Pickleball is the most exciting sport sweeping the country.  Part tennis, part badminton, but loads of fun.  This racquet sport, is played on a 20’ x 40’ court or a gymnasium floor, is great for racquet sport enthusiasts, but limits the amount of required mobility to play the game.  Great for all ages, from children to seniors.  This is a great way to stay active and in shape.  Very easy to learn and safe to play.  Join now and have the time of your life.

When playing Pickle-ball the serve must be hit underhand and each team must play their first shot off the bounce. After the ball has bounced once on each side then both teams can either volley the ball in the air or play it off the bounce. This eliminates the serve and volley advantage and prolongs the rallies. To volley a ball means to hit it in the air without first letting it bounce.

No volleying is permitted within the seven foot non-volley zone, preventing players from executing smashes from a position within the serve foot zone on both sides of the net. This promotes the drop volley or “dink” shot playing strategies, as pickle-ball is a game of shot placement and patience, not brute power or strength. 

Both players on the serving team are allowed to serve, and a team shall score points only when serving. A game is played to eleven points and a team must win by two points. Points are lost by hitting the ball out of bounds, hitting the net, stepping into the non-volley zone and volleying the ball, or by volleying the ball before the ball has bounced once on each side of the net.
