Have you ever cleaned your pickleball paddle? If not, you should because your pickleball paddle can become quite dirty. The grit of your pickleball paddle can capture dirt, which will make your pickleball paddle smooth and less effective at putting spin on the pickleball. As a result, you should clean your pickleball paddle from time to time, so that it plays more “like new” and you have the benefit of the gritty, textured paddle surface.

There are a couple of ways that you can clean your pickleball paddle:

  1. Clean Magic Eraser – My personal preference (which was a tip passed along to me from Senior Pickleball Pro, Steve Kennedy) for cleaning my pickleball paddle is to use a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. Use the Magic Eraser to lightly scrub the dirt away from your paddle surface. Then, wipe your pickleball paddle with a damp cloth. Wipe away any water residue and leave to dry.
  2. Glass Cleaner and a Microfiber Cloth – You can also use glass cleaner and a microfiber or lint-free cloth to clean your pickleball paddle. Spray the glass cleaner into your cloth and lightly scrub the dirt away. Wipe your pickleball paddle clean and leave to dry. To note, be sure to avoid a heavier cleaning solution, as it may leave a residue on your pickleball paddle.

Do not be alarmed if the graphics on your pickleball paddle start to wear. This is normal and simple sign of lots of pickleball play over time.

Also, do not forget to replace your grip on your pickleball paddle from time to time! To learn how to change your pickleball grip, check out Pickler’s pickleball blog on pickleball grips!

Lessons from the Pickleball Court: Referees Are Impactful

by Stacie Townsend

Referees are a part of every sport, and an important part of every sport. Referees are the ones that enforce the rules of the game. They ensure that the players all play by the same set of rules, and instill a sense of confidence in the players and the fans that the right player or team at the end of the game was victorious and that there was no foul play. Learn more on why referees are so impactful to the sport of pickleball!

The “Shake & Bake” is a nickname for a particular set play or strategy in doubles pickleball that is popular amongst aggressive-style pickleball players.
