Let's say you prefer your forehands on the outside. When you find yourself in the less advantageous position with your forehands to the middle and you are receiving the serve, you don't need to remain that way. Rule 5.B.9 of the International Federation of Pickleball states, "The receiver’s partner may stand anywhere on or off the court." So how does this apply?
Here's an example:
It's right-handed Rita's turn to receive the serve, and she's in the left court (see the diagram). Instead of standing near the non-volley zone line in the right court, left-handed Liz stands outside the court to the left of Rita (this is known as "stacking"). After Rita hits the ball, she will move to the right court, and Liz will take Rita's spot in the left court. This way, both partners will have their forehands to the outside for this rally.
