Since coining the phrase “Pickleball Uniting the World” in 2016, it has by no means been extra apt. There are tournaments and pickleball occasions being hosted on almost each populous continent around the globe. Amazingly, a pickleball and paddles have even been taken to Antartica and hit between two gamers in full chilly climate gear!
Just a bit historical past on how the phrase got here into being. I used to be making ready to journey to Europe to play in two tournaments. The primary in Kent, England, after which on to Helsinki (Espoo), Finland for a second one per week later. In England I used to be partnering a Scottish participant, and in Finland my accomplice was Spanish. I needed to provide every of them a present, celebrating our worldwide partnerships. My first thought, two crossed paddles with the USA flag and my accomplice’s nation flag got here to gentle, and I made a decision to make tee shirts for us to put on after we performed, and later to recollect our experiences collectively.
Since then, I’ve performed in different worldwide tournaments, and have created a flag mixture to signify every of these occasions. I’ve additionally had requests from different gamers to have their nation or nationality represented in a design. Lately, I did a redesign, that includes a easy map of the world on one paddle with a rustic flag on the opposite.
My newest design is one I’m very enthusiastic about, and sit up for seeing it worn on pickleball courts worldwide! I’m providing it now on tees, sweatshirts, hoodies and mugs for 30% off! (Affordable worldwide transport too!) Simply click on the picture!
