Approved Paddle List For Play at Trilogy at Vistancia 2019

Overview

In an effort to reduce the recreational noise caused by the game of Pickleball, the Trilogy Pickleball Club has adopted a list of approved paddles that can be used on our courts. This list has been developed by Sun City Grand (SSG.) It is based on a sound study that was commissioned there to determine which paddles were creating sound at a decibel level that may be unacceptable.
In addition to the sound study performed, the SSG Pickleball Club provided assistance by testing the most commonly used paddles, allowing them to create a chart so those playing the game or thinking of playing the game would know what paddles are allowed on the courts. One thing pointed out and also observed is that a simple "ear" test (listening to play) will also alert those monitoring the use when a player is using a paddle that is much louder than the approved paddles.
