Now, over 40 years later, Pickleball is played at thousands of school Physical Eduation programs, parks and recreation centers, correctional facilities, camps, YMCAs and retirement communities.

Each team consists of one to two players each. Each team's goal is to get the ball, or pickleball, across the net until there is a fault in the rally, until someone gets hit with the ball, or a mistake in the play, such as the ball hitting the net, falling out of bounds, or the ball does not get hit by a paddle. When the for a turn at serving. The ball goes directly to the other team where they get a first serve. This only happens on the first serve. All other serves are passed to his/her partner once, then if a mistake happens, and both team members have served, the ball is passed to the other team. Every time the ball is hit by a participating team member, the ball must bounce once on the other side of the net before the other team may hit the ball. If the ball bounces twice it is considered a fault for the team on the side of the net that the ball landed on. The team that served gets one point every time the other team makes a fault. If the ball is in the Non Volley Zone in the air, the ball cannot be hit, or it is considered a fault. Every time a team scores a point, the side on which he/she serves on varies. If the team has an even number of points, the server serves on the right side of the court. If the server has an odd number of points, the server serves on the left side of the court. Every time a fault is committed on the team who did not serve last, the server switches sides on the court and continues to serve. He/She does not pass the ball over to their teammate.
