Good afternoon Chris, I bought the Heritage carbon fiber paddle from you this weekend in Stratford. Just want to let you know I have used it for about 4 hours of play and I love it. My previous paddle was a H&$# Radical Pro, this is so much better, also glad to have a locally made one, cheers

Hi Chris
Just wanted to thank you for the new paddle.  Some friends came to our court today to play and it was a big hit.  Pretty sure you have some orders coming your way!  They loved the look and feel of it.  
Thanks again

Retro 87.
the paddle attracts a lot of attention and I've allowed (6) folks to play a game or two with it in the last few weeks. They seem amazed that I would let them do so.
I explain that I initially purchased it for nostalgic and aesthetic reasons (my first Tennis racquet was an (all-wood) Dunlop Max-Ply), and that I wanted to support local entrepreneurs. That having been said, it turns out to be a light and responsive paddle that I really enjoy using!

I love 🥰 my Brick House paddle and I play and teach at least 4 times a week. I really like the square handle

I am loving my Retro 87 paddle. I am so thrilled that it is actually designed and made in Canada and it is a fantastic paddle. Win, win!!!

Retro 87
I bought this paddle 2 months ago and I'm loving it.  The Retro 87 has helped my game out from using my original head racket. By far a better paddle then anything else I have bought or used yet. 
Will definitely buy again. 
Thanks BrickHouse paddles.

i’m very impress with the control at the net. Also this paddel has lots of power and I find it easy to place the ball where I want. I have to tell you that many people are asking me about your paddels and your company, and never know maybe I can convince my wife to change her H**& paddle for a new Brick house paddle.

Finally got to the use the Heritage 77 paddle that you sent me. Previously I have played with a Wilson paddle with a nomex core. A different sound coming of the your paddle and not as "lively" which I like. I did put a wrap of protection tape on the edge guard.
I like the feel of and shape of the handle and it is also long enough to comfortably use a two handed backhand.
Since I am strictly a "recreational" player I probably did not give it the ultimate test.

I liked the Heritage 77 a lot.  It seemed to have a dependable consistency to it.  It was powerful but balanced.  I never felt it was too little or too much.  I could play a soft game with it and a hard game.  It was responsive and seemed well disciplined.  I think it will have a strong start for those who are new to the sport

5 - Absolutely Love it 😍
I did not know much about pickleball before i started playing this year, but having a great paddle is key to controlling shots and learning how to hit the ball. My game really improved after getting a "real" paddle after using the using the big box store paddles to begin with!
Highly recommend you research and review the information on the brickhouse website - improve your game and enjoyment!

Purchased a Rt65 a couple of weeks ago and am just amazed at the looks quality and the way this paddle plays. So much I just received the new rt87 for my wife. The looks and quality are superb and we will let you know how it plays down the road. Love how easy to purchase and the quick shipping time. Thanks again for making these great looking paddles and in Canada

My hubby and I had the pleasure of meeting with Chris and learning about his method for making the paddles. We purchased a Heritage 75 and a Retro 87, both great paddles that are getting used at least 4-5 times a week. Love recommending to others as they are unique and well made. Can’t wait for the heritage 77 as it’s on my list for next purchase.

Brick House Paddles  (RETRO 65T). Loved it. Spins the ball well and is very light and comfortable. Problem is it is so nice looking I don't want to use it and ruin it. lol

Got my Brickhouse last weekend and I can Truthfully say it performs as good as it looks. And the folks at Brickhouse are marvelous, courteous, and knowledgeable about the game and their products.

Someone once referred to a Harley-Davidson motorcycle as a rolling piece of art. Your paddles are beautiful works of art! They look great in pics, but they're even more amazing in person!!
Andrew Evans aka. The Pickleball Librarian.

I’ve now used my 87 half a dozen times, but that's more than enough to tell you that I love it! It's so smooth and powerful that it takes much less effort to hit drives and overheads, and my usually achy shoulder is much less irritated than normal.

4 stars - super amazing
Have played with my new Retro 87 for three days. I love the grip and the longer handle length. The body is narrower than my previous paddle; this was a concern but it's had no affect on my play and the slightly longer face seems to help. It responds well to all aspects of my game. Friends say you need carbon to spin, but this paddle does everything well
JC  South Carolina

Re: Retro 87
Played my first games at my ladder league tonight. I found it had more control than my 65 when dinking and with a heavier head weight for deeper serves and harder smashes.
The added length is great too as when rallies got really fast that extra centimeter can make all the difference in the world.
I still have to get used to it as it handles ever so slightly differently compared to the 65, but I can tell you, I like it!

