Rough Guide to Skill Ratings

The Paddle

A pickleball paddle is essential to playing the game! Paddles come in a huge variety of styles and price points. If you don’t know where to start when selecting a paddle, we have your back! Find a beginner’s guide to paddles in the next section.

Appropriate Footwear

The shoes you wear on the court make all the difference. Please select the appropriate footwear when choosing to play pickleball. Want to look for a shoe that provides adequate support and cushion to compensate for the active nature of this sport. Typical sneakers often do not provide this for the average player and can lead to an increased chance of injury. We want you to be on the court for a long time with us, so please make sure you have shoes designed for racket sports when you gear up!
