Pickleball Game

Pickleball is a court sport played on a badminton-sized court with the net set to a height of 34 inches at the center. It is played with a perforated plastic ball like a wiffle ball and composite or wooden paddles about twice the size of ping-pong paddles. It can be played indoors or outdoors and is easy for beginners to learn, but can develop into a fast-paced, competitive game for experienced players. In addition, the game has developed a passionate following due to its friendly, social nature, and its multi-generational appeal.

Pickleball can be played as singles or doubles. New players can learn the basic rules quickly in a single session. Equipment is inexpensive and easily portable. The game can be played by all ages and is particular popular in school P.E. programs and in adult living communities.

The Court

A Pickleball court is 20’ x 44’ for both singles and doubles.  The net is hung at 36” at the ends and hangs 34” in the middle.  A non-volley zone extends 7’ back from the net on each side, commonly called “the kitchen”.

The Equipment

Competitive paddles used in Pickleball are constructed from a high-tech composite, ranging in cost from US$50-US$150 each.  An official Pickleball is made of plastic and is between 0.78 to 0.935 ounces and 2.874 to 2.972 inches in diameter.  There a no color restrictions other than the ball must be a single, consistent color.
