Named “Center,” Round21 and artist Ju Schnee’s collaborative ping pong paddle features a colorful design that clearly marks the middle of the strike zone—where the ball should hit to avoid it careening out of bounds.

This high-preformance paddle features an ergonomic grip that lends comfort and control, and a rubber-foam hybrid pad for improved accuracy. Right now, the brand commits 10% of net proceeds to the Public Art Fund.
