Let’s Play Pickleball!

Pickleball is all the rage, but did you know cool gear exists, too? Play in style with these pickleballer-approved items.

Old guard Selkirk Sport and relative newcomer JOOLA are the paddle brands most of the pros play with. Both offer numerous models; of course, grip size and feel will help you make the right decision. There are lots of other brands, too, and for the casual player, many other good choices. The question of materials is easy: get graphite!;

Pick the right Paddle.


Unless you’re a touring pro, you really don’t need that big of a bag. One of my favorites is a simple sling bag that will hold your paddle, balls, wallet, keys, and all the other necessities. Keep it simple and move it around the car, home, and court with a sling bag from JOOLA. They offer several options, so do some shopping and have some fun.


The pickleball revolution is very much alive, and there are lots of places to play, but if you’re looking for that country club feel (who isn’t?), then look at Spare Time Sports Clubs. They offer special membership pricing for pickleball players at Johnson Ranch Sports Club in Roseville, Broadstone Sports Club in Folsom, and Gold River Sports Club. Dink to your hearts delight!
