Pickleball Bats

As you can see from the picture, the racket (or padel) is a solid racket that is generally graphite or fibre glass. The stiffness of the padel makes it softer or harder and there are various weights as always. There has been a lot of investment into the technology if this seemingly simple bat. So let us know when you're in the market for one and we can lend you one to try! 

The combined length and width, including any edge guard and end cap, shall not exceed 24 inches (60.96 cm). The paddle length cannot exceed 17 inches (43.18 cm). There is no restriction on paddle thickness.

In other words, pickleball paddles can be a range of widths and lengths, but the total length + the total width, cannot exceed 24 inches. With this in mind, if you opt to use a pickleball paddle with an elongated, longer face, the paddle will have to be narrower than traditional designs to meet regulation criteria.

The majority of pickleball paddles available have a width of between 7 inches (17.78cm) & 8 inches (20.32cm) and a length of 15 inches (38.10cm) - 16 inches (40.64cm). Pickleball paddles within this range offer all-around power, control and balance.

The Same 
But Different

The balls used are perforated plastic with up to 40 holes. The only real difference is that some are designed for indoor use and the others for outdoor use.
