“Hi, I’m new to pickleball and need a paddle. What paddle should I choose?” This is our most common question from new customers. They love pickleball already and want to make sure and get a good first paddle. What should they choose?
Here’s what we say:
Go with a classic design. Your first paddle should have a standard pickleball paddle shape. This means something that is approximately 7 ¾ – 8 inches wide and 15 ½ – 15 ¾ inches long. You can try out specialty paddles once you have a great classic paddle in your bag.
