Know the rules

Whether you’re just learning or have been playing for a while, it’s always helpful to know the official rules of the game. The rules of pickleball were codified by the International Federation of Pickleball (IFP). IFP was formed to ensure consistency within the game internationally. The USA Pickleball Association is a member organization of IFP and conducts business according to their Constitution and Bylaws.
