2023360Degraded but not cracked ballPassedPassed with editsView Details
2023347Player hit by ballPassedPassed. Editorial changeView Details

2023343Serve DefinitionPassedPassed Editorial changeView Details
2023342Replace "below the wrist" with "excluding the wrist"FailedFailed. There isn't a problem with interpreting this ruleView Details
2023336Scoring guidelines for 3/5 match remaining matchesPassedPassed. This edit was overlooked when 3/5 matches were allowedView Details
2023334Replay Instead of Fault for Service Motion ViolationPassedPassed:View Details
2023326Hinder is not a noun and does not fit the definition in 3.A.15.FailedFailed. Technically this is grammatically correct, but there is no desire to attempt to change it.View Details
2023325Forfeit game scores for 3/5 matchesPassedPassed. This edit was overlooked when 3/5 matches were allowedView Details
2023324Appeals to refereeFailedFailed. The edit is redundant and attempts to address something that isn't an issueView Details
2023323Rules InterpretationFailedFailed. The committee wants the Head Referee to be able have this right, to allow an appeal to be rescinded. Players should also be able to change their mind quickly about their appeal.View Details
2023320Serving Sequence in PickleballFailedFailed. There are already expectations the server has to wait for the receiver to be ready and call the score so that they can hear. Also, that players will accommodate hearing impaired players. It is not appropriate to require this for all play.View Details
2023295Service foot fault wordingPassedPassed. Edited to use 'playing surface' instead of 'court'. Use extension, not extensionsView Details
2023292Center line in the NVZFailedFailed. We are fine with the temporary solution for mini-singles. Definitely would not want a dashed line.View Details
2023291Ordinals to Report ServerFailedFailed. We don't want to change rules for millions of existing players to accommodate new players. Beginners will eventually learn the specifics. Many players use 0-0-Start even today, with no consequence.View Details
2023290All Lines InFailedFailed. Also, technically the way this is written would mean a ball hitting the NVZ sideline would be in.View Details
2023286Something to the effect of better saying the score clearly, slowly, and loudly. . Also, a two second pause between the last number spoken and the beginning of the serve motion. Also the correction of the scoreFailedFailed. Unnecessarily cumbersome. Overkill.View Details
2023285Restriction on weight of paddlesFailedFailed.View Details
2023283Modification of Rule 9CFailedFailed. No. This an integral part of the game.View Details
2023281Line Call RulesFailedFailed. The committed felt that this already an option for playersView Details
2023277Use of the word "OUT" during a volleyFailedFailed. Well known player communication. What other 'out' variations would also be prevented?View Details
2023275Head TargetingFailedFailed. This is part of the game. Wear protection. Difficult to enforce.View Details
2023273Alternate Serve / ScoringFailedFailed. Confusing proposal. Another rally scoring suggestion will be reviewedView Details
2023268Questioning an opponents callPassedPassed: Moved guidance to start of rulebook. There is a concern that any 'should' rule is not enforceable and has no penalty, so this is just guidance.View Details
2023266Remove determination of winner of rally for dead ball ruleFailedFailed. Unnecessary editView Details
