How to Choose Your Perfect Pickleball Paddle


In A Pickle chooses to carry Selkirk paddles for many reasons but ultimately, you can be sure that you are getting the best value, the best product, and the best warranty in pickleball. 

Here are some tips to help narrow down your choices and guide you to getting the paddle that is best for YOU!

All 3 options are made by Selkirk so we know you are getting a great product for your money. We have broken these down into 3 categories.



The GOOD paddle will be at our lowest price point. Check out our line of SLK Evo 2.0s.

If you are just starting out and don’t have any paddle/racquet background and have no clue what you want or need then a GOOD paddle is going to be all you need. 

When looking at the EVO 2.0s your next choice to make will be whether you want the CONTROL (16mm) thicker paddle or POWER (13mm) thinner option. If you are not sure then we suggest you go with the CONTROL model.



The BETTER paddles are going to cost a little bit more and someone who is newer to the game may or may not notice the difference in performance or feel. Check out the HALO line for a BETTER paddle that won't break the bank.



The BEST paddles are what truly sets Selkirk apart from the rest of the industry. Whether you are looking for the best control, or power, or spin, OR the best of everything you have to check out the Vanguard Power Air line.

If you want a high performing paddle…or are somebody who just has to have the BEST then you'll want to check these out.
