Pickleball 411: Is The Ball In or Out? – Line Call Rule Clarified

In this episode of Pickleball 411, we focus on line calls and determining if a ball is in or out.  Using some clear motion graphics, our host, Rusty Howes, will walk us through the elements of the rule itself: Court Lines, Compression and Point of Contact.

We hope this short video will help clarify some of the discussion points of this part of the game and make line calling a little easier.
