The irony is a few years ago when the grandparents mentioned pickleball, not only did the quirky name draw laughs, but the grandkids rolled their eyes saying "never", as in never would they play pickleball. Well, you've heard it said never say never; they played. In fact, pickleball is the fastest-growing sport in the US. Confused? Here's the "dill" - it's a mix of badminton, tennis and table tennis.
The quirky name? Name for a family dog!
Pickles' founders might not have envisioned back in 1965 that today more than 4.8 million people would play the game. While players have doubled in the last 5 years, it's not just your granny playing the game. In fact, a recent Pickleball report found a third of players are under 25 years old. The Smasher Pickleball Paddle featured here not only has a large contact area that's a sweet spot for the ball, but the full color offers a pretty sweet imprint area for your brand message too. This type of fitness product seemed like the perfect addition to our Quirky Enough to Work series.
Just one question left, have you tried this sport yet?
