  • What is Pickleball?
    Pickleball is a paddle and ball sport played on a court with a net, similar to tennis. The court is around the size of a badminton court, the paddle is slightly bigger than table tennis paddle, and the ball is similar to a wiffle ball. The rules range from double bounce, staying out of the non-volley zone, only getting points on your serve. Overall it is a family game for all ages and sizes where technique is less of a factor and cardio is guaranteed without you even noticing it.
  • What is the best way to care for my paddle?
    Paddle care is very important. Follow these easy steps to add longevity to your pickleball paddle: Don't leave your paddle in your car. The heat (or cold) is not good for your paddle. If you are inside, make sure your paddle is too. Wipe your paddle with a damp cloth to clean it after every game. Sweat and dirt can layer up over time. But do not use harsh soaps or chemicals. Replace your grip once it gets tacky or slippery. If you play more than 3 times a week you might have to replace your grip once a month. Put edge guard protection tape on the top edge of your paddle to prevent scratch marks and damage on your paddle edge. Don't lean on your paddle when picking up balls. Your paddle is not meant to take weight and scrape after balls. Rather bend and pick it up by hand or get a pickleball picker-upper (sold by Dinky Sports) to save your paddle, knees and back. Rather high-five with your partner or opponents than hitting your paddles together, it can damage the honeycomb core inside the paddle. Watch what you keep in your pickleball paddle bag. Objects like keys and coins can scratch your paddle.

  • What is the difference between a 13mm and 16mm paddle?
    The inner core of the paddle is manufactured in different thicknesses, the thicker the paddle, the more it will absorb the ball's energy. If a paddle comes in 13mm and 16mm thicknesses, 13mm will be the “power”, spin and all-round paddle while the 16mm will be “control” paddle having a larger sweetspot but producing less spin on the ball.
  • How long does it take for the package to reach my door?
    This is a difficult question as we rely on outsourced courier services, mainly PUDO and Courier Guy. We try to get it to you as soon as possible but on average it takes 2-5 days after being shipped and longer to outlaying areas. If we have the product in stock, we ship it as soon as the payment reflects into our bank account. If the product is out of stock we order it from our suppliers as soon as payment is confirmed and have to wait for them to send us the stock, this could cause a delay in the order taking 10-15 working days. If you reside in Pretoria, pick-up is available from Waverley Tennis Club with prior arrangement.
  • What does USAPA Approved mean?
    The USA Pickleball Association has a set standard and specifications for all pickleball equipment. This ensures fair play and consistency. Equipment that passes the test and meets the requirements is certified and given a code, and suppliers get permission to use the USAPA-approved logo on their products. Our Dinky Seamless Competition balls have a USAPA certificate as do the Panel Sound paddles. The USAPA-approved logo can be found printed close to the handle of the paddle. In most cases, if you do not have a USAPA-approved paddle, you cannot play in tournaments or leagues. A list of approved paddles as well as a list of banned/illegal paddles can be found on their website.
