The Pickleball Dictionary carries on to the “Q’s”! Let’s breakdown some of the common phrases, words, people, or organizations found in, on, and around the pickleball courts that start with the letter “Q.”
Quick – Quickness is key on the pickleball court—quick feet, quick hands, and quick decision making. Quick feet will allow you to track down more shots and keep you in a lot of points; quick hands will allow you to react to more fastballs; and quick decision making will allow you to make better, more strategic shots on the pickleball court. To learn a few drills to work on your quickness, check out Pickler’s My Pro Pickleball Coach online video lessons.

Queen of the Court – Queen of the Court (also referred to as King of the Court) is a game you can play on the pickleball courts in either doubles, singles, or skinny singles, with a large group of people. One team (or one person during singles and skinny singles) goes to the opposite side of the court and is designated the “queens” or “kings” of the pickleball court. Another team (or person) challenges the queens/kings to one point or a series of points. If the challengers win, then they become the queens/kings and switch to the opposite side of the court. The next team (or person) then challenges the winning team, and the old queens/kings move to the back of the line of challengers.
