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.

Ever wanted to ask a Gold Medal winner about how they go to that level?
Have a pickleball question for one of the top players in the game?
We’re putting together a webinar with Daniel Moore and would love to know what questions you want the answers to. We’ll create slides with questions for him to answer and could include yours.
Last week, the USAPA rolled out their new player rating system. The UTPR (USAPA Tournament Player Ratings) was established to have a more accurate assessment of all players.
With the previous or legacy system, the ratings were based on tournament directors and each player’s own ratings. (Surely no one would play down a level, would they?)
With tournaments getting bigger and more players entering the sport, it became difficult to track everyone correctly.
The UTPR is comprised using up to 3 years of tournament history from pickleballtournaments.com. It’s based on past performance and will help in seeding future tournaments.
