A Service Foot Fault?

Rules Refresh Stacie Townsend 02-06-2023

Have you ever seen a foot fault on a serve? If not, check out the video below, where pickleball pro Rob Nunnery gets called for a foot fault on his serve.

Your foot placement is important at the point of contact on your serve. At the point of contact between your paddle and the pickleball, at least one foot must remain in contact with the ground behind the baseline. Further, neither of your feet may touch the court on or inside the baseline, or on or outside of the imaginary extension lines of the applicable sideline or centerline. After you make contact on your serve, you are free to place your feet wherever you see fit.

Bottom line – Beware of your feet at the point of contact on your serve.
