After you have purchased a paddle, you are protected by the warranty of your paddle’s manufacturer. Each manufacturer has their own warranty policies. Please see below the different policies from each manufacturer.

If you believe your paddle has developed a defect within the listed time frame(s), then you can contact the manufacturer to see if they will arrange an exchange.

What’s Covered:

  • Warranties are for manufacturers defects or breakage from normal use. Paddle must have an actual manufacturer defect to be considered for an exchange.
  • Customer must register their paddles after purchase.
  • Paddles are covered for original purchaser (non transferable) with original invoice.

What's Not Covered

  • Paddle normal wear and tear: Normal wear includes faded graphics, small dents or scratches (which don’t affect play) and markings/residues left by pickleballs on the face. You should keep your paddle out of extreme temperatures and humid conditions to prevent early decomposition.
  • Second hand paddles.
  • Abnormally use: improper use, improper maintenance, accident, misuse, negligence, damage, product is used for a purpose for which it is not designed.  Scuffs, marring, abrasion, face separation, exposed graphite core, and chipping as a result of court impact is not covered. If you damage your paddle while hitting the ground, the court floor, smashing it against your thigh, or hitting any object other than a pickleball, then please do not ask for warranty coverage.
  • User modification: Most manufacturers will not take back paddles that have been tampered with (re-glued, grip changed, etc.) or those that have been marked with permanent identification, so if you want to put your name on your paddle, it’s best to use a sticker.
