FAQ

The choice is individual and depends on your style of playing and your level. There are three different types of padel rackets, as follows:

  • Round: This is a good option for beginners, because it’s easy to manoeuvre and very forgiving for less perfect strikes. The round shape is also an option for someone more experienced who is looking for more precision and control whilst playing.
  • Diamond-shaped: This type suits those with good technique and accuracy, and a player who is looking for more force in their volleys. The shape makes the racket more difficult to manoeuvre, and it’s not as forgiving as the round racket.
  • Drop-shaped: A drop-shaped racket is for those who consider themselves somewhere between the two descriptions above. It’s a racket that suits an all-round game and for those who want a mix of control and speed.

Apart from the shape of the racket, there are a few more specifications that can be good to know about when selecting your racket:

  1. A padel racket weighs around 340 and 400 grams; the lighter models don’t weigh over 355 grams. If you are a beginner, or just play for fun, the lighter racket is recommended because it’s easier to manoeuvre. It’s also better for your wrists and elbows in the long run. Remember that as you improve and the intensity of your game develops, you can switch to a heavier racket, which will give you more possibilities in the game.
  2. Another factor to take into account when making your choice is the thickness of the racket. Most padel rackets are 36 mm or 38 mm, where the latter is more common. A thinner racket is usually easier to play with, which can be good to consider as a beginner.
  3. The sweet spot of the racket affects your game. The sweet spot can be soft or hard, where the soft spot gives more speed and less control, and the hard spot does the opposite.

Imagine you are gripping a hammer when holding your padel racket. This makes the racket stable in your hand whilst your wrist is kept relatively straight. This ensures a good strike for both backhand and forehand without having to change your grip.
