The PPA Tour will continue to abide by the USAP paddle specifications and guidelines. The PPA Tour will only allow paddles that are on the approved list to be used in competition.
Starting 5/15/2022 the PPA tour will be instituting onsite paddle testing protocols for all professional divisions.
CRBN paddles were recently moved to the list of unapproved paddles by USA Pickleball. In compliance with this USAP ban, the PPA Tour will continue to only allow approved paddles for professional and amateur events. The PPA strives to uphold the professional standards of the sport and will abide by the stance on paddle legality. This decision has been instituted for an indefinite duration.
