Have you ever seen a pickleball player win a point like Matt Wright and Yana Grechkina in the video below?
If a player hits a pickleball with so much spin (like Matt Wright did) that the pickleball bounces on the opponents’ side of the pickleball court and then spins into the net, then there is a dead ball (and play stops immediately). And, the player that hit the pickleball (in this case, Matt Wright) will win the rally.
A rare occurrence on the court, but a great feeling to win a point without even giving your opponents a chance to hit the pickleball!
