There’s no denying pickleball is everywhere right now. Usually on my morning jog, I pass a few pickleball courts, and even at 7 a.m., people are up and playing. Personally, I don’t play, but that’s about to change. I’ve invested in a new set of paddles and enlisted a friend to teach me.
The ErPils Pickleball Set comes with four paddles, four balls and four cooling towels for when you break a sweat. Plus, it comes with a bag to store it all in and carry to the courts. The paddles feature a super strong nine-ply basswood and a soft, padded grip featuring sweat-wicking ventilation holes.
More than 1,400 Amazon shoppers give the set a five-star rating, saying it’s great for people just starting to play pickleball. (Just to note, other expensive paddles for more experienced players are generally fiberglass.)
“If you want to start playing pickle ball, this set is a great value and works really well!” wrote one reviewer. “We play all the time and they are very durable. Definitely recommend!”
“I got this set because it was cheap and I was just starting pickleball,” wrote another reviewer. “Since I purchased it, I have played with all four paddles of this set 10 separate times, and each time played for about 2 hours. These hold up well, have a great grip, and the balls that come with the set are sturdy. I really love pickleball now and these were great entry-level paddles.”
Some reviewers shared how surprised they were by how much they liked the cooling towels in the set, too.
“The paddles and balls are exactly what you’d expect, but the towels were unexpected to me and really help with playing in the heat!” wrote one person. “Just get them wet and freeze them, then wear them to cool off to play another game!”
If you want to try pickleball out, get an affordable set like this one to test the court. If you like it, you can always stick with these paddles or graduate to the more expensive fiberglass ones. But get the set while it’s 50% off.
