SAUGEEN SHORES PICKLEBALL CLUB AT LAKESHORE
*We have 8 Pickleball Courts at our facility*
Lakeshore is the home of the Saugeen Shores Pickleball Club during the summer season!
what is pickleball?
• Pickleball is a racquet sport which combines elements of badminton, tennis, and table tennis. The sport is played on a court with the same dimensions as a doubles badminton court. The net is similar to a tennis net, but is mounted two inches lower. The game is played with a hard paddle and a polymer wiffle ball.
• Although pickleball appears to be very similar to tennis, there are key differences that make pickleball appropriate for all ages of players. Major differences include:
• The speed of the pickleball ball which typically moves at one-third of the average speed of a tennis ball
• The size of the court which is just under one-third of the total area of a tennis court.
The ball is served underhand starting from the right-hand side of the court and is served diagonally to the opponent’s service zone.
Points are scored by the serving side only and occur when the opponent faults (fails to return ball, hits ball out of bounds, etc.). The server continues to serve, alternating service courts, until the server faults. The first side scoring eleven points and leading by at least two points wins.
The return of service must be allowed to bounce by the server and partner i.e. cannot be volleyed. Consequently the server's partner usually stays at the baseline until the first return has been hit back.
