Rules

Pickleball is a sport in which two, three, or four players use solid paddles made of wood or composite materials to hit a perforated polymer ball over a net. The sport shares features of other racquet sports, the dimensions and layout of a badminton court, and a net and rules similar to tennis, with a few modifications.

Scoring

Game is played to 11, win by 2. Each team member gets to serve until they lose the point, with one exception, the team that serves first only gets 1 serve. The score is a series of 3 number; serving team score, receiving team score, server #1 or #2. Ex. 7-3-2 means serving team has 7 points, opposing team has 3 points and it is the second server about to serve.

Serving

Must serve underhand from behind the baseline, cross-court, into the service area past the kitchen. Only the serving team can score points.

Quirky Rules

After the serve, the receiving team must let the ball bounce, then the serving team must let that return bounce before hitting. After that the ball may be volleyed (hit in the air) or off the bounce. A player cannot strike the ball in the kitchen unless the ball bounces in the kitchen first.

I am addicted to pickleball. Almost 3 years ago, I took a class from Mary Desch. I met my BFF in that class, and she is as addicted as I am. I LOVE this sport and can’t get enough!

The game of pickleball, what an adventure. It all started when a bunch of my college friends where gathered one afternoon. It was a warm sunny day and we decided to go play pickleball at Chicken N Pickle. Not knowing what pickleball was I jumped in the car and we headed that way. We got out and this property amazed me, it was so big but almost every inch was covered with something to do. We went to rent paddles and this old guy greeted us and told us what to do. This man being my good friend now, Dan the Man Leddy, explained where to go and how to play. We played for at least 3 hours and I went home thinking how great of a game it was. The next day I went back to my home town way out west and got to see some of my old highschool friends. We were trying to figure out the plan and guess one of the two options, yep CNP to play pickleball. We loaded up the cars and l was off to play pickleball again. We got there and guess who greeted us Dan the Man. While playing there I for the last week had been looking for a job. I ended up talking to Dan about who the manager was. He introduced me to this French guy that I could barley understand. He told me to come back the next day for an interview. Long story short, I ended up getting the job and now I have the pleasure to interact with the best people that come into CNP, the regular pickleballer. You will never find a better place to meet stress free people than around a pickleball court!

I’m still an active competitive tennis player! It’s my serious sport🤣I’ve taught my family to play(driveway play)! I found the sport quite by accident on my own. I came across an interesting net game in a box at TJMAXX & of course had to buy it! I have 4 sons, we’re a very athletic family! I investigated what this game might be & VOILA! So now I’m a tennis player/pickleball player for LIFE️

I found pickleball a couple of years ago and have made so many new friends since. It connects people even more than Zumba does. Most of the friends I’ve made through Zumba are people a lot like me (middle aged women). Pickleball has brought people to my life who I would have become friends with otherwise. Pickleball brings people of all ages and genders together. We have Facebook group consisting of 1500+ people who are so diverse and yet we are all friends because we all have our love for pickleball in common.

Dave J- Chicken N Pickle Founder

In Dec. of 2015, I took a trip to Phoenix to visit a friend. During my stay, I was introduced to pickleball. There were several courts full of people playing this game of which I wasn’t familiar. Although my friend had only recently started playing, he mentioned the many friendships he had already formed with other pickleballers & that he was on the courts 3 or 4 times a week.
Soon I realized that no matter when I walked by the courts there was always a pickleball match in play. That’s when the wheels really started turning. Three things struck me: 1. The courts were always full with other players waiting. 2. They were full of energy & genuine camaraderie. 3. I learned the game in a few hours & was enjoying it.
I returned to KC & my team & I immediately began researching pickleball. We soon learned pickleball was on track to become the fastest-growing sport in America, & I knew we had to have one in our city. Soon after, I found the land for our first Chicken N Pickle location just a block away from my office. I am very fond of North Kansas City. The community, the people & the potential here are everything I could want for a concept like CNP.
When people ask why chicken, I tell them about my favorite place to eat in the Grand Cayman Islands, Chicken! Chicken!. Their wood-roasted chicken concept was the launching point for our menu. I recruited long-time KC restaurateur, Bill Crooks & together, we called on our own networks of industry professionals to assemble our founding team. We’re all from different backgrounds but as a group, we work toward the goal of bringing people together over a delicious, wood-fired rotisserie chicken, a cold beer, & some friendly competition to create unifying bonds that ripple throughout the community.
Our mission is to provide an atmosphere that fosters family, fun, friendship & community. It’s a thrill to see this mission come to life at each new location.
