Pickleball Court

Pickleball Court

The court used for Pickleball is similar to a doubles badminton court. The court’s size is 20×44 feet for both singles and doubles. The net that is used is hung up at 36 inches on the ends, and 34 inches at the center.

The court is striped like a tennis court, with no alleys; but the outer courts, and not the inner courts, are divided in half by service lines. The inner courts are non-volley zones and extend 7 feet from the net on either side.

Equipment

The following equipment is needed when playing: Players, Pickleball paddle, net, and a pickleball.

A pickleball has holes through it like a whiffle ball, that comes in a variety of colors, but must be a single color to meet International Federation of Pickleball specifications. Pickleball can be played inside or outside depending on the different models of the balls.

Pickleball History

Why Is it Called Pickleball?

It depends upon who you ask. We know that Joel Pritchard, Bill Bell, and Barney McCallum invented Pickleball back in 1965. That much is clear.

Because the game is a combination of tennis, badminton, and ping pong (or table tennis if you prefer), Joel Pritchard’s wife said she started calling the game pickleball because the combination of games reminded her of the pickle boat in crew rowing where the oarsmen were chosen from the leftovers from the other boats. But, Barney McCallum said they named the game after the Pritchard’s dog “Pickles” who used to interrupt play by running off with the balls on occasion.

Either way, there’s a quick glimpse into the history. Just get out there and enjoy the game.
