Need more convincing that pickleball is the sport to play? If you're ready to serve up style on the pickleball court we've got some tips on choosing the right sportswear.

Discover the ultimate guide to pickleball outfits, from what to look for in pickleball attire to how to style different pieces for the perfect outfit. We’ll cover everything you need to know about what to wear next time you hit the court and how you can effortlessly elevate your pickleball fashion.

The Essentials: What to Look for in A Pickleball Outfit


The right clothes can enhance your performance and comfort on the court—and keep you stylish once the game is wrapped. When shopping for pickleball attire, prioritize comfort and mobility.

Look for moisture-wicking materials that keep you dry and cool during intense matches. Opt for lightweight, breathable fabrics that allow for unrestricted movement.


Here are a couple of the key factors to consider when picking out clothes for pickleball:

Movement Is Key

Look stylish and perform better? Yes, please. Pickleball is a fast-paced sport that demands quick movements and agility, making freedom of movement essential. Pickleball clothing made with stretchy fabrics, such as polyester-spandex blends or lightweight nylon, allows for a full range of motion.

Choose designs with strategic ventilation to keep you cool and comfortable during long rallies. Modern pickleball apparel offers stylish options that help you perform at the top of your game while also making a statement on the court.

Whether you prefer bold colors or sleek designs, you can find cute pickleball outfits that combine functionality with fashion.

Stay Comfortable


Stay comfortable both on and off the court by choosing clothing made from moisture-wicking fabrics like polyester or nylon blends. These materials are designed to draw sweat away from your skin, keeping you dry throughout the entire match. If you enjoy playing outdoors, prioritize pieces with UPF protection to shield your skin from harmful UV rays.

Dress for the Weather & Season

Always keep the weather and season in mind when it comes to pickleball fashion. For example, if you’re playing indoors, focus on breathable materials for long-lasting comfort.

For outdoor play, consider the weather forecast and dress accordingly. Sunny days call for lightweight, moisture-wicking clothing with UPF protection, while cooler temperatures require breathable, insulating fabrics that keep you warm without restricting movement.

Feminine Flair

Layer up with a lightweight zip-up jacket for added warmth during cooler weather. Pair a vibrant green jacket with your favorite black athletic pants and tennis shoes for an eye-catching, low-effort pickleball outfit.
