Are you a pickleball addict or are you looking for pickleball gifts for someone who loves the sport? The team at PickleballMAX has put together product recommendations for the person who wants to maximize their picklebility — including their function, fashion, and health & wellness on the pickleball courts.
In the guide below, we include everything for the pickleball addict — including paddles, shoes, bags, Fitbit Activity Trackers, water bottles, sunglasses, and more.
The Pickleball Planner
Let’s be honest. Making your pickleball goals and tracking results takes time. It also requires brutal honesty. You will be most effective in accomplishing your goals, however, if you write them down with corresponding action steps – perhaps in a 160-page pickleball planner (in color) designed specifically for the pickleball addict… you know, one that fits conveniently in your pickleball bag for easy reference and review – complete with monthly & weekly calendars, trackers, goal sheets, rules interpretations and so much more!
For pickleball players, proper footwear is critical to prevent injuries. Walking/running shoes are made to support you moving forward not lateral movements from side-to-side. I highly recommend court shoes or tennis shoes when playing pickleball. It’s an investment well worth making. Here are my specific recommendations for the men.
Fitbit Activity Trackers
Fitbit activity trackers are great to track steps, distance, calories burned, active minutes, heart rate, and more. I have the Fitbit HR 2. It has been critical for me in measuring my fitness level. My typical game of pickleball results in approximately 750-1,000 steps. Sure beats the treadmill! 🙂
Stay hydrated with Jigsaw Health electrolytes. Jigsaw is a great alternative to chemical-filled Gatorade and Powerade. Be sure to use code ‘PICKLEBALLMAX10‘ to save $10 on your purchase.
Sunglasses are great gift ideas for the pickleball addict. Protect the eyes from UV rays with the following sunglasses.
Water bottles are a must to replenish fluids. I’ve purchased a few different insulated stainless steel water bottles and absolutely love them. Having your own water bottle is so much better than using plastic water bottles that aren’t good in the sun.
Travel light with pickleball bags that will carry all of your gear — including your paddles, water bottles, keys, cell phone, sunglasses, grips, balls, and towels. Here are my pickleball bag recommendations:
Increase your pickleball paddle grip with pickleball gloves.
Pickleball Paddle Grips
Enhance the tackiness and absorbency on your pickleball paddles with pickleball paddle grip.
Increase your skills with our Strategy and Technique downloadable printables. Also, included are Etiquette and Tournament tips. These printables are perfect to put in your pickleball bag or hang on your refrigerator.
Pickleball Club and Tournament Software
As a pickleball club begins to grow, it can be beneficial to leverage pickleball club and tournament management software to manage tasks and events. Check out Pickleball Den for your club and tournament management needs.
Here are some fun items for the pickleball addict to use while they quench their thirst:
Who doesn’t love jewelry? Wearing pickleball jewelry is the perfect way to share your joy of this sport both on or of the court. It makes for a great gift too!
Miscellaneous Gift Ideas
Here are a few other gift ideas for the pickleball addict who seems to have all the pickleball gear.
Finally, you didn’t think I’d forget paddles, did you? Virtually every pickleball player — at one time or another — dreams of a new paddle.
