This durable wooden paddle is designed for beginners and is a favorite with schools, community groups, and other large organizations. The paddle is made from honey-colored white maple, and seven-ply construction makes it extremely durable. The polyurethane grip wicks moisture, keeping hands dry throughout the game. The grip is also cushioned for a comfortable, soft feel. A wrist string is attached to the end of the handle for control during hits and serves and to keep the paddle from flying across the room. USAPA approved. 15 ½”L x 7”W; 9-1/2 to 10-1/2 oz. Grip circumference is 4-1/4".
