Worse for me is people that finish their game on the next court, then walk through yours in the middle of a point instead of at least waiting until the point you're playing ends.
I really shouldn't complain about etiquette in PB because for the most part, there isn't any.
 
Yeah. Not quite sure why there's a lack of court etiquette in PB vs tennis. Examples where I've seen this:

-if you're not sure a ball is in you give the point to your opponent (tennis). if you're not sure a ball is in, play a let (pb)
-lot more talking (that's not really relative to the game) during points (pb)
-people crossing your court or picking up a stray ball in/near your court while a point is being played (pb)
-people yelling "out" instead of "no" or "let it go" (pb). I always think they're calling the ball out instead of telling their partner they think the ball is going out. (this one is completely condoned by the USAP)

With that all said, I do find pb players much more mellow than tennis players. I've had way more arguments/debates against tennis players and find pb in general much more relaxed.

Lol. Just drive the ball near him. They'll eventually learn not to walk through the court. Esp during the middle of a point. Most tennis players wouldn't even walk from behind until after the point is done. I don't even do it if they're just rallying

There is no etiquette in pBall.
They don't know, they don't care.
Seen a 4some walk thru one at a time, spaced 30' apart, non stop chatting...

Right. The other day I was playing pb and a ball from the next court rolled over to mine…of course I stopped play, my opponent went nuts. Pb has no decurum

Funny thing is.....seems adults have no etiquette.
At least the 13 year olds say "thanks" when you toss them their ball.
Adults never do, unless they are 5.0 level players.
