Places to Play
For local places to play, you can check out the La Crosse Pickleball page which has updated information on where to play:
Go to the websites of paddle dealers:
Engage, Onix, Selkirk, Paddletek, Wolfe, Pro-Lite, TOPP, HEAD, Gamma, Wilson, Manta, Patriot Pride, Aero, River Styx, Gear Box
Recommended balls for outdoor and indoor play:
Indoor: Onix Pure 2 indoor
Outdoor: Onix Fuse outdoor
These balls are recommended for their durability as they do not crack as easily and retain roundness. In other words, more bang – or dinking – for your buck! The pros choose Dura 40 and Franklin X40 balls because they do not bounce as high as Onix balls which allows for a better third shot drop.
Pickleball Caddy – a basket designed to pick up balls for you and saves your back from leaning over.
Pickleball Tutor – a machine that feeds you balls for practice.
Pickleball Simon – a machine that feeds you balls for practice.
Pickleball Channel – a website full of everything Pickleball, from the history of Pickleball, to “how to” videos, places to play and more!
