Default Pickle Ball Time!

I just bought a racket on Ebay. It is a Pickelball Classic Lite I got for $25 including freight! I'm starting to go to a class here in preparation for my arrival at Mulberry starting the first! I've been told to stay out of the kitchen!

It you want to practice some time in the evening or late afternoon I'll try to be available. Only go into the kitchen at lunch time lot of good a
nd nice players at Mulberry should fit right in on the south side. The north side the dark side they play for blood over there. Better wait till you get your vampires teeth before you venture over there

As far as the paddle it's all want you get use to playing with and after you practice/play get feel for touch, form, and how the ball reacts off your strokes.

Start out on the mulberry lane street side. Then work your way to the CR42 street side. Either side great bunch of people up there!

You probably wasted 25 Bucks. You should have started with around a 65 buck paddle - available at LSL vendor night or Markets of Marion.

I doubt the price of paddle makes difference. It'swhat you get use to. I prefer heavier paddle. Most of us go through two or three before we find one we like

Why ?

NOBODY plays with a paddle that cheap. I have two $35 paddles I keep in my bag for newbies to use if they need one, but I have never seen anybody other than newbies use similar paddles. I have never seen a $25 paddle.

Pickleball classes are offered at several of the rec centers. Instructors are residents who are experienced players and volunteer there time to help others learn the game. My wife and I have complete Pickleball 101 and 102. If you are new to the game, I recommend signing up for these classes.
