Should I buy the cheapest padel possible? Does it really matter?

With the rise in Padel, customers have to be careful! 

Here at we have worked incredibly hard to partner with the brands we have to ensure our customers get a level of quality that we would insist ourselves.

We are seeing 'new' brands pop up daily, offering ridiculously low prices and ludicrous technology claims. Most of these we wouldn't touch with a 10ft pole due to poor quality manufacturing and sub-par materials. 

Often people think "I'm just starting out, what does it matter", but if you wanted to get fit and were going to go for a run, you wouldn't go in flip flops. Yes flip flops are footwear and you might be able to move, but they're not fit for purpose.

At we are of course hear to sell equipment, but importantly we are here to help grow the game and have fun along the way. The only way to do that is with the right equipment. So whilst we could sell £40-£50 Padels all day long, it wouldn't be right, as you, the customer isn't going to enjoy the game and you're more likely to get injuries and not return to as you continue on your padel journey.

When starting out, many players may be tempted to opt for the cheapest padel racket available, but this isn't always the best option. In this blog, we'll explore why the cheapest padel racket isn't always the best choice and what factors to consider when choosing a padel racket.

  1. Quality of Materials: Cheaper padel rackets are often made with lower-quality materials that can affect the performance and durability of the racket. This means that the racket may not have the right balance, weight, or feel for your playing style, leading to less precision and control on the court.

  2. Design and Technology: At, the padel rackets we stock often feature advanced design and technology that can enhance your playing experience. For example, some padel rackets may have a carbon fibre frame, which provides more stability and power, or a unique shape that gives you more control over your shots.

  3. Performance and Comfort: A cheaply produced padel racket may not be designed for comfort and may cause discomfort during play. A good padel racket should feel comfortable in your hand and not cause any pain or discomfort during play.

  4. Support and Warranty: When purchasing through, if your padel has a problem, get in touch! if its a manufacturer fault, we will address it.

  5. Resale Value: Higher-end padel rackets often have a higher resale value and can be sold for a good price if you decide to upgrade or change your equipment in the future.

In conclusion, while the cheapest padel racket may seem like a good option initially, it may not provide the best performance or longevity. When choosing a padel racket, it is important to consider the quality of materials, design and technology, performance and comfort, support and warranty, and resale value. Investing in a good padel racket can greatly enhance your playing experience and help you perform at your best on the court.
