What Should You Look For In A Beginner Pickleball Paddle?
- Wide Body or “traditional” Paddle Face
- Honeycomb core (as opposed to wood)
- Affordable cost
We launched SLK PICKLEBALL to service the next generation of pickleball players with entry-level paddles ranging from $49.99 to $140. While these paddles are considered beginner-level paddles, some of our sponsored players (CJ Klinger) have elected to use these paddles at the pro level!
When starting out, a “traditional” paddle face maximizes the sweet spot which is ideal for beginners. The larger the sweet spot, the easier it is to know where your shot will land, which allows you to make consistent shots. This minimizes your mishits so you can stay in the point longer!
There are several other great shapes with different advantages on the court. Elongated Paddles are a popular option, especially among tennis players. But the “classic” shape serves as a great all-around paddle for beginners.
If you are all in on pickleball and want to go ahead with a high-performance paddle, our AMPED and VANGUARD lines offer advanced technology for beginner to advanced players.
