3.0 Portable Pickleball Net System


No pickleball court? No worries. In a gym, on a tennis court, or just setting up in the street, this is our go-to portable net. It's durable, assembly is straight-forward, and the bag is properly oversized — it won't be like re-stuffing a tent. Erne Tip: Grab a box of chalk and a tape measure if you’re starting from scratch. Painter’s tape also works well if you’re in a gym.

Kinetic Ovation Flight


Style : control

If you've suffered from tennis elbow, this is the paddle for you. It's lightweight and maneuverable, and will generate high ball speed without a massive swing. The oval shape will also resonate well with tennis players.

Pro Graphite


Skill : Advanced

Style : power

Electrum claims to be the Apple of paddles. We wouldn't go that far, but their signature gritty surface makes this paddle ideal for advanced players who want to pick apart their opponents with spin and power. These paddles also feature a minimalist matte black aesthetic, if that's your thing.

Encore MX 6.0

Style : Control

This advanced paddle is ideal for ex-tennis players, featuring a longer face and handle to extend reach and generate power. With the MX 6.0, players can expect surgical precision with every shot.

Tempest Wave Pro


Skill : Advanced

This paddle is for advanced players who love to dink and want every shot to feel smooth, like cutting butter with a hot knife. The Tempest Wave Pro is built for touch and control around the net without sacrificing much power.
