News Stacie Townsend 03-08-2020

Wondering the meaning or definition of a word or phrase that you heard on the pickleball court? For instance, what is a dink? What about a golden pickle? Third-shot drop? Kitchen violation? Nasty Nelson?

The Pickleball Dictionary breaks down and defines the common words, phrases, sayings, people, and organizations found in, on, and around the pickleball courts. The Pickleball Dictionary also includes all of the various words and other pickleball terms of art that are found in the Official Rulebook for pickleball.

The Pickleball Dictionary started out as a blog on thepickler.com. Pickler then consolidated the blog posts, with the great submissions and contributions from pickleball players across the world, to create the first Pickleball Dictionary, made by pickleball players, for pickleball players. Pickler now gives away The Pickleball Dictionary for FREE!
