Lake Sumter Landing on market night there is a pickleball vendor who is a villager and volunteers with pickleball activities so she is knowledgeable.

If you want the very best and they are not that expensive you can get a custom paddle from:
Paul Porel <picklepaulpro@hotmail.com>
He manufactures them locally and fits them to you

You can also buy them on the internet, a little less but then you have to know exactly what you want. The people at Lake Sumter will let you try a paddle out before you buy.

That guy is pushy, and he says his paddles are returnable, but I tried to return one model for one that cost less, and he wouldn't give me the $ until I offered to buy a bag from him. So basically, he will only give you a store credit.

Also, he tends to push one kind of racket. He actually said to me that his wife plays pickle ball all the time and he was sure she was better than I, and she likes such-and-so type of paddle. He totally disregarded what I was telling him I wanted.

The people at LSL will let you sign out a racket and try it out. Their paddles are non returnable, but at least you've played with it.

The people at softball R Game off 466 have a great selection and price. I like the fact they are open 6 days a week and have shoes and everything you need to play the game.

Just went to the softball store to buy a paddle. They had over 20 paddles to choose from. I was confused as to what to buy so the lady suggested I take a few demo paddles to try. I did that and finally found one I liked. They have a chart, which they gave me, with all the information about the paddles. They were very knowledgeable about the paddles and not pushy at all. While I was there someone came in with a paddle they purchased. They did not like the paddle and wanted to exchange it for another paddle. Without hesitation the lady told him to pick another paddle. I would recommend the ladies at the softball store to my friends
