The 10 Best Juggling Clubs
This wiki has been updated 11 times since it was first published in July of 2020. As a hobby, juggling has a lot going for it. It provides you with exercise, helps improve hand-eye coordination, relieves stress, and, once you're good enough, you can impress friends and family or even start to do your own shows. This list covers all the bases, whether you need a one-piece club for starting your training or a decorated composite model for wowing your audience.

All circus disciplines take a lot of time and patience to get good at, be it riding a unicycle or keeping a devil stick in the air, and juggling is certainly no different. If you're considering buying clubs, then you've probably already dedicated more than just a few hours to the cause with balls.
Buying the right kind of club though can be tricky - after all, juggling is enjoyed by kids and adults alike and abilities can vary considerably. You don't want to pay through the nose for a pro set when your child has expressed only a passing interest, and similarly, you don't want to buy something that won't feel or spin the way it should if you're looking to take your skills to the next level.
If your child is already a proficient ball juggler and they're ready to move onto batons, it's worth getting them something that looks and feels just like the adult version, only smaller. For this reason, we put in the Zeekio Pixie Junior-Sized, which will eventually make for a seamless transition to the longer ones.
If you're progressing to intermediate level, an upgrade to a composite club is recommended, where the body and handle are fitted around a wooden dowel. This is key to giving a well-balanced weight for fast and consistent spins, and also helps prevent cracking because they have some give. The Henrys Loop Grip Training Single is particularly useful for learning to catch on the opposite end.
Experienced jugglers will want something made by a trusted brand that really stands out on stage so we made sure to include the Play PX3 Deco Vegas and the Henrys Pirouette, which are both popular models sporting a metallic trim.
