PICKLEBALL PADDLE AWARDS

TOP RATED Pickleball Paddles

All Drive No Drop's 2024 pickleball paddle awards highlights the best control, all-court, and power paddles.

Throughout the year we test over 100 pickleball paddles and give them a score based off several objective and subjective factors. Only the absolute creme de la creme of pickleball paddles get to make it onto this prestigious list that  you’re currently looking at. These are the best paddles that excelled in three stages of performance: Spin, control, and all-court.  

The Best Control Pickleball Paddles

Here are the best control paddles that we tested. These excelled in blocks, dinks, resets, placement, and forgiveness. Control is the most subjective factor since it's based on the individual and the style of play. We tried to keep this unbiased by having multiple players test the paddle and seeing their thoughts.

Frequently Asked Questions

Did brands pay to be on this list?

Nope! These are based on our quantitative testing and results. As we test and rate more paddles we adjust this list to reflect the highest rated paddles.

There are so many paddles coming onto the market every year. Since we pride ourselves on personally testing every paddle we review, we only have time for so many reviews. Altough we try to represent every brand we try to prioritize paddles that are getting some hype or notoriety.

We do try to work with manufacturers by getting a discount code to offer to our readers. In return er receive a small commission that we use to buy paddles to test. Believe it or not we don't have brands lined up begging u to review. We have to often purchase our own paddles but this adds another level of unbiased reviews.

We keep a living spreadsheet of all the specs and stats that we collect when we test a paddle. Some of those stats are objective like power, and spin where we are measuring quantifiable data. However, there are some stats that are objective like forgiveness, feel, and control to an extent where it's based on your particular style of play or preferences. We try to use one uniform rating system and those that are rated the highest, make the list.
