hardwood paddle ball

by Grace Bonney

I’m heading out to the beach today (take that, pale legs!), so I’ve got beach games on the brain. I actually ordered boogie boards online this week; the only thing missing from an afternoon of fun is a good game of paddle ball. I grew up with the soft neon foam sets, so this striped hardwood version (made from a mix of walnut, teak, mahogany, purple heart and leather) at Terrain seems like the Rolls-Royce of paddle games. This set is almost too pretty to put away at the end of summer — I’d be tempted to hang it on the wall and enjoy the striped wood year round. If you’re looking to upgrade your beach or backyard paddle set, click here to check out and shop this set online. xo, grace
