Take this pickleball paddle quiz to find Your Next paddle

Whether you’re an experienced pickleball player or a beginner, you, no doubt, want to play and compete with the best pickleball paddle – one that complements and enhances your skills on the pickleball court.

With hundreds of paddles on the market (and new ones coming on the scene almost daily), how do you pick the right pickleball paddle that best suits your game?

We want to help you find the best paddle for your game! Fortunately, leading pickleball retailer, Pickleball Central, has developed a 6-question quiz to help you find your ideal paddle. And it’s pretty slick!

Paddle Finder Quiz Questions

The 6-question, Pickleball Central Paddle Quiz only takes about 60 seconds to complete. The first question addresses your skill level – Beginner, Intermediate or Advanced.

Once you answer this initial question, additional questions are presented, dependent upon how you answered the skill level question. These questions may include:

  • How often do you play?
  • What other sports have you played?
  • What’s important to you when you play?
  • What paddle shape do you prefer?
  • What brands do you prefer?
  • What feel do you want when you hit the ball?
  • What budget are you trying to stay within?
  • Do you care about the look and style of the paddle?

Drum Roll Please… The Results

Once you answer the online questions, you are matched with paddles that closely mirror your personal “requirements” and player profile, leveraging recommendations from pickleball experts and pros.

Those that complete the survey will be shown a brief overview of paddle recommendations with corresponding percentages that show how closely each recommended paddle meets your requirements.

If a paddle does not meet each of your personal “requirements,” you will then need to determine if you can (or cannot) live without it. If you cannot, then you can select a different paddle that more closely meets your needs.

If you are asked about preferred brands, the results will, indeed, include paddles from your preferred brand. The results will, however, not be limited solely to your preferred brand as they will also include paddles from other brands that may also meet your needs.

If you want to change your quiz answers at any time, you can certainly do so. By changing answers to the quiz questions you will be able to see how the paddle recommendations change.

In addition to displaying your results online, you are also presented with the option of providing your email address and having your results emailed to you.

Final Thoughts on Finding the Best Paddle for You

As always, a paddle that makes sense for one person, may not be the best option for you and your playing style. The best paddle for you may simply come down to personal preference. If you are given the opportunity to demo a paddle at your local club or facility, do so. You can also ask to borrow a friend’s paddle to test drive it before buying it.

Or better, yet, purchase thru Pickleball Central as they give you 30-days to test drive any paddle. If you are not completely satisfied, simply return it within 30 days for a full refund (does not apply to Gearbox brand paddles, used paddles, or paddles that have been personalized).

Go ahead and give the quiz a try! See you on the courts!
