PICKLEBALL TERMS THAT START WITH THE LETTER “V”

The pickleball terms, phrases, words, people, and organizations that start with the letter “V” include:

Victory – The team or player on the pickleball court that wins the match claims victory, which is a great feeling for any pickleball player.

Villages – The Villages is a 55+ community in Central Florida that is home to more than 50,000 people and over 200 pickleball courts. The Villages is definitely a mecca for pickleball in the United States.

Violation – Pursuant to the rules of pickleball, a violation of the rules or behavioral code of conduct on the pickleball court will likely result in a referee giving a technical warning or even a technical foul to the violating player/team.

Volley – A volley is a hit of the pickleball out of the air, before the pickleball bounces on the court. Generally speaking, there are three types of volleys on the pickleball court: (1) a block volley; (2) a punch volley; and (3) a swing volley. A block volley is a shot you will use when you do not have much reaction time and you are trying to absorb the speed or power of the pickleball. A punch volley is a shot where you may have more time or room to attack a pickleball, but you probably should not be too aggressive and overplay the pickleball. A swing volley is your put-away volley when the pickleball is clearly attackable. To learn how to perfect your volleys, and when, why and how to hit the various types of volleys, check out Pickler’s online pickleball video lessons.

Volunteer – Volunteers have driven the growth of the sport of pickleball. People across the world have volunteered hundreds and thousands of hours to help grow the sport. Thank you to all of the countless volunteers! The sport of pickleball would not be the same without you.
