Champion Graphite 2.0 Pickleball Paddle

The Champion Graphite 2.0 Pickleball Paddle by Pickleball Inc. is popular for a reason. It had one of the first honeycomb cores and has set the standard in paddle design for several decades. This paddle is great for players of all skill levels thanks to its balanced design and is a true classic. With its ideal face shape, sturdy edge guard and quality construction, you can't go wrong.

The newly redesigned version of this paddle now comes in a small grip size and has an updated face, treated to feel sturdier and stay vibrant even after sun exposure. The Champion Graphite 2.0 Pickleball Paddle now features a lower profile edge guard providing less chance of mis-hits off the edge.

The redesigned graphic is a vibrant solid color, with layers of criss-crossing texture in a matching hue. CHAMPION SERIES 2.0 reads across the top of the face, with ďGRAPHITEĒ located in the lower corner. This large 8-1/8Ē 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 the following colors: Fire Red, Solar Orange, Aurora Green

Transcript of Video #1 - Jimmy and Griffin

So Iím here with Pickleball-Inc., the guys who started it all. And this is Jimmy and Griffin. First of all, we want to say thanks. PickleballCentral got an opportunity to have an exclusive start on sales on the new Champion. So you have some examples of that here. So tell me a little bit about the redesign and what went into it and what was the motivation for bringing a classic paddle up to date?

For sure! So I guess Iíll start. We got the new Champion Graphite and Champion Aluminum which are the same core and face material as our traditional graphite and aluminum paddles. Itís a material that people love for its durability and play as well. We definitely saw room for improvement as far as graphic design as well as some playability and durability aspects as well. We developed this all-new edge guard and grip for our Elite Series which came out a couple months ago and we got such a good response on it that we had to carry it on our new Champion paddles.

We were really worried too, with this paddle especially since itís been out for so long and itís had such a good response, and you guys have been buying it since Day 1Ö


We were really scared, well, not scared, but we were really precautious about how do we redesign thisÖ we wanted it to be simple, but at the same time, be new and be everything it could be, and I think we did that, and did a great job and Iím really happy with it. Weíll see, it just came out so going forward, Iím excitedÖ Iím really excited.

You did a great job.

What did you chose to bring today?
Iíve chosen the Champion with aluminum core. Itís the only paddle that Iíve owned that I played with, I started playing with it and I swear by it. Other players and beginners that start playing pickleball, I really encourage them to try the Champion range of paddles, only because theyíre light, they have a good surface area, well stable and you get a lot of play out of your paddle. Iíve owned this for now over a year and I play a lot of pickleball and I play a very strong game. And Iíve had no issues whatsoever. Other paddles, Iíve heard, handles break, they have a lot of issues, but Iíve been quite happy with this.

Great, great. Thank you.
All right.

Thank you, you have a great day.

Perfect April 1, 2019
Reviewer: Lynn Courtenay from Georgia  
I’ve only been playing Pickleball for 5 months but I play as much as possible. Started with an inexpensive set from Amazon. Paddles were clunky and heavy. Ordered 4 paddles from Pickleballcentral and this was one of the two I kept. It has a great feel to it and a great”pop” when you hit the seeetspot. My group have all tried it and want one too. I only wish they had free returns. It cost me $25 to return the two paddles I didn’t keep.
But that was clearly stated in the info. Just didn’t think it would cost that much. But otherwise I love it.

Replacement Paddle Process March 28, 2019
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Westminster, CO United States  
Our Rally 2.0 paddle broke about two weeks before reaching its one year warranty deadline. We contacted Pickleball Central with this problem, and Jennifer Cook responded. With her excellent help and guidance, we were able to replace, at no cost to us, the Rally 2.0 with a newer Champion 2.0, which Jennifer said is the most similar to the Rally 2.0. Thank you Pickleball Central, and especially Jennifer Cook.

Love this paddle March 23, 2019
Reviewer: Lynn from Georgia  
I have only been playing pickleball for 5 months but I am hooked! I was playing with a paddle that I got from Amazon. It was OK to start with but I wanted a better, more responsive paddle. I searched the pickleballcentral website and decided on this one! Played with it the first time today and just loved it~ Nice weight and feel and a great "pop" sound. Three of my pickleball friends tried it and want to order the same paddle! Very happy with this purchase!
