In case you haven’t heard, there’s a game that’s making waves across the social sports sphere. We’re talking about a little something called pickleball, and it’s fast becoming the go-to game of choice for anyone looking to hang out, have some fun, and break a sweat.
And now that pickleball has got your attention, you’re going to need some gear. That’s where GAMMA Sports comes in.
GAMMA Sports has been playing pickleball since before it was cool. This Pittsburgh-proud company has been leading the way, driving pickleball forward and pioneering new technologies to make scoring the game-winning point that much more rewarding.
They can hook you up with the state-of-the-art gear if you're thinking of going pro. But more likely, you're still an average Joe. And GAMMA's got just what every recreationalist and weekend warrior needs to get into the game — even if it's your first time stepping on the court. For that, you can't go wrong with the Fusion LE and the Fusion Pro, which make it easy (and fun) to learn the ropes with your friends.
With a lightweight design, a soft, absorbent grip, and a wide, textured surface, they're the perfect paddles for the pickleball player that's just starting out (you'll be volleying in no time!). Plus, if you really want to set yourself apart from the competition, GAMMA offers a whole line of licensed designs, so you can customize either of these paddles and rep your college's colors. Really, does it get much better?
So, when you're ready to break in your first set of paddles, all you have to do is order up the Fusion LE or the Fusion Pro to get a game going. Then, it’s just a matter of rallying the crew and getting out there.
In Chicago, that shouldn't be hard considering we've got Maggie Daley Park, a little slice of heaven tucked between the lake and the urban jungle, and yes, their courts are ideal for pickleball. Just try to keep your eyes on the wiffle ball with all the views.
