Pickleball Q&As

Is it required that the score is announced before a serve?

I'm used to announce the full score 5 - 2 - 2 before I serve the ball. Some players either do not announce the score at all before they serve the ball or say some variation of the score, like, 5 - 2 or in some cases, when their partner just missed the serve they omit the score altogether and just announce the server on 2.
4.A.1. The entire score must be called before the ball is served.
