In pickleball, the kitchen is a familiar term for the non volley zone. This is an area of the court that is 7 feet away from both sides of the net and extends to each sideline. Non-Valley or Kitchen area zone where no player can hit volleys from.

All volleys must be initiated outside the non-volley zone. If you are feet, anything you’re wearing, or anything that is attached to you (glasses, hat, extra ball in your pocket, hand) touches the non-volley line after volleying the ball; it is a fault.

If your forward momentum causes you to fall or step into the kitchen after volleying a shot, it is a fault. You may step into the kitchen BEFORE or AFTER any shot where the ball bounces.
