Basic Pickleball Rules

For a full list of rules, please visit the USA Pickleball website.

  • Pickleball is played either as doubles (two players per team) or singles.
  • Any fair method can be used to determine which player or team has first choice of side, service, or receive.
  • When the ball is served, the receiving team must let it bounce before returning, and then the serving team must let it bounce before returning, thus two bounces. This is called the Two-Bounce Rule, rule eliminates the serve and volley advantage and extends rallies.
  • After the ball has bounced once in each team’s court, both teams may either volley the ball (hit the ball before it bounces) or play it off a bounce (ground stroke).
  • Points are scored only by the serving team.
  • Games are normally played to 11 points, win by 2.
