Nets and Pickleballs
You will also need a net and a pickleball. The ball is unique, with holes through it like a whiffle ball. Different ball models are intended for indoor and outdoor play. Balls come in several colors, including orange, white, yellow and green.
If you would like to practice your pickleball technique by hitting against a wall, you can purchase one or two in our shop and they will be delivered to you at an Avalon playing venue.
Pickleball shoes are actually much more important than your paddle!
Wearing good court shoes can lessen the chances of injury. Sneakers or running shoes do not supply the right kind of support for the side-to-side action inherent in pickleball. Open shoes, hiking boots, running shoes and swim shoes are most definitely not suitable for pickleball. A lot of people will start playing pickleball with their running shoes because it’s the most common type of sports shoe and it’s the most convenient, but this can be a disastrous choice. To avoid injury in pickleball, you will need sturdier shoes.
Because pickleball being such a new sport in Australia, it is virtually impossible to find a pair of shoes made especially for pickleball. A well-fitting pair of tennis shoes is the best option for outdoor play and volleyball or badminton shoes for indoor play.
You can wear just about anything comfortable and appropriate for the climate: athletic shorts, gym pants, t-shirts, etc. However, your pickleball clothes should fit well and yet allow for unrestricted movement. Clothes that are too tight may limit your swing, while those that are too loose could interfere with your ability to move quickly around the court. Long dresses are definitely NOT ALLOWED! They are dangerous as you could easily trip and seriously injure yourself.
