How do I choose the correct racket shape to compliment my game?

The padel rackets come in three basic shapes: the round shape, drop shaped and diamond shaped.

Round shaped rackets usually work for players of all skill levels. Their sweet spot is directly in the middle, they usually allow players for best control and are suitable for the more overall and defensive styles. They allow to play close to the glass and react quickly on the court. From complete beginners, all the way to professional players, a round shaped racket is the most popular kind in padel.

Diamond shaped rackets put emphasis on speed and are preferred by players that play an agressive, attacking style. Diamond shaped rackets are not suitable for beginners, as their sweet spot lies closer toward the edge of the racket, making the diamond shaped racket the preferred choice for advanced and professional players that play an agressive style of padel

The drop shaped racket presents a combination of a round shaped and diamond shaped rackets. Preferred by players that like to alter from an agressive into the defensive style, this racket shape is also intended more for the advaced players.
