I’m a beginner. What’s the best padel racket for me?

Padel rackets come in three designs: round, drop-shaped, and diamond-shaped. Constructed from EVA foam material, these rackets feature perforations and boast a shorter, more compact form compared to tennis rackets.

The LTA advise that novices begin with a round racket, as it provides optimal control. Additionally, junior rackets tailored for children are offered, featuring lighter weight and shorter grips for enhanced usability.

When you’re next onsite, please reach out to our coach Antonio or a member of the team and they would be happy to help.
