Paddles

My name is Val Drachev and I'm a silver medalist of the 2021 US Open, singles 65+, 4.0. I have learned everything about paddles, in and out, from my experience of making and fixing paddles, and playing pickleball almost every day.

All DBall pickleball paddles are handcrafted by me personally in my workshop. You can choose your paddle from already pre-built ones or build to order your unique paddle, based on your specs, which may include a paddle shape, weight, paddle face(s) color, handle size and profile, over grip tape color. Moreover, you can send me a sketch of your own paddle design and we can discuss how to build it.

I use a polypropylene honeycomb core from Plascore company of Michigan.

Polypropylene skins ( 0.009-0.012″ ) of a variety of color or paint are used to finish the paddle faces. The tennis style handles are made of balsa wood and are wrapped with a tacky, thin over grip tape. The paddles are edgeless and are protected with a thin plastic rim. Once completed, each paddle is personally tested. If it does not meet my standards, I rebuild it again to ensure the quality and performance achieve the highest level.

The paddles are perfect for new & seasoned players at an affordable price, and have the best all-around feel, balance, and performance; from touch drop shots to hard drives and lobs. The major difference between DBall Paddles and others on the market is the ball stays longer on the paddle, enabling more control and spin.

DBall Paddles are tested by 5.0 pro players. David Duncan, Marcin Rozpedski, Scott Tingley, and John Sperling are among some of the high level pro pickleball players who have tested and affirmed the paddle's level of quality and playability.

The DBall pickleball paddles have shipped to 45 states, including Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico,  Canada and New Zealand.

Warranty: DBall pickleball paddles are covered by a limited warranty for defective material and workmanship for 6 months from the date of purchase. Any items may be return within 30 days in a new condition

What is not covered: Damage caused by abuse, user modification and the natural breakdown from extended use are not covered. Hitting the ground with the paddle or a hard object, such as another paddle, may cause damage to the core, resulting in a compromised performance of the paddle, which are not covered under the warranty.

Please note: Due to the edge-less design, this paddle will develop scratches on the edge during play. This is normal wear and is not considered a defect in the product.

The DBall paddles are not USAPA approved, but they meet all USAPA requirements.

It will take  1 or 2 days to build a paddle.  At checkout time you can choose to pay by Credit or Debit card ( select PayPal  as a method of payment) or by check. No need to have or open your PayPal account. Use  a "Special Requests: " window to write your specific requests.

I keep records of all paddles shipped. To find your paddle, go to the "Order Status" menu and locate it by state, paddle shape type, or your name. You will see all photos of your paddle, specs, date of shipping, return policy and warranty.
