As the summer heat approaches, it's important to consider how it can affect your padel racket.
High temperatures tend to soften rackets
If you live in a hot area, you may have already noticed that the high temperatures can soften the inside core of your racket, making it feel softer. While this may be comfortable for some players, those who prefer precision and power may want to consider using a harder racket during the summer months. Options like Varlion's Summer rackets, specifically designed for temperatures above 77°F can be great choices. Models such as Babolat Technical Viper or Osaka Vision Pro Power Touch are also to consider.
In summer, your racket needs extra care
In addition to choosing the right racket, taking extra care of your pala during the summer is essential. Avoid leaving your racket exposed to direct sunlight or in a hot car, as this can damage it and increase the risk of breakage. Investing in a padel bag with an isotherm compartment, such as Adidas Multigame 3.2 Padel Racket Bag or Osaka Pro Tour Bag Medium can provide added protection for your racket against the summer heat.
By being mindful of the effects of hot weather on your padel racket and taking appropriate measures to care for it, you can ensure optimal performance and longevity, and continue to enjoy your game during the summer season.
