Ideal for beginner Paddle players looking for a long-lasting racket.

What is thermofusion?
This innovation is exclusive to Artengo, Decathlon's Paddle brand. The racket is made from two thermoformed shells that are sealed together around an EVA foam core at a high temperature. This technique makes the racket incredibly resistant to impacts against walls, your partner's racket and even your racket.
Where does Paddle come from?
Paddle emerged in Mexico in the 60s. It soon found its way to Spain and Argentina, and later to all Spanish-speaking South American countries. Paddle is currently the second-most-played sport in Spain, behind soccer, but ahead of tennis. There are eight million players around the world.
What are the rules of Paddle?
Matches are played in teams of two (doubles). Two serves are allowed and must be played underhand, diagonally across the court. One bounce is allowed. The ball must bounce on the floor, and can then hit any part of the court. The ball can be hit against a wall after it has bounced (wall only, not the metal fence). The ball can leave the court after bouncing and be hit back into play from outside the court. The points system is the same as for tennis.
How should you start playing Paddle?
First of all, you should choose fairly slow balls with a large diameter and get yourself a racket that's suited to occasional players. A teardrop-shaped racket is best as it will give you the biggest sweet spot, meaning your balls will be nicely centered and more accurate. Your racket should also be light (between 12 oz and 13.5 oz) to make it easy to swing.
This racket has undergone testing in our TechCenter, labs and Paddle courts.
