Know the Score
 
Keeping score in pickleball is a source of confusion for just about everyone. It does gets easier over time, we promise!  The USA Pickleball publishes the Official Rules so be sure to read them thoroughly.
 
Can't remember if your score is ODD or EVEN.....check out this Memory Jogger:
 
 
Here is one more simple idea to help keep scoring straight: At the start of each game, make a mental note of the player that served first for each side. If the rotation is done correctly, a team’s score will always be even when that player is on the right and odd when that player is on the left. You might even want to have the game's Starting server on each side wear a colorful wristband.
