Riptide by Diadem Sports


Fulfilled by our friends at Diadem Sports

The DIADEM RIPTIDE PADDLE is the perfect option for the serious pickleball player not looking to break the bank!  Perfectly balanced and easy to swing, you will be able to enjoy the game of pickleball right away.  Choose between the true Diadem teal, or the electric yellow.  The Riptide paddle uses HMT Fiber, a blend of hot melt glass fiber to give power to your baseline strokes and put away as well as a rough surface to get added spin.  The thick bumper prevents any scratches to the paddle surface as you learn the dos and don’ts of the game.  A .55in/14mm thickness with an 8mm honeycomb cell interior structure mimics our high-end Icon paddles for added power.   The next pickleball champion starts here.

USA Pickleball Approved.

Available in Teal and Yellow color ways.

Riptide is also available in a purple color way as a special edition paddle for Hospitality Homes - a portion of the proceeds from the purchase will be donated to this organization. Since 1983, Hospitality Homes has provided free and low-cost short-term housing in volunteer host homes and donated accommodations for patients, families, and caregivers who travel to Boston for specialized medical care. Guests are offered a place to stay regardless of age, ethnicity, diagnosis, healthcare facility of treatment, religion, ability, sexual orientation, or gender. Their approach – grounded by over 120 volunteers who open their homes to guests each year – reduces barriers to accessing medical care and provides much-needed relief from the emotional and financial strains of medical treatment, helping families stay together during some of the most critical and challenging times in their lives.
