4. Babolat Counter Vertuo

  • Weight: 350g
  • Head Shape: Round
  • Balance: Even

The Counter Vertuo is pricier than the other Babolat beginner rackets we've listed, but we say it's a great investment if you intend to progress - it's a more technical racket that will give you the features you need as you refine your padel skill. Babolat says it offers 'effortless power', so it's easy for a less experienced player to handle. But with excellent balance and a hybrid head shape, you can develop your precision play in any direction you choose.
