Everyone in the pickleball ball world has been buzzing about official changes to the USA Pickleball/International Federation of Pickleball rules.
USA Pickleball has posted documents to help us keep it all straight. Click here for both the Official Rulebook (for tournament play) and the Alternate Rulebook (for non-tournament play), plus the 2021 Rules Change Document. The new rules kick in on January 25, 2021. There is a one-year comment period for the Alternate Rulebook.
Phew. That’s a lot of readin’ and writin’ for us dinkheads.
For those with shorter attention spans, USA Pickleball is now on Twitter at @USAPickleball.
