General FAQs

Why are you called Paddle Tap and the "High 5" of Pickleball?

We noticed early on in the sport of Pickleball that players after every great point (or tough one) would “tap" their paddles together and say "Let's Go" or "Come on". It's Pickleball's equivalent of giving your teammate a "High 5". We love the energy and fun the sport of Pickleball brings to all players of all ages and named our company after pickleball's most celebrated moments. Let's Paddle Tap!


Paddle Tap Pickleball caters to fun, focused, and fiercely competitive pickleballers. Paddle Tap Pickleball is committed to bringing premiere quality pickleball paddles to players ready to advance on-court performance by delivering increased “SPS” stability, power, and spin. We believe our paddles are top notched and encourage you to try one.  

How long should my paddle last?

This is a tough one because it depends on a couple of key factors. First, how often to you play? Second, how well do you take care of your paddle? We have customers that can play with a paddle for a couple of years and we have customers that want a new paddle every 6 or 8 months.

Now that I own a High Performance Paddle Tap pickleball paddle, how do I treat it with care?

First, like people, paddles can be picky about extreme heat and extremely cold temperatures. Avoid leaving your paddle in your car for extended periods of time. Too many paddles get damaged this way. Second: Be nice to your paddle. Clean it once in a while with a gentle lint-free towel or cloth. Lastly, avoid being mean to your paddle. Smacking your paddle on your hip or throwing it on the ground after a tough point is never a good thing so please be nice to your new investment.
