Where has all the graphite gone?


As of this moment, graphite pickleball paddles are on the decline for the U.S. pickleball market including dealers and pickleball players.  Graphite paddles peaked a couple of years ago but are now being replaced with paddles constructed of alternate materials due to supplier issues and and inability to obtain the quality of graphite at the price that was previously available.  read the remainder of this post on our BRS blog.

Pickleball Magazine – FREE Issue


Hello Spring!

PickleFlower April flowers bring…er, snow?  Well, we’re pretty sure that’s the end of it.  So with warmer weather on the way it’s the return to outdoor pickleball!  For those of you who pursue other activities during the winter, it’s time to unearth your paddle and head to the courts.  For those of you who played indoors through the fall & winter, pick up some outdoor balls, sunscreen, and enjoy the fresh air.  May the wind be at your back and may you enjoy the outdoor season in good health.  Cheers from your friends at BRS!
