Perfect Pickleball Paddle for Kids

At ONIX Pickleball, we offer all different types of pickleball paddles for every type of player, no matter the age. We also offer a pickleball paddle made specifically for kids, so they don’t miss out on the fun, exercise opportunities, and they can continue to learn the sport over time. It’s important when children are young and learning the game, to celebrate the smaller wins and keep the environment light and with little to no pressure. Remember that they are just beginning the sport as you once were and they will learn to love it in no time! Pickleball is known for being the perfect sport for all ages; so we are sure they will carry the tips and tricks along with the memories of their first paddle with them forever. Playing pickleball helps excel physical and mental health, while also helping create friendships and strategy, communication, focus, and teamwork skills.

Some important tips to remember for your child when you decide to start them out on the game of pickleball:

  1. Create a safe and fun pickleball space; keep things lighthearted and not too competitive as they begin to learn the game.
  2. Support them as they learn and motivate determined yet friendly pickleball play.

The ONIX Z Junior Pickleball Paddle is an addition to our line of Z series pickleball paddles, one of the most popular series we offer. The Z Junior paddle is great for junior players entering the sport and learning the game due to its balanced performance and lightweight, reduced size. Another benefit of the Z Junior Pickleball Paddle is its smaller grip size. We know that young players have smaller hands, and a paddle with a grip that is too large can hinder their performance. This smaller grip size provides a comfortable and secure hold for young players, allowing them to focus on their technique and shots.

The Z JR paddle is also available in multiple different colors – pink, yellow, orange, and blue. If you're in the market for a high-quality paddle that will enhance your child's pickleball experience, you've come to the right place.
