How long do pickleball paddles last?

The lifespan of your Chill Pickle pickleball paddle will depend on how well you maintain it; however, a general rule of thumb is to plan on replacing your pickleball paddle once every 2 – 3 years.

Where are your pickleball paddles manufactured?

Chill Pickle paddles are designed and tested in the USA. They are produced in China through a manufacturing partner with decades of experience in the racquet sports industry.

How do I take care of my new pickleball paddle?

There are three key components to proper paddle care that will help protect your investment for the long-term:

  1. Cleanliness: Be sure to keep your paddle clean by either wiping it with glass cleaner, or using our Revive-Pad Paddle Eraser to remove plastic ball residue buildup and restore your paddle surface to like-new condition.
  2. Climate Control: Avoid leaving your pickleball paddle out in the extreme heat or cold as this can lead to excess wear and tear, and may require you to replace your paddle earlier than necessary.
  3. Covering: Invest in a protective cover for your pickleball paddle, such as our ultra-thick, premium neoprene pickleball paddle covers designed to keep your paddle protected for the long-term.

Do you offer a lifetime warranty on your pickleball paddles?

We purposely design each of our paddles with maximum durability in mind. As such, we stand behind the quality of our paddles with a lifetime warranty. However, there are certain things that our lifetime warranty will not cover, including:

  • Paddles damaged by pets
  • Paddles damaged in fits of rage or caused by excess abuse
  • Paddles left behind at the court
  • Paddles damaged by normal wear and tear

If you have an issue with your paddle and feel it should be covered under our lifetime warranty, we encourage you to reach out to our team at to file a claim and see if you’re eligible to receive a replacement paddle. A member of our team will respond within 24 hours to assist with your claim.
