The Champion Graphite Pickleball Paddle by Pickleball Inc. is our most popular paddle. It was one of the original honeycomb paddles and has set the standard for paddle design for several decades. This paddle is perfect for many players and is a true classic. With its ideal face shape, sturdy edge guard and quality construction, you can't go wrong with a Graphite Champion paddle. The new redesigned version of this paddle now comes in one pleasing grip size. The Champion Graphite Pickleball Paddle now features a lower profile edgeguard providing less chance of mis-hits off the edge. The redesigned graphic is a vibrant solid color, with layers of criss-crossing texture in a matching hue. CHAMPION SERIES reads across the top of the face, with "GRAPHITE" located in the lower corner. This large 8-1/8" face width gives players lots of hitting surface, which beginners love.
