Pickleball Crew's full guide on How to Score In Pickleball

In pickleball you can only score points on the serve. (The receiving side cannot score a point.) At the start of every serve the person serving will shout out three numbers in doubles (e.g. “5-2-1”) or two numbers in single play. If it’s doubles, the game starts with player on the right side (or even court) will serve to the play who is opposite diagonally. Service then moves to the left side (or odd court).
