What should you look for in a beginner pickleball set?

The three things you should look for in a beginner pickleball paddle set are:

  • Affordability
  • Durability
  • Honeycomb core made with materials other than wood

What type of pickleball paddle set is best for beginners?

For beginner pickleball players, you will be more comfortable and strike the ball more consistently with a honeycomb core paddle as opposed to wood. Wooden paddles almost always have small sweet spot and a smaller total surface area making it difficult to strike the ball consistently.

Honeycomb core paddles "absorb" the ball and give you more control. You will also want a traditional paddle face that is wider, which is ideal for beginners because it gives you the largest sweet spot.

What should I pay for a beginner pickleball paddle set?

It is understandable if you are just starting out in pickleball that you do not necessarily want to spend a large amount of money on pickleball paddles. But there is also a danger of going too cheap. You are better off spending 10-20 extra bucks to purchase a paddle that will last you years than a wooden paddle that breaks in a couple of weeks.

Paddle sets allow you to save on the price per paddle and supply you with everything you need to head to the courts.
