Sustainability

Pickleball paddle technology has come a long way in the past few years. Gone are the days of the wooden paddle. Today, most people play with multi-layered paddles that have plastic cores and synthetic surfaces. These technological advancements have done wonders for the game, but our planet? Not so much… 

The most common pickleball paddle face materials, carbon fiber and fiberglass, are polluting our planet. They take an intense amount og energy to produce generating tons of greenhouse gases in the process. They also don't biodegrade and cannot be easily recycled. That’s why we created our plant-based BioFLX™ face. Check out how our sustainability stats compare with the competition!
