The Classic Legacy Composite Pickleball Paddle was inspired in its name by the birthplace of pickleball in 1965, Bainbridge Island in Washington State. This paddle has an image of Bainbridge Island, WA, the birthplace of pickleball. This paddle has one of the smoothest fiberglass faces, with little-to-no texture. Internally, the Nomex honeycomb core provides durability for lots of pickleball playing.
The Classic Legacy Paddle has one of the largest hitting surfaces currently on the market. It has one of the longest overall lengths of 15-3/4” from top to bottom as well as a wide width of 8-1/8”. This paddle also has a shorter handle, measuring 5” in length. When the long length is combined with a stout handle and a wide face, the face achieves the largest possible size. The weight range for this paddle is from 7.6 to 8.5 ounces, which is an ideal weight for many players. This paddle has a medium-sized grip.
The Classic Legacy Pickleball Paddle is popular among highly competitive players.
Available in the following colors:Green, Blue, Red, Black
Here's a transcript of the video: Hi, what’s your name?
I’m Alex Hamner. I’m from Carlsbad, California, which is in San Diego County.
So, Alex I know that you’re one of the world’s best pickleball players and that you have many championships under your belt. Can you tell me of some of the wins that you have?
Well, in doubles I won the National tournament four times in a row. I’ve won the regular open singles once and the senior open singles once. I’ve also won Tournament of Champions in doubles twice and singles and Grand Canyon Games and couple of other tournaments but those are the major ones. Here at the US OPEN I have won a gold medal in the Mixed Doubles 30+ and I got bronze in the Pro Women’s Doubles and I’m in the bronze bracket right now for Mixed Doubles.
Congratulation, that’s really impressive
So what paddle are you using at the US OPEN?
I’m using the Legacy Paddle, which Pickleball Inc. makes. I’ve used it for about probably 4 ½ years, and I really like it. It’s got a lot of power on it, and I think maybe a lot of people have trouble controlling the touch but I don’t so I hit great drop shots and dinks and I can still rip the ball and that works for me so that’s the paddle I’ve been using. I’ve had some success.
Alex, thank you so much for your time and good luck today.
PickleballCentral, you rock!
Here is a transcript of the video:
I’m Jeannie Brennan and I am from Bend, Oregon but I live here in Festival in the winter. And I bought this paddle this summer, a Legacy because I took a very unscientific poll of what the big girls were using and a larger number were using the Legacy than any other paddle and so I went out and bought it and played a tournament the next day and I won. I won! So, I’m happy with it. I like it. It hits hard, it has a lot of power and I appreciate that. My short game might not be as good, but I do like the power. I am happy with the power. It’s good.
Thank you so much.
Here is a transcript of the video:
So, could you introduce yourself?
I want to try so many type of paddle, but the Legacy is very powerful, very powerful. And I can, I can feel it, just exactly what I’m playing and so, I think this is very best, very best.
So, could you tell us your name?
Yes, MJ Shin, yeah.
And, what is this around your neck?
What is this, this?
Uh, a bronze medal! Bronze medal!
