There’s a debate going on in pickleball whether we should change from Side Out scoring to Rally Scoring. Not sure what the difference is?
Rally Scoring is a scoring method where points can be won by the serving or receiving team.
Side Out Scoring is a format of scoring where points can be won only by the serving team.
All the other paddle/racquet/net sports had a similar decision to make and they decided to switch to the rally scoring system. Let’s talk pros and cons to switching to rally scoring:
Most agree that the receiving team has the advantage currently. Why? The 2-bounce rule requires that the serving team must stay back so the service return can bounce. Because of this, the receiving team will get to the kitchen line first. Some argue that beginning and intermediate players will not be able to improve their skills.
