FREE 30-Day Paddle Test Drive: Our 100% Happy Return Policy

You can return paddles and other merchandise within 30 days of date of purchase. If you are not 100% happy, ship the item back to us and we will refund your money.

We cannot be responsible for packages that are lost, stolen, or incorrectly addressed. All apparel must be in new condition, unworn and unwashed. All Pickleballs must be in their original packaging, new, unmarked, and unused condition to qualify for return. Please allow up to 15 days for your return to be inspected and processed, and for your refund to be issued. Please call with questions.
