We’re All a Little Grip Crazy at GAMMA

May 3, 2017

GAMMA Pickleball Grip Crazy Facebook contest.

The US Open Pickleball Championships have come and gone and if you were checking our Facebook page, you would have seen that our resident pickleball expert, Chuck, was making a name for himself on the pickleball courts in Naples, Florida.

Not to mention Josh, the face of the Pickleball Diaries, was giving us a behind-the-scenes look at the action as well.

Before we even touched down in Florida, the excitement within our GAMMA pickleball community was off the charts, and people were going #GripCrazy!

In case you have no idea what we’re talking about, let us give you a quick rundown on the last couple of weeks.

Since we’re the Official Grip Sponsor of the US Open Pickleball Championships, we decided that we wanted to give back to the pickleball community and start a fun contest where three lucky pickleballers would win a loaded GAMMA backpack filled with official US Open grips, a GAMMA t-shirt, even more GAMMA grips and some other GAMMA merchandise – that’s a $100 value!

Now, if you didn’t win a loaded GAMMA backpack, not all is lost! This week, we just unveiled our highly-anticipated, newly redesigned GAMMA 2.0 pickleball paddles!

Brand-new GAMMA 2.0 pickleball paddles.

At GAMMA, we’ve made a paddle for every style of play and every type of competitor. The next generation of pickleball paddles will offer you the innovation you need to take your pickleball play up a notch. Every new GAMMA pickleball paddle features either a textured graphite or fiberglass face for better spin and ball bite. You’ll be amazed at the change in your game—check them out!

From everyone at GAMMA, we’d like to thank those in the pickleball community who took the time to tell us why they were #GripCrazy! We appreciate your participation and are already looking forward to next year.