Hi Chris.   About your new 87 paddle, EXTRAORDINARY!!  The weight is perfect.  The handle, although seems as long as the Heritage, feels more comfortable and has a plush grip.  In all of my years of playing I have never found such a capable paddle.  It has power that is reserved in the waiting for when it is needed. It is responsive and seems to have an artificial intelligence that is brought forward upon request.  It offers direction like no other paddle I have seen.  It is exceptional for both deep serves, returns, groundstrokes and dinking.  I used it for the first time last night and I was amazed.  I have a two hour lesson today and cannot wait to use it.  It is truly a fabulous piece of engineering and design.  I am thrilled to have it in my box of paddles for new players to try and to order.  It really is an exceptional piece of work.

I have used and tested many brand name pickle ball paddles. I am not sure why anyone would purchase an out of country made paddle and pay for the logo, duty and US exchange when the best paddle is made here in Canada.

I cant wait until the Heritage is approved, people are blown away with what I can do with that paddle.

In response to our post on paddle width.

I can attest to the performance. After a few sessions using the 86T I'm impressed with my speed and control. Third shot drops are more consistent and "near the top" shots are more likely to clear the net. Size matters in some things but not all things.

Hi Chris, We love our new Heritage paddles and got to try them out against each other today.  We ‘re so glad we made the trip to St. Mary’s.  It was great meeting you and we appreciate all the time you spent explaining the paddles to us, letting us try the different models out and making sure we got the paddles that would work best for us.  Thanks again

I've only seen paddles for sale made in  the %-+&$-$&+#, so it's great to see a local Ontario pickleball paddle maker. I have and love the Heritage 75 paddle (non-sponsored!) & wish you and the company all the best!

March 2022
I loved the feel and grip of the Retro 65 paddle.  It is so important that I get a good quality grip and that’s not something you get with a lot of other companies.

re: Heritage 75
Used the paddle 3 times now. Like it alot.  Love the feel and soft touch it gives  me.  Thanks again for such a nice work of art and technical precision.  Had a few inquiries about where I purchased it. Hope they lead to more business

One of our customers cracked the trim on his paddle so we sent him replacement trim.
“Hi Chris,
After watching your video, it was unbelievably easy.  Looks great!  We will save the extra trim for later.  We are still enjoying our 65 and 85 paddles. I switched back to my Pla#ers paddle one night because it was extremely damp out and I didn't want to ruin my Brick House paddle, I could not believe how much it seemed like I was playing with a piece of lumber.  I used to love that paddle before I got my Brick House.
Thank you for your awesome customer service.  Happy holidays to you and yours and all the best for 2021”

Had to sneak my Retro 85T Cherry out to play before my wife wraps it and puts under the Christmas tree.  Initial thoughts on taking it out of the box were that it is well made. Grip size was perfect and very soft. The look of the wood is beautiful.  The paddle is light and very well balanced. 
During play I was pleased with the power. I have been using a Prokennex paddle which I think has good power but the T85 is It's equal there. I did find that there was less spin than my other paddle. I still got a lot of spin with the T85 which was surprising because of the smooth face . What little I lost in spin was more than made up for in touch and feel at NVZ. I have never hit better dinks or drops than I did today. 
I'll admit I asked for the T85 for Christmas because it looked cool and it's unique but I am extremely happy that it plays as good as it looks! 
p.s. I got the lighter model intending to add lead tape to it like my other paddle. I tend to have the paddle twist in my hand on miss hits and hurt my wrist sometimes. Lead tape on my other paddles have helped but it's probably an issue with my grip. The T85 never twisted in my hand. So either I didn't miss hit any(doubtful) or the T85 does a better job absorbing miss hits.

I have played with the Brick House Paddles Retro 65 T USAPA Approved - Purple People Eater grip size 4-4.125 for the summer outside season. I have grown to appreciate the solid construction of the paddle and how it feels in my hand. When the pickleball hits the surface of the paddle the deep sounds are welcomed and very different from my former paddle that is tinny.

Due to the slightly smaller face of the paddle than my other paddle, it has improved my skills in movement on court and tracking the ball. I have built up my play and confidence and have begun to play with the advanced players.

I've tried most of the Canadian paddles now (Brick*House, Apex, Manta, and Combat). I like a few things about the Brick*House that make it stand out over the others:

- The wood is delightful pretty, a nice change from the goofy graphics prevalent in most of the industry.
- It is narrow in shape with a generous sweet spot, it reminds me of a table tennis paddle in some ways. I find it very easy to move quickly and prefer it for my indoor games over any other paddle.
- As the face is wearing, I'm finding that the surface is getting tackier and I'm able to generate ample amounts of spin.
- The grip shape is fantastic and leaves me feeling in control.

It also feels great to brag about having a paddle manufactured in Canada -- that's not very common and for less than twice the price of something you can get at a big box store!

I look forward to future Brick*House paddle shapes.

