CELEBRATING THE BEST OF PICKLEBALL AT THE YMCA

The YMCA Bethesda-Chevy Chase hosted a day of Pickleball featuring the #1 pickleball player and doubles team in the world, Ben and Collin Johns, on Monday, June 7th.  The day’s events included a round-robin, clinic, and exhibition led by the best players in the world, supported by YMCA’s Pickleball Director, Sonny Tannan. With over 300 people in attendance, the Y was able to provide a memorable experience to members and the local Pickleball community.  In addition, vital funds were raised when an autographed paddle autographed by Ben Johns was auctioned off in the evening, which led to seven children to attend YMCA Summer Camp who could otherwise not afford a summer camp experience. If you’d like to make a contribution to make an even larger impact, we welcome your support to help send a kid to camp by clicking here!

The five basic pickleball rules are:

  1. Serving must be underhand from the baseline, diagonally crosscourt, and the serve cannot land in the no-volley zone (kitchen).
  2. The serving player/team must let the return of serve bounce.
  3. The ball must stay in bounds during play and bounce no more than once per side.
  4. Players cannot hit the ball in the air when in the kitchen.
  5. Games are played to 11, win by two. Points are only scored by the serving player/team. There are more rules to the game, but these five will help you to get started. Have fun!
