Pickleball equipment required:
A Pickleball Paddle
Pickleball paddles, similar to other sporting equipment, can be made up of different types of materials that do different things. Some manufacturers make paddles with plastic cores make them with aluminum cores. Others cover their paddles with fiberglass while some finish it with graphite.
Net and Balls
You will also need a net and a pickleball. The ball is unique, with holes through it like a whiffle ball. Different ball models are intended for indoor and outdoor play. Balls come in several colors, including orange, white, yellow and green.
Comfortable court shoes are a must; sneakers or running shoes do not supply the right kind of support for the side-to-side action inherent in pickleball. Open shoes, hiking boots, running shoes and swim shoes are not suitable for pickleball. A lot of people will start playing pickleball with their running shoes because it’s the most common type of sports shoe and it’s the most convenient, but this can be a disastrous choice. To avoid injury in pickleball, you will need sturdier shoes.
You can wear just about anything comfortable and appropriate for the climate: athletic shorts, gym pants, t-shirts, etc.
