Reviews for pickleball paddles can be found on the websites of sporting goods stores such as Dick's Sporting Goods, general retailers such as Amazon and specialty retailers such as Pickleball Central. Reviews are for specific brands and models of pickleball rackets and unique to each site's user base.
To view reviews of a particular pickleball racket on Amazon, users must first navigate to that paddle's individual product listing. At the top of the page, users can find a quick summary of the paddle's information, including a link to the full review section, as of March 2015. In order to write a review, users must have an Amazon account that has successfully completed one paid physical transaction or digital download as a means of verifying the user's identity. The site does not require its users to purchase an item in order to write a review, though it does add a special designation to those reviews written after the user purchased the item from Amazon.
Reviews on the Dick's Sporting Goods site consist of both a satisfaction rating that consists of one to five stars and a written section where the users discuss their experience with the pickleball paddle. Other users are able to rate the review based on its level of helpfulness.
