Pickleball Paddles Available at Rincon

The store here at Rincon Country West RV Resort has a limited selection of pickleball paddles for sale, from Peter Singleton Paddles, now that it has opened for business for the winter season.  There are 4 different models available and pictured below are three of them.

The Singleton paddles are made in London, Ontario by Peter Singleton, who with his wife Susan has stayed here at Rincon, and all models have been approved for use in tournaments by the USAPA.  

A feature of all Singleton paddles is that they are edgeless, as the moulded edge is built into the paddle, and does not overlap the face of the paddle as many of the competitive paddles do.  This means that the face size of the paddle is all usable, giving more hitting area.  As well, all are made of carbon/graphite and have proven to be durable under regular use.

There is the T-Bolt that I personally use which is designed to be fast and maneuverable, due to its smaller size but has a large sweet spot in the center.

There is also a Big Boy which is the classic paddle shape and maximum size for competition.

Another model is the Lightning, which is longer than most paddles to get at those shots that are just out of reach.  The leverage point of this paddle also adds power to shots.

The newest model, not pictured above is the Spitfire, which Peter named in honor of my father who flew Spitfires in WWII.  It is a great paddle with characteristics of the T-Bolt in a new, clean shape.

All are for sale in the store here for $79.95.  This compares to paddles on sale at Sports Authority on Irvington, where prices range from $89.99 to $109.99.  

These paddles are the same models as we have available for demonstration purposes, and for new players at the courts.  If you are in the market for a new or a first paddle, and wish to try before buying see one of us at the courts and borrow one for a morning.
