EngagePickleball is proud to announce the latest version (innovative step) of the 'Poach' paddle (the first ever 'dual' core Pickleball paddle). By taking engineering, technology and manufacturing to the next level, EngagePickleball engineers re-designed and enhanced the 'Poach' paddle. It now only weighs 8.5 oz on average. It plays softer, and has more feel. The looks and dimensions are exactly the same, we just re-engineered and enhanced the core to make the paddle even better.
