More people of all ages are giving the game of pickleball a try. One of the fundamental rules in this racquet sport is the two-bounce rule. Here’s an overview on how the rule works.
Here is how the two-bounce rule works in pickleball:
- When the ball is served, the receiving team must let it bounce before returning, and then the serving team must let it bounce before returning, thus two bounces
- After the ball has bounced once in each team’s court, both teams may either volley the ball (hit the ball before it bounces) or play it off a bounce (ground stroke)
- The two-bounce rule eliminates the serve and volley advantage and extends rallies
