"Pickleball courts are popping up all over, as everyone from former presidents to NBA referees seem to be getting into the game." Read the full article from Boardroom here.
Having reviewed the latest PHO Order, December 21, 2021, and in consideration of prior Orders, guidelines from viaSport and other related information - we see NO additional restrictions that apply to pickleball at this time.
If the gym or facility you wish to frequent allows pickleball play - please do so responsibly - masks when not on the court, physical distancing, limited players in your group, hand sanitizing, do not play if you are not feeling well, etc.

Holiday greetings from JoAnne Bentley of the Sunshine Coast Pickleball Association:
Two of the more significant rule changes that will take place in 2022 are:
In 2022, a player can spin the ball before striking it on the serve, but only one hand at a time can contact the ball before the ball is hit. No foreign substances, material, apparatus, or additional body parts can be applied to the hand or aid the hand that releases the pickleball.
The Drop Serve
No changes were made to the drop serve other than to remove its Provisional status.
