The Applause Paddle excels at touch and control and is perfect for all-round play. Its elastic inverted topsheet affords good spin for learning and executing high spin shots like loops and serves. The soft sponge rubber provides good speed and high control. The light weight of the paddle and the size of its head and handle are ideal for children while still being comfortable for adults. Comes only in a straight handle with 1.9 mm Newgy Omega rubber in red and black. Approved by USATT.
