The Professional Pickleball Association will not be adopting the following rule changes for professional play at this time:
- The Drop Serve. Rule: 4A8
- COVID Serve or Paddle Swipe Serves. Rule: 7N (we will use 2020 rule: 7.O)
- Let Serves. (2020 Rule 4.O “Let Serves” will be reinstated)
**THIS IS ONLY FOR PROFESSIONAL & SENIOR PROFESSIONAL MATCHES.
We will be doing our due diligence to study, observe and test the 2021 rule changes before they are implemented at the professional level.
We are hitting “pause” so to speak before moving forward.
We have researched to ensure that we are in compliance with the rulebook in using flexibility in implementing these changes.
**ALL AMATEUR/NON-PRO BRACKETS WILL FOLLOW ALL CURRENT 2021 RULES AND IMPLEMENT ALL 2021 CHANGES.
If you have any comments, questions or concerns please reach out to the PPA’s head referee Don Stanley [email protected]
