Frequently Asked Questions – #1 How to pick a pickleball paddle?

Baby confused by pickleball paddles

How do I pick a paddle? There are so many choices! 

The best way to select a paddle is to try them out! Ask your fellow pickleball players if you can test-drive their paddles. Try various weights and grip sizes. If you find a paddle that feels good and balanced in your hand try to get that paddle’s weight. At PickleballCentral we will hand-weigh paddles to match the weight that you are seeking.

If you don’t have the opportunity to try out other people’s paddles, we do have a wonderful 30-day return policy. You’re free to purchase any of our paddles, try them out for 30 days, and if you then want to keep one paddle and send back the others, we’ll be happy to accommodate. You can also exchange out your current paddle to try another one.

Lastly, take a look at our extensive Pickleball Paddle Guide to get an idea of which paddle might suit your needs and play style best.
