you hit the subscribe and then the bell. That way every Saturday you’ll get a notification. When I post a new video. With the explosion in the growth of pickleball,
there’s been a lot of discussion about making a change from the traditional way we score
to rally scoring. It would probably be easier for new players
to understand. The courts would be less crowded because games
could be faster and pickleball would be more marketable for television. There are a lot of clubs already using rally
scoring to alleviate crowded courts. If you’re one of those clubs, put it down
in the comments below and tell us what you think about rally scoring. Pickleball scoring was originally based on
badminton scoring and frankly badminton changed a few years back. Chris Allen from the pickleball show recently
hosted a podcast where they talked about rally scoring in depth. He made an awesome point by saying, if you’ve
never experienced it, chances are you should do it before you weigh in on it. If you don’t already subscribe to Chris’s
podcast, go to the show notes below and you’ll find a link. There are a couple of basics that you need
to know about rally scoring. First of all, each rally is worth a point. Forget server one and server two. Each side is only going to get one serve but
throughout the game each person will have the chance to serve. It’s important to remember that the right
side of the court is the even side and the left side of the court is the odd side. The serving teams score determines the side
of the court from which the serve will be played. When the serving team has an even score, the
serve will be made from the right or the even side of the court. When the serving team has an odd score, the
serve will be made from the left or the odd side of the court. A game begins at 0-0 with one team serving
from the even or the right side of the court. The serving team wins the point. This is the only time that players will alternate
sides. They change sides and the server keeps serving. The score is 1-0. The opponents win a rally, which means they
get a point and they get the next serve. The score is now 1-1. The person who is standing on the odd side
of the court will be the server for the next point. The serving team wins a point, which means
they will switch sides and that person will keep serving. The score is now 2-1. One, you’ll notice that the person is serving
from the even side of the court. The opponents win the rally, which means they
get the point and they will get the next serve. The score is now 2-2. The person who is standing in the even side
of the court will be the new server. A couple of points to keep in mind. Players do not alternate sides of the court
unless they are the serving team and they have won a point. Because the games are a little faster, they’re
typically played to either 15 or 21 win by 1 or win by 2. I know from previous videos that scoring can
be confusing, so if you’re still not sure how to do rally scoring, make sure that you
click on the link that’s coming up above. It’s going to take you to a blog post that
goes into greater detail. As Chris mentioned in his podcast, it’s important
to give this a try. Since a point is available during every rally,
it’s going to change some strategies. Are you going to go after that big, maybe
not so reliable serve If you know that the other team is going to score a point from
it? If you’ve experienced rally scoring, let everybody
know in the comments below and tell us what strategies you found most valuable to change. Speaking of strategies, if you’d like more
