Buyer’s Guide for Pickleball Tops for Women

Buying a sportswear top, for pickleball or any other kind of court sport is actually a loaded subject. There are a lot of factors that go into finding the right sportswear and we’ve gone through all the hoops to collect everything there is to know about it. We’ve already published a complete buyer’s guide in a separate article, the best pickleball tops in the market. But, here’s a compact version of that:

Comfort

  • Choose tops made from soft, breathable materials 
  • Make sure the top fits well, neither too loose nor too tight, because you need space for movement
  • Consider sleeve length based on the climate. Surprisingly, elbow-length sleeves can be great at reducing heat around the arms

Material

  • Cotton is cheap and breathable but not great at wicking moisture
  • Polyester is lightweight and quick-drying but can trap sweat and odor
  • Nylon is lightweight, durable, and the best at wicking moisture, but less breathable
  • Look for tops that blend all three materials—like 60% cotton with polyester or nylon blends

Moisture-wicking

  • Look for tops with moisture-wicking fabric to keep you cool and dry
  • Moisture-wicking fabric pulls sweat away from the skin to evaporate through capillary action

UV Protection

  • Pickleball tops with UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) can block harmful rays
  • Look for a UPF rating of at least 30, which blocks 97% of UV radiation
  • Higher ratings like UPF 50+ can block up to 99% of UV radiation

Durability

  • Tops made with nylon or polyester blends or stronger and more durable to stretching
  • Look for reinforced seams and double stitching
  • Choose tops that are easy to maintain and machine washable

There’s a lot to consider when buying a pickleball top, but ultimately finding one that’s comfortable, affordable, and long-lasting is the goal. 

Next up, we’ll be talking about brands specifically and their patented technologies that make them a great option.
