How to Choose a Pickleball Paddle
From experienced athletes to casual players, your pickleball paddle is one of the most important aspects of your game. In order to choose the best paddle to meet your needs, you need to learn more about what you should be looking for.
While pickleball has some similarities to racquetball and tennis, pickleball paddles differ significantly from the racquets used to play these sports. Pickleball paddles are much smaller and generally lighter than tennis and racquetball racquets. While standard pickleball paddles vary in size, they're usually about 8 inches wide, 15.75 inches long and weigh between 6 to 14 ounces. Pickleball paddles feature a solid paddle rather than the strung surface of a racquet.
Experienced players often know what they want from their paddle because they know which features help them play their best game. For beginners picking their first paddle who aren't sure what kind of player they are, we generally recommend something middle-of-the-road so that you can learn what you like and dislike without investing too heavily in something that may not be the right fit.
Those hoping to play in official pickleball competitions will need pro pickleball paddles that are in line with the USAPA equipment standards.
Things to Consider Before Purchasing a Pickleball Paddle
Pickleball has been steadily gaining popularity over the past few years, and along with that popularity, we've seen strides in the quality and quantity of equipment available. Pickleball paddles are now available in a huge range of sizes and options that work differently for each player. To determine which paddle is best for you, you'll need to consider several variables.
The three most important factors to consider when purchasing a pickleball paddle are:
- Weight: The weight of your pickleball paddle determines how it feels and what type of action you can achieve on the court. A lighter paddle will give you more control and better maneuverability while putting less stress on your joints. A heavier paddle, on the other hand, will give you more power and allow you to hit the ball deep.
- Paddle material: The materials used to construct a paddle can affect its weight and how the ball plays off its surface. Common materials include wood, polymer, fiberglass, Nomex, aluminum, carbon fiber and graphite. Wood paddles are generally the heaviest and least expensive, while graphite pickleball paddles are the lightest and most expensive.
- Grip size: Choose a paddle with the correct grip circumference for your hand. A smaller grip allows more wrist action, while a larger grip can increase stability. Overgrips and wraps can also help create a custom grip circumference.