 I am impressed with both its looks and I
noticed a difference in the short game. Dinking has been one of my
weaker points, though I have many, and the paddle seems to work better
for me with the dinking. Do not know why. I would rate myself as a 3
to 3.5 level player, I do not have the skill or talent to distinguish
the difference between my previous paddle or the Bad Ash with the
longer shots. The handle does feel really good with good gripping
power when needed. I am proud to use a paddle with some real wood in
its construction.
Keep up the good work'

I've been playing with my Retro 85T for a few months now and I quite like it. I'm around a 4.0 player and had been using a Paddletek Helo. I thought I'd try a shorter paddle and force myself to find a little extra quickness and accuracy at the net. My game does feel better and I'm, also, happy with the power of the Retro 85T. Of course, everyone comments on the beauty of the paddle, so that's a plus too.

From what I have seen I believe the Brick House Retro 65 paddle quality and build is first rate and I am sure it is on the 85 model as well. There is a good story to sell it with, wood and truly Canadian made. Plus the paddle plays solid and sets itself apart from a lot of the other paddles.

My old paddle was pretty beat up so needed a new one. I wanted something manufactured in Canada. I found Brickhouse in a search. I decided on the Retro 85T. It was the weight I wanted and the look of the paddle is great. So we stopped in St. Mary’s on one of our road trips and fortunately Chris had one available.
I’ve played with it now several times. The weight is right on for me. You can tell from the deep thunk and the feel when contact is made with the ball that the construction is superb. Several of the people I play with have tried it out and all are as impressed as I am with it.
I’m pretty hard on my paddles. They get pretty chewed up after about a year. When I do that to this 85T I can guarantee I’ll be going back for another one.

Our Tuesday morning play was rained out and the guys suggested we play Thursday. So yesterday I put the Retro 85T to the test. I am going to be using one of the 85T’s as the demo paddle for folks to try.
OMG!!...I am very excited about this 85T paddle. An all around great paddle for feel,touch and “pop” when needed. I must say you are on to something here. I will be tying it again this coming Tuesday when the guys come again. I will give you more feedback then.
Right now thou it has become my paddle of choice.
Thanks for getting me onboard with you guys, can’t wait to get out and around so others can be introduced to your paddles.

The paddle has a very solid sweet spot and the ball pops off of it with great strength.  I noticed that the vibrations of the ball hitting the paddle face is dampened - there are players who like this dampened feel and others who appreciate that extra connection of the paddle to the hand. As for the balance of the paddle during singles I found the balance provides a very satisfactory swing speed. My ground strokes were clean and accurate.

I LOVE my purple paddle! It really improved my game! The paddle weight and medium grip (I opted for this) works really well for me. My husband has a blue paddle and requested it to be a little more on the heavier side for all of the outdoor play that we have been doing during the pandemic. He loves it so much and ordered a cherry one with a lighter weight for indoor play. These are quality hand made paddles yet carefully crafted to meet regulation requirements. Buy one–you will not be disappointed!

I absolutely love my Brickhouse (Retro 65) paddle. The colour is perfect. I would highly recommend this paddle for both beginners and experienced players. The weight makes it easy to handle, yet it’s heavy enough to make those hard shots when necessary. Every pickleball player should have one of these paddles in their collection. 
Barb N,St Marys, On

Received my (Retro 65)paddle yesterday. Very impressed with appearance, even better than pictures. Seems to play well. Nice weight. Don’t think I will be the only one on our court with one of these for long.

Couldn’t be happier. When I first got my paddle I found the grip was to large. A week later the folks at Brickhouse followed up on my paddle and I mentioned the grip. They asked me to send it back, modified the grip for me no charge, and sent it back. Now that’s service. Paddle is great too

I have 2 of these babies, “one for each hand” I have become unbeatable”🤣. Seriously, I have noticed a marked improvement in the control of my shots particularly with the long shot. I recommend these paddles.

l ordered the 65T retro, only took 2days to get. A well made and good looking paddle, played with it today.I never really had to get used to it, l like it a lot and would buy from them again.Thank you guys    

I saw your face book page and thought I would try out your Retro 65 T paddle this week. I am currently using a Selkirk Invikta Mid Weight. I am a 3.5- 4.0 player playing both recreational and tournament play. I played for 3 hours with the 65 T that I picked up at Courtside sports in Victoria to demo.
I liked the idea it was made in Canada and also the wood face. This paddle felt very solid and along with a soft touch at the net during dinking. It tookme a little time to adjust to the power when hitting deep shots but you could feel the wood played a factor in that, once it I did it felt great.
The only wish would be if you could develop a longer version like the Invikta , I find the extra length does give an advantage in Singles and Tournament play.
With the quality and price point of of the 65T I would recommend it to all recreational players for sure
