History of Pickleball

Pickleball is a game that has been around for over 100 years. It is played by two people, and it is played on a court which is approximately 9 feet by 6 feet. The players are allowed to play with either a paddle or a racquet, but they must have a ball in their hand at all times.

The rules of pickleball are very simple. There are two teams, and each team has one player who serves the ball to the other player. The ball must be hit with a racket or a paddle. The ball must bounce once before it can be hit again. If the ball hits the net, it is out of bounds and cannot be hit again.

There are many different variations of this game. There are many different types of paddles and racquets. One variation is called “doubles.” This is where two people are playing together, and they serve the ball to each other. The other variation is called “singles.” In singles, one person is playing against another person. The ball can only be hit once, and it cannot bounce more than once.

Another variation is called “pinch” or “pin”. This is when the ball is hit with a paddle, but it is not bounced. It goes straight through the net.
