Lightest Padel Racket – Adidas RX20 Light Padel Racket

Calling all novices back to the padel court..we have another great option for you!  rackets generally weigh between 330g and 385 g. A lighter racket, such as the Adidas RX20 Light Padel Racket,  is easier to use and gives you more control of your strokes. If you suffer from tennis elbow, a more light-weight racket is a more ideal  option since it is easier on the joints. However, you may find lighter options have a premium due to the more advanced materials they have used to create these products.. Also, remember to  consider how long you may be playing for at a time and if you want to prioritise more power or agility over the weight of your equipment. 

Best Mid Range Racket – Head Evo Sanyo Padel Racket

With nearly 50 5 Star reviews and based on the ‘magician’ Sanyo Gutiérrez’s very own model, at £48.99 the Head Evo Sanyo Padel Racket is our top choice to get you started in padel. Whether you’re curious about the sport and want to get started or have played with a friend’s l racket already, try out the Evo Sanyo and prepare to be hooked! It has a larger sweet spot and the soft rubber makes  it all the more comfortable. . The carbon frame is reinforced with Innegra technology for greater power and fewer vibrations.
