Official Rules
 
The USA Pickleball Association (USAPA) follows the official rules established by the International Federation of Pickleball. Here in Pickleburg, we play by those same rules.
 
 
 

 
2016 Rules Changes:
 
10.F. Calling the Score: The score should be called as three numbers. The proper sequence for calling the score is: server score, receiver score, then, for doubles only, (server) 1 or 2. To start a match, the score will be called as: zero - zero - two. Prior to the potential final game or match point, DO NOT add any phrase such as "potential game point" or "potential match point." 
 
2.E.3. Size (Paddle): The combined length and width including any edge guard and butt cap shall not exceed 24 inches (60.96 cm). The paddle length cannot exceed 17 inches (43.18 cm). There is no restriction on paddle thickness. (revised January 1st, 2016, effective July 1st, 2016)
