What is Pickleball?

Pickleball was born in 1965. After playing golf during the summer, Joel Pritchard, a congressman from Washington, and Bill Bell, a successful businessman, returned to Pritchard’s home on Bainbridge Island, not far from Seattle, Washington. With bored children at home, they sought to play badminton on an old badminton court but couldn’t find the proper equipment. They improvised and played with table tennis paddles and a perforated plastic ball. They began with the net at a badminton net height (60 inches high) and volleyed the ball back and forth over the net.

Eventually as play progressed during the weekend, they found the ball bounced well on the asphalt surface and they would eventually lower the net to 36 inches high. The following weekend, Barney McCallum joined and began playing and the three men created rules for pickleball.

PICKLEBALL RULES

  • Only the serving team can score
  • In doubles, both teammates get the opportunity to serve in each round
  • All serves must be underhand
  • The ball must bounce before hitting the return shot on the serve and return. Players can only serve cross-court and the ball is not allowed to land in the non-volley zone, also known as “The Kitchen”
  • The Kitchen may not be entered at any time during play unless the ball lands in the kitchen.
  • Games are played until one team reaches 11 points, and must be won by two points
