Whether you’re a weekend warrior, a 5-nights a weeker, or an avid tournament goer, having your bag efficiently stocked with the necessary pickleball accessories is a must. You've already purchased your pickleball paddles and now you're looking for the next best thing to improve your game. In this article, the Paddle Experts at JustPaddles cover the five (5) must-have pickleball accessories to keep in your bag and the best options within each category. Before we begin, here's an overview of what to expect:
Don’t be “that person.” The one that uses everyone else’s pickleballs and never supplies any! We have several options to choose from in different-sized packs so you can do your part in the great battle of “who’s bringing the balls?!”
Used in the majority of tournaments across the country, Dura balls quickly and concretely cemented themselves as the premium ball in pickleball. If you need an easy go-to, go with the Onix Dura balls. These are available as an add-on with every pickleball paddle. Simply add it to your cart before checkout!
Playing very similar to the Dura ball, Franklin pickleballs have become increasingly popular for their solid and consistent bounce, bright visuals, and ability to hold up in cold climates. These are also available as an add-on with every pickleball paddle. Simply add it to your cart before checkout!
For those players trying to balance their pickleball paddles, water bottle, pickleballs, an extra shirt, sun screen (you get the point), we’d recommend a pickleball backpack. Many pickleball backpacks are designed specifically for pickleball, and make it a lot easier to shuffle to the courts with your gear. There are many great backpacks to choose from on the market, but here are two that we love:
Loved for its utility, versatility, and comfort, the Gearbox Court Backpack is a great option for any player! For those demanding the most out of their bag, this pickleball backpack is the one for you. Room for everything you need and more - take the court with style and show off your style with the multiple color options.
If your hands tend to sweat a lot, or you’re hard on your pickleball paddles, it’s always a great idea to have at least two or three backup overgrips when you or your partner are in need. Overgrips are a thin, easy-to-apply grip that is installed over the existing “replacement” grip. If you need help applying one to your paddle, make sure to read our article on How to Regrip Your Pickleball Paddle. Or, watch Paddle Expert Ben go through the simple six-step process below.
Here are two of our favorite options to keep you securely stuck to your paddle.

Each pack contains three overgrips and offers an easy and fun way to add style to your paddle. These are available as an add-on with every pickleball paddle.
