MATERIALS
High-end paddles are typically made of materials such as fiberglass, carbon fiber, or graphite, while lower-end paddles use materials like aluminum or wood. High-quality materials provide better performance, durability, and control, which makes them more desirable to dedicated pickleball players.

SHAPE
Different shapes of pickleball paddles serve different purposes and are designed to cater to players' unique playing styles. For example, paddles with traditional, wider faces are great for beginners or players who want more forgiveness on off-center hits and additional control. More narrow, elongated shaped paddles give you additional reach and leverage for extra power & spin.

CONSTRUCTION
The construction method of a paddle can affect its cost due to the use of specialized technology, equipment, and materials, as well as the level of precision and expertise required. For example, a carbon fiber paddle may require complex layup techniques and costly molds, while a wooden paddle involves a much simpler process and does not produce a paddle that plays as effectively.

What is Pickleball?

Pickleball, at its core, is a fun and exciting indoor/outdoor sport that combines elements of Tennis, Badminton, and Ping Pong. The game is played on a court the size of a Badminton court, with a low net similar to Tennis, and with what looks like an oversized ping pong paddle and a wiffle ball. Pickleball is currently the nation's fastest growing sport with over 4.8 million players in 2021 (up 14.8% over 2020) and an estimated 66 new locations to play pickleball EVERY MONTH.

Whether you are a beginner or professional, Selkirk is singularly focused in growing and supporting pickleball and its players! Here are a few resources for getting started playing pickleball!
