Pickleball Rocks To Offer Etched Pickleball Crystal Gifts

Excited describes it mildly.  We are over the moon ecstatic to introduce the Michael J. Schwartz line of high quality etched crystal gifts to Pickleball Nation.

When Michael Schwartz himself called and asked if we’d be interested in being the exclusive marketer for his new line of pickleball crystal giftware, our immediate answer was….“as long as people can also get it with the “Pickleball Rocks” logo on it.” 🙂

It didn’t take him long to reply with, “I’ll have your logo added to my line of pickleball logo selections right away and send you some samples.”

And with that, our newest product offering was born.

We are so happy to offer this great line of crystal glasses, serving plates, bowls and picture frames.
Whether you are buying it to give as a great award at your tournament or buying a can’t miss Christmas or birthday present for a friend, you can’t go wrong with a high quality etched Pickleball Crystal Gift.

You pick the pickleball logo (including Pickleball Rocks) you want for the front of your selected crystal piece.  Then if you want, you get a free second personalized etching on the other side of the piece. This could be your personal initials or a date or saying or phrase like “GOLD MEDAL WINNER” or simply “A WINNER”.  It is totally up to you what you put on it.

To see the full selection of Pickleball Crystal Gifts, CLICK HERE and enjoy.

Go ahead and make some pickleball player’s Christmas special this year.

This will be the one gift that nobody will want to return.

Have fun shopping!

Pickleball Rocks and TrackitHub Grow Pickleball Together

As we travel the country, we are seeing towns and communities exploding with pickleball like never before and there is no sign of slowing down any time soon.  And one of the biggest trends we’ve seen lately is the development of pickleball leagues.

When you ask communities about how many tournament players they have, the percentage is always very low.  But when you ask about how many people would enjoy playing in some type of organized league, the numbers shoot through the roof.

Leagues can come in many forms, (ladder leagues, flex leagues, round robins, shootouts, etc) but the bottom line is, they are fun and everyone can enjoy a level of competition that suits them.

Yes, whether it’s a relaxed recreational league or a super competitive league, we are happy to tell you that TrackitHub can help you handle and organize them all.

If you live in a community that hasn’t tried setting up a league, by all means, sign up for free at www.TrackitHub.com and let their cool software help you have the fun of your life with your pickleball friends.

Oh, and did we mention that TrackitHub is also the king of organizing and managing your pickleball club. Everything from scheduling club events to easily communicating with all your club members, TrackitHub does it all.

We’re certainly looking forward to promoting TrackitHub everywhere we go because we believe that leagues are just another great way to grow pickleball in your community.

The Pickleball Olympics: Who Will Win?

Every four years, the whole world gets excited about the Summer Olympics.

Athletes from all over the world come together to compete for Gold, Silver and Bronze, but more importantly for the pride of their country.

Well, in the great sport of pickleball, we get to do that once a year.  In 2017 the International Federation of Pickleball brought together 12 countries to battle for the famed Bainbridge Cup.   In Madrid Spain, over 100 players from the United States and Canada joined together as Team North America to win 200 of the total 302 matches played against Team Europe.

The scene of the tournament was like one seen in every summer Olympics.  The teams from each country were all dressed in matching sweatsuits and shirts with the name of their country’s federation on their backs. It was an awesome experience indeed.

This year, the battle between North America and Europe will take place in Montesilvano. Italy on July 20th followed by the 2 day Italian Open Championships.  If you haven’t registered to play yet, there is still time at PickleballTournaments.com.

But if you cannot make it this year, we hope you will support the team by wearing the new Team North America shirts.  They are available in short sleeve, long sleeve and sleeveless for men and women.  But can only be ordered for the next 72 hours.  All orders received by midnight June 29th will be completed and at your door before we leave for Italy on July 14th.  Once you receive your Team North America shirt, please send us a picture of you and friends wearing it so we can post it on our Pickleball Rocks facebook scrapbook page.

So who will win this year’s Bainbridge Cup?  Team North America or Team Europe?   That’s why we play the matches….

Wish us luck,

Rocket

Pickleball Rocks Training Academy Welcomes Scott Moore, Daniel Moore and Jonathan Moore To The Team and Launches High Performance Pickleball

Today the team at Pickleball Rocks, announced the launch of their newest pickleball brand, High Performance Pickleball.  Along with this exciting launch, came the great news that the nationally known Pickleball Rocks Training Academy, headquartered in Fort Wayne, Indiana, has increased its coaching staff by three with the addition of Scott, Daniel and Jonathan Moore.

 

 

Said Pickleball Rocks president Rodney Grubbs, “We haven’t been this excited since the original launch of Pickleball Rocks over 8 years ago.  We couldn’t be happier about adding Scott, Daniel and Jonathan Moore to our Pickleball Rocks Academy coaching team.  The Moore’s certainly take teaching the game of pickleball to a whole new level.  But even more importantly to us is that we are adding a truly great family.  They mirror not only our family values, but our passion to grow pickleball across the globe. They are the perfect choices to take both the Pickleball Rocks and High Performance Pickleball brands around the world.

The Moore family will operate, control and wear our new High Performance Pickleball brand name, and as they do now, will offer high level training boot camps, clinics and mini clinics throughout North America, Europe and Asia.”

Recent US Open triple crown winner Scott Moore added, “It seems like Pickleball Rocks is recognized absolutely everywhere, so we’re happy to be teaming up with one of the most recognized brand names in pickleball.  With their help, we love the thought of building the High Performance Pickleball brand and taking our clinics and boot camps around the world.”

According to terms of the agreement, High Performance Pickleball will be added as a featured  training offering of the Pickleball Rocks Training Academy.  The High Performance Pickleball brand will include a full line of pickleball shirts and hats for sale along with the famous, high intensity training long associated with the Moore family.
