Wondering the meaning or definition of a word or phrase that you heard on the pickleball court? For instance, what is a dink? What about a golden pickle? Third-shot drop? Kitchen violation? Nasty Nelson?
The Pickleball Dictionary breaks down and defines the common words, phrases, sayings, people, and organizations found in, on, and around the pickleball courts. The Pickleball Dictionary also includes all of the various words and other pickleball terms of art that are found in the Official Rulebook for pickleball.
