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.

Yes! Y not have a proper singles court within the doubles court. Y? Because like tennis and badminton have and Y? Because it works and that’s been proven. Pickleball is at the Y fork in the road. So, it’s decision time now. Y? So that PB can be in the 0lympics as those other sports are and have been for a while now. Y should we lag behind them when we’re growing so incredibly fast. Y don’t we also adopt the ‘rally scoring system’? Y? Because it makes so much sense and also required by the IOC, and also because the others had to also conform and agree to do just that. Y? Because it makes so much sense. You have only 2 numbers in the score and only have to say the one that represents the score and not the server number. Don’t think about it any more, just implement it and have everyone in Pickleball use these two important elements that are so vital for the sport to grow not just in popularity but in wholesomeness and take that one HUGE step into the GAMES! Thank You for listening and Gluck! Go Pickleball! Y? Because we all love it and want it to earn its rightful place among all the 0lympics sports. Y? Better now than later. Already it’s going to take till at least 2008.
Y? Because when they do agree to include PB it will only be as a non medal sport and as an exhibition or demo sport. Then and only then does it have a shot at becoming a full 🏅 medal sport, if the numbers (popularity, viewership, and if it becomes necessary to bump another medal sport. Loooong and arduous process but one we rightfully deserve. ‘Y’ E S!
