Find the Right Pickleball Paddle for You

With many different styles to choose from, choosing the best pickleball paddle can seem overwhelming. Paddle surfaces are made from composite, fiberglass or graphite, while cores are either polymer, aluminum or nomex. Though all these variables make a difference, here are the most important things to consider before buying a pickleball paddle:
- Weight: Kids and other beginners might prefer a lighter paddle, while more skilled adults might enjoy more power from a heavier design.
- Shape: Do you prefer an elongated paddle with more reach or a square-shaped design with a larger sweet spot?
- Style: Looking good matters, even on the pickleball court. Find a pickleball paddle design that matches your individual style.
