about us

Welcome to PickleVille502, where passion for racquet sports and the spirit of friendship converge in the heart of Louisville, Kentucky, most known as “Derby City.” Our story begins with two lifelong friends who, having shared a love for sports like tennis, ping pong, and racquetball, discovered the exciting world of pickleball.

As enthusiasts of racquet sports, we embraced pickleball with open arms, eager to explore the unique blend of strategy, finesse, and camaraderie it offered. However, our journey into the sport unveiled a significant challenge – the cost of quality pickleball paddles. Unlike more established sports like tennis, the pricing model for pickleball paddles seemed disproportionately high, especially for those seeking top-tier equipment.

Control and Touch


Carbon Spin


Raw Power




I've used the Ben Johns Joola Pro paddle before, and decided to give the Dark Horse paddle a try based on a recommendation from a friend. It's excellent! I Great balance of power and control. I liked the Joola, but LOVE this paddle! Best paddle I've used.  What a great price also!!


Amazing paddle, pop is great, spin is great, power is great!


I definitely play at a higher level with this paddle. What really sets this paddle apart is control and spin. My ability to precisely dink is dramatically improved, and I've left people shocked at how the ball bounces away at a right angle when I give it a ton of spin.


Whether you're a casual player or a serious competitor, this pickleball paddle delivers on every front – value, durability, and design. I can confidently recommend it to anyone looking to elevate their pickleball experience.
