A pickleball court is the same size as a doubles badminton court and measures 20×44 feet. In pickleball, the same court is used for both singles and doubles play. The net height is 36 inches at the sidelines and 34 inches in the middle. Pickleball court is striped similar to a tennis court with right and left service courts and a 7-foot non-volley zone in front of the net (referred to as the “kitchen”).

You play either singles or doubles/mixed doubles.  You use a small paddle about the size of a racquetball racquet and the ball is similar to a wiffle ball.  The game has only a handful of rules.
