Pickleball is a sport played by two players. It was invented in the 1970s and it has since become popular in North America, Europe, Asia and Australia.
There are three rules of pickleball:
1) To start play, the serving player must bounce the ball “gently” on the floor before service;
2) Players cannot obstruct an opponent’s view of the court; and
3) Play is allowed only on courts designated for pickleball.
To say before you serve in pickleball, you must say: “Pardon me” or “Excuse me” followed by your name to let your opponent know that you are about to serve.
What are the Rules of a Pickleball Court?
There are some basic rules that must be followed when playing pickleball on a court or in a game.
* A pickle ball court must have the net spread out so no player can hit their own teammate with the ball.
* The limits are shown by three white lines. These are called the hash marks and their destination is always across from them .
If all players reach those limits, then extra players on each team take turns throwing the ball onto the other hash marks to try and score.
* Choose your angles before talking to defend an offensive move- if you can’t stop it from happening then always let them get as close to you as possible at time and time reverse yourself- throw to try once winning back court position.

Rules of Play
This sectioning is designed to provide a short intro to the game of pickleball.
Before you serve into the opposing court, you should strike the ball at the head of his side to win a point or knock it off-court towards your own court.
You must score 11 points or up to 12 points
Situation: One person serves the ball to the next player, who must hit it over a net and then return it while moving backwards quickly. If they do, they get service but if they make contact with the floor or net before returning the ball, they then become the newly-served team’s server.
Basic steps for serving in pickleball: Rest your racket on your shoulder (around 45 degrees). Hold your racket over your head. Swing back and then move to serve from front of court, near where you want to backhand serve from. Push hands forward motion at time of serve using pushing motion on racket handle so that your hand crosses in front about 1/3rd distance from end of handle for instance (1/2 way or 3/4th is also accepted). End extending from tip of racket where grip is located in order to balance out weight behind.
Here are some phrases that everyone must familiarize themselves with before climbing up onto the court at once,
-“Let’s hit all day long.”
-“It’s friendly game.”
-“I’ll be getting all flavor.”
After a successful pickleball serve, it is always important to say something out loud. Something like “Good return”, “Thank you very much,” or “Score!” does the trick before bouncing back so you can prepare for the next perfect serve.
