Offbeat Sunday: New Pickleball Terms

A clever post from Jeff Napier at Pickleball Strategy.

Some New Terminology

I posted a query about terminology in the forum section of, and got some interesting responses. I don’t know how legitimate or ‘universal’ these terms may be, but thought you’d enjoy them in any case.

Wrong Garage – A serve that goes into wrong service box

Erne Shot – Normally, you can’t be closer than seven feet from the net when hitting a ball unless it has bounced. However, if you have a ball that’s coming well to one side, you can step right up to the net, as long as you are outside the sideline, and hit the ball without it needing to bounce first. Here’s a video.

Pantry – The area outside the sideline near the center line very close to the net, but outside the kitchen. The area where the Erne shot takes place.

Dairy Queen Server – A person who has only a “soft serve”

Tattooed – Getting hit by a fast pickleball.

Glendaled – Got robbed on a call.

Saggy Rag – A portable net.

Bageled – Did not score one point.

Bagel With Cream Cheese – Did not get to serve, and bageled.
