Playing pickleball is very similar to tennis and badminton, but the scoring is different.
Pickleball is played on a doubles badminton size court.
The net is 34″ high at the center and can be played as singles or doubles.
Points are gained only by the serving team and the score must be announced before each serve.
The game is played to 11 points, but you must win by 2 points.
To begin, the team that serves first only gets one serve, but thereafter, each team member gets to serve until they side-out. The score includes the serving team score (e.g. 5), the receiving team score (e.g. 3) and the server number (either the #1 for the first server on the team or #2 for the second server). So for example, the second server from the serving team would announcing the score to be 5–3–2 since they were winning 5–3.
Serving is always done underhand, below the bellybutton, from behind the baseline, across the court and past the kitchen (the no-volley zone).
Points are scored by the serving team only.
