Pickleball: Is this serve “legal”? – VIDEO

I can’t tell you how many times I see people using illegal serves during recreational play. A serve has several key elements:

  • The serve has to be done with an upward path (underhand)
  • The head of the paddle needs to be below the wrist when the ball is struck
  • Contact with the ball must be made below waist level


This is what it looks like in pictures

[ From p.17 of USAPA & IFP Official Tournament Rulebook ]

Of course the server’s feet have to be appropriately within bounds and behind the baseline until after the ball is struck.

There are those who have always used a serve that would not meet all of these requirements, but others may have “drifted” away from a legal serve through bad habits or poor practice.

My serve was questioned recently and I went back to the drawing board to make sure that I was complying with all elements. I wanted to be “obviously” correct. As you can see in the video below, it isn’t always easy to tell if a serve is completely legal.

Watch Mark Renneson of Third Shot Pickleball as he demonstrates a variety of serves and discusses the differences between them and whether or not they might be considered illegal, i.e. a fault!

Photography: My Shot – Thanksgiving Reversi

When we think of turkeys, it is quite often related to Thanksgiving when we feast upon their bounty. We don’t often see humans feeding wild turkeys for the turkey’s benefit.

The Tom turkey in this picture was proudly watching over two hens. Being very protective of them, he would puff up and turn vividly colorful if we approached too near.

They were enjoying the feed left for them by the custodians of Brown Canyon Ranch located in the foothills of the Huachuca Mountains, near Sierra Vista, Arizona.
