Tips for buying a design racket


Padel rackets are easy to choose because they look cool even if other models would suit your playstyle better. So keep looking until you find a racket that has everything you are looking for.

Right feel

Despite all the talk about gameplay and materials, it won’t work if you don’t like the racket. In our experience, we have learned how important it is to enjoy picking up the racket and stepping out on the court. Brand and design are important factors to consider here.


Style and culture are important factors in design. Design trends for padel equipment seem to be similar to those for furniture, clothing, and other items. In Scandinavia, we find a more minimalist design, while, for instance, in Spain, we find a lot more color.

If you want to fall in love with a nice padel racket, you should not forget about its game features. Do not choose a model solely based on its design. Nevertheless, it is important to like the racket, so do not choose a rack solely based on the specifications either.
