Pickleball is one of the fastest growing sports in the U.S. If you're interested in the game, you'll need to prepare the right gear. Here's what you need to know about pickleball gear.
The most important piece of gear for pickleball is of course, the paddle. Look for a paddle that is lightweight and easy to control like FitVille Pickleball Paddle. Paddles come in a variety of materials, including wood, fiberglass and graphite. Choose one that feels comfortable and suits your playing style.
Pickleball balls are lightweight with plenty of holes. Look for balls that are USAPA approved, which means they meet the official size and weight requirements precisely for the game.
Pickleball courts are smaller than tennis courts and can be played indoors or outdoors. You can buy a portable net for playing in your backyard, or you can play on a court at other public facility.
Other additional gear to consider is a hat protect your face from the sun, sunglasses (FitVille Polarized Shades) to protect your eyes, and a towel (FitVille Quick Cooling Towel Pack) to keep you cool and dry.
