Vintage Graphite Paddle
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. This is the only paddle that comes in two grip choices. The small grip features a black grip tape with minor cushion. The small grip is recommended for young people or people with small hands. The standard grip, also known as tennis grip or thick grip, is a larger grip. The standard thick grip is the most popular grip size on the Champion Graphite. The thick grip is made by Gamma and is a cushion contour grip that has a raised cord encircling the paddle handle. This Gamma grip can be found on several of the high-end paddles and provides both comfort and durability. The minimalistic paddle is painted with a solid color background and a white screen print on top of a widebody graphite face. This large 8-1/8" face width gives players lots of hitting surface, which beginners love. The reviews prove that the Champion Graphite paddle is definitely a winner in the pickleball community.
