PICKLEBALL TERMS THAT START WITH THE LETTER "Y"
The pickleball terms, phrases, words, people, and organizations that start with the letter "Y" include:
Yellow – The most common color of the pickleball is a shade of yellow.
Yellow Zone – A dink by your opponents that is at or just above the pickleball net is in the “yellow zone.” Like a yellow light at an intersection, you have some decision making to do. You have the choice to go through the intersection or put on the brakes. The same concept applies to the “yellow zone”—you can remain in the dink or you could try to attack the dink and put the pickleball away for a winning shot.
You! – Communication is key on the pickleball courts. One common phrase used by pickleball players to communicate between partners is “YOU!” when exclaiming that your partner should hit the pickleball.

Referees are a part of every sport, and an important part of every sport. Referees are the ones that enforce the rules of the game. They ensure that the players all play by the same set of rules, and instill a sense of confidence in the players and the fans that the right player or team at the end of the game was victorious and that there was no foul play. Learn more on why referees are so impactful to the sport of pickleball!
Have you ever cleaned your pickleball paddle? If not, you should because your pickleball paddle can become quite dirty. The grit of your pickleball paddle can capture dirt, which will make your pickleball paddle smooth and less effective at putting spin on the pickleball. As a result, you should clean your pickleball paddle from time to time, so that it plays more “like new” and you have the benefit of the gritty, textured paddle surface.
