What To Look for in Pickleball Clothing for Women

What To Wear for Pickleball

Clothes for pickleball have almost the same features as those you use for workouts to let you stay comfortable and help you achieve your peak performance in every game.

Enhanced Breathability

Prioritize fabrics and cuts that offer a breezy, lightweight feel to maintain coolness as your body temperature rises during play. Go for shirts featuring cut-outs, perforations, and lightweight materials, such as polyester to encourage improved air circulation.

Utilize Moisture-Wicking Fabrics

Choose moisture-wicking and quick-drying materials engineered to pull moisture away from the skin, facilitating rapid evaporation to prevent sweat from interfering with your gameplay.

Convenient Pockets

Some pickleball enthusiasts prefer clothing with pockets in shorts, pants, or skirts to conveniently store extra balls and other essentials needed on the court.

Stretchy Materials

Seek out designs crafted to move seamlessly with your body. Ensure garments offer enough looseness to avoid restricting movement, yet remain snug enough to prevent interference. Sleeveless tops or shirts featuring shoulder seams allow for unhindered arm mobility while bottoms with adjustable drawstrings offer a customizable fit.


For unpredictable weather conditions, consider bringing along a water-resistant and wind-resistant jacket to shield yourself from the elements while playing.

What To Wear for Pickleball

Pickleball demands bursts of athleticism, agility, and spatial awareness. Therefore, prioritizing comfort and mobility is paramount.

Go for pickleball clothes that instill confidence and comfort, enabling you to perform at your best on the courts.
