Pickleball Now is a very interesting company. Built and still managed by Tom Wheeler, but now owned and newly capitalized by Escalade Sports, owners of such modest brands as Prince shoes, Bear Archery, Stiga table-tennis and so on, these guys are true innovators.
Pickleball Now makes the claim of having been the originators of the wild-and-crazy graphic paddle designs that make P-ball so pretty,the first ones out with an “edgeless” paddle, leaders in core design and much more. Most recently, however, we’ve been impressed with what Tom is doing with their outdoor balls. The TNT ball, which also comes in a pretty nice green, is a well-engineered ball without the obvious ridges that you see on so many of the more commonly-known balls.
Look for them to soon re-brand themselves with a name change and more new products. We’re pretty excited about them! For now, their contact information is:
