Hot Off The Presses

2022 Official Rulebook

The purpose of the rulebook is to provide pickleball players around the world with the rules necessary for recreational play, organized league, competitive and tournament play. Some sections of this rulebook are designed to be used only for the conducting of sanctioned tournaments. A sanctioned tournament allows players to be ranked on a national or international basis.

Non-sanctioned tournaments may also use these sections as guidelines. Tournament Directors of non-sanctioned tournaments may be flexible in the use of these guidelines to better fit the skills, ages, and diversity of their players. The IPF enthusiastically encourage both sanctioned and non-sanctioned tournaments to promote knowledge and growth of the sport, skill development, and having fun while playing pickleball.
