About Pickleball

Pickleball is easy to learn and easy to participate because it doesn’t require coordination of large teams and doesn’t require a regulars-only commitment. More of a social mixer game, pickleball provides the opportunity to make new friends every time you play. It’s all about getting some exercise, meeting new people and having fun – of course, all in a low-stress environment.

Indoor shoes are required to play.

How to Play

Pickleball is a combination of tennis, badminton, and ping pong. It’s played on a short court with a centered net, with players using mid-size paddles and large softball-size wiffle balls. The overall goal is to score the most points through mental strategies and physical placement skills – essentially outsmarting your opponent/s!

Top Level Rules

  • Games are played either singles or doubles.

  • To win the game, you must earn 11 points and win by 2 points. 

  • The “one-bounce” rule applies throughout the game.

  • Don’t get caught in the “kitchen!” This is the space located in the front of the court, closest to the net – if you’re in the kitchen when you hit the ball, your point is null.


Tips for Winning

  • Easy points come with savvy serves. Practice your serve and see the impact on your score!

  • Playing doubles? Communication is key! Make sure to call “mine” or “yours” to ensure your duo is on the same pickleball page.

  • Think ‘dink’ – a soft, but strong play cleverly used to cause your opponent to struggle to return the ball. Count on points when you master this slick shot. 

  • Lofty lobs keep opponents in the back court so you can dominate the net – this is where you make that winning “put away” and earn the champ title!

  • It’s all about the spin – whether it’s topspin or underspin, you can change the game with this technique. Add mega bounce or cut the bounce short – keep ‘em guessing!
