PICKLEBALL – How to Play
The ball has to land within the white lines on either side of the court when in play. Technically, if it hits the line, it’s in.
At the start of the game, there should be one bounce per side before you can volley the ball.
Serving must be at the baseline, one foot behind it. The serve must also be underhand, the ball held below the waistline and served diagonally.
The serve can’t land in the non-volley zone – ie, anywhere inside the lined box – which is seven feet from the net, on both sides.
The game ends at 11, 15 or 21 points. Similarly to volleyball and tennis, the winning team must win by at least two points. When playing to 11, teams switch sides of the court when the first hits six points; if 21, the switch is at eight points
Head Sport was founded in the United States in 1950 by aeronautical engineer Howard Head. In the late 1960s, a tennis division was created when Howard Head figured out a way of strengthening the tennis racket by introducing the aluminium frame. The idea became a success and was first introduced in the 1969 US Open. In 1975 , one of the tennis players that Head sponsored, Arthur Ashe, incredibly won Wimbledon, defeating the favoured Jimmy Connors. In 1997, Head created the first titanium and graphite tennis racket. Head proved to be successful in 2012, with three Major winners during the year : Novak Djokovic at the Australian Open, Maria Sharapova at the French Open and Andy Murray at the US Open. Head started integrating graphene into their rackets in 2013.
