What Is Pickleball?

Games are set up in a similar fashion to tennis. Using a pickleball paddle, the serving player serves the pickleball underhand cross-court (i.e. across the center line of the court).

Pickleball Court

According to USA Pickleball, “A pickleball court is the same size as a doubles badminton court and measures 20×44 feet.” Here are some logistics of the game:

The same court is used for both singles and doubles play.

The net height is 36 inches at the sidelines and 34 inches in the middle.

The court is striped, similar to a tennis court, with right and left service courts and a 7-foot non-volley zone in front of the net (referred to as the “kitchen”).

Courts can be constructed specifically for pickleball or converted using existing tennis or badminton courts.

How to Play Pickleball

The pickleball must bounce on the court for both the serve and the return of the serve. This is known as the “two-bounce rule.” A volley ensues after the completion of the two-bounce rule.

Pickleball Faults

A rally is concluded when a fault occurs:

A double-bounce of the pickleball.

Hitting the net.

The pickleball hits a player anywhere other than below their paddle-side wrist.

Hitting the pickleball out of bounds.

Stepping into the Non-Volley Zone.

“The Kitchen” aka Non-Volley Zone

Unlike other paddle-based court sports, pickleball includes a 14-section in the middle of the court, extending seven feet into each side’s territory, known as the Non-Volley Zone; colloquially known as “The Kitchen.”

If a player hits the ball in the Kitchen or their momentum carries them into the Kitchen during a volley, the rally is over and the point goes to the opposing side.

The Reebok Nano Court will be available on June 20, 2024, for $120 USD on and select retailers worldwide in unisex and women’s colorways.
