Vintage Champion 1.0 Graphite Pickleball Paddle

The Champion Graphite Pickleball Paddle by Pickleball Inc. is our most popular paddle. It was one of the original honeycomb paddles and has set the standard for paddle design for several decades. This paddle is perfect for many players and is a true classic. With its ideal face shape, sturdy edge guard and quality construction, you can't go wrong with a Graphite Champion paddle.

This is the only paddle that comes in two grip choices. The small grip features a black grip tape with minor cushion. The small grip is recommended for young people or people with small hands. The standard grip, also known as tennis grip or thick grip, is a larger grip. The standard thick grip is the most popular grip size on the Champion Graphite. The thick grip is made by Gamma and is a cushion contour grip that has a raised cord encircling the paddle handle. This Gamma grip can be found on several of the high-end paddles and provides both comfort and durability.

The minimalistic paddle is painted with a solid color background and a white screen print on top of a widebody graphite face. This large 8-1/8” face width gives players lots of hitting surface, which beginners love. The reviews prove that the Champion Graphite paddle is definitely a winner in the pickleball community.

Available in only blue, black, red and green. Choose from thin or thick grip style. Click here to see the NEW and improved Champion Graphite Paddle.

Good paddle November 7, 2017
Reviewer: Ann from CT  
I just got this paddle so I've only used it a few times but I am happy with it. I like the grip and I've noticed my play is improving with it.

Newbie October 30, 2017
Reviewer: PS from Kissimmee, FL United States  
After searching for a paddle with a smaller, square grip, I found this site.  As a new player, I had tried several paddles as loaners, none of which I liked mainly because the grips were so large.  Pickleball Central was very easy to navigate and their descriptions were much more comprehensive.  The 30 day test drive was also a factor but I will not be returning my paddle.

Vintage Chanpion Paddle October 22, 2017
Reviewer: Siri Borg from Bloomingburg, NY United States  
First - VERY fast shipping.  I received my paddle from across the USA in four days from order to in my hand. I chose the Vintage Champion because I wanted the option of grip size.  The paddle is great.
