Mid Season Rule Changes for USA Pickleball

As the sport of pickleball continues to evolve, USA Pickleball is committed to providing a set of rules that best guides the game forward and facilitates the best playing experience possible at all skill levels. The USA Pickleball Board of Directors recently approved a recommendation from the USA Pickleball Rules Committee for the following rule changes to take effect for both professional and amateur players immediately.

Due to several factors, including an immediate positive impact on quality of play during the remainder of the 2023 amateur tournaments, as well as uniformity between the USA Pickleball Rulebook and the amateur and pro games, these rule revisions necessitated a mid-year implementation rather than delaying changes until 2024. 

Please see below for an updated 2023 USA Pickleball Online Rulebook, editing instructions to the hardcopy version of the 2023 Rulebook, as well as a brief Q&A on these rule changes.
