Pickleball Dictionary: The Z's of Pickleball

The Pickleball Dictionary zigs and zags to the “Z’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 “Z.”

Zero-Zero-Two – How do you start each game? You call the score as Zero-Zero-Two! In other words, the score is 0-0 and the first pickleball player to serve the pickleball is the second server.

Zone – There are various “zones” on the pickleball court, including the non-volley zone (also known as the kitchen), the baseline area and the transition zone (also known as no man’s land, which is the area between the non-volley zone and area near the baseline).

Can you think of any more pickleball “Z’s” to add? Share with us in the comments below!

Then, the jumping pickleball player tries to argue that he/she did not commit a Non-Volley-Zone fault because he/she hit the pickleball while jumping in the air above the Non-Volley Zone?
