2021 brings more than 100 rule changes to Pickleball — these went into effect on January 21, 2021:
Three changes that you might find interesting include:
- There are no more “lets”: A serve that hits the tape and lands in the correct service box is now live and must be played.
- Drop serves are allowed: Serves may be hit after the ball bounces and with no restrictions on the nature of the swing.
- Asking about positions: Serving teams can now ask both whether they are the correct server and in correct position.
