Check out this great 5-minute explainer video below:
Here is a great resource from the U.S.A. Pickleball Association:
Very often players will want a clarification on certain rules of pickleball play. At both Lincoln Park and Pine Ridge courts, there is a 2022 USAPA Rule Book (2023 is on order) in each storage box on site.
Each rule book has a sticker saying: “Property of WSPC. Please return to storage box.” So please, don’t take it home with you.
The official pickleball rulebook is published by the USA Pickleball Association (USAPA) and International Federation of Pickleball (IFP). The USAPA and IFP are the governing bodies of American and international pickleball that formulate and interpret all the rules of the sport. The rulebook is a living document. New rules are added each year and old rules are frequently amended.
