Rules

Pickleball Rules


Rules are adapted from the Official USA Pickleball Rulebook. Anything not covered in these rules will follow the official rulebook found here.


General Rules

  • Pickleball is played on a 20-foot by 44-foot court with a net dividing the court. The court is future divided on each side into right and left service courts and the non-volley zone.
  • The ball is served diagonally across the net to the opponents receiving court using an approved serve.
  • Points are scored only by the serving side during regular play. Due to time constraints rally scoring may be implemented and players will be notified by the League Director or League Coordinator.
  • All games are scored to 11; the team that reaches 11 points first will win, there is no "win by 2" requirement. Exceptions are made for playoff and tournament play at the League/Tournament Directors' discretion.
  • Rally scoring means that every serve will score a point regardless of who the serving team is.
  • All matches are self-officiated and the player that is closest to the ball should make the call regarding in or out.
  • All players are to be respectful of all calls, whether they agree or not


Game Play

  • Two-Bounce Rule: After the ball is served, the ball must bounce on each side prior to volleying the ball.
  • Non-Volley Zone(NVZ) or Kitchen: A player is not allowed to volley the ball without it first bouncing in the NVZ

We really depend on your attendance to keep things running smoothly, please let me know as soon as possible if you will be missing any weeks!

Flow: Your first-week opponents will be random. After this week, it will be based on your win-loss record. Your record and standings can be seen on our League website.

Frequently Asked Questions

Nope! Most of our leagues and tournaments allow you to join as a free agent or with one or with a group of friends (while being kept together), in fact, most first time players join this way. When you register we'll ask a few simple questions and we'll do our best to fill out your roster with players like you. That said, the free agent pool for some leagues, like cornhole are limited so your best bet is to join with a friend and form a complete team.

Generally, registration covers the cost of equipment, facility use, umpires/refs and a team shirt. You'll also be given access to the various social events we host and sponsor throughout the year.
