The PPA Tour Links Up with Sport Court in Latest Partnership
Sport Court modular flooring offers an alternate court solution to pickleball lovers
SALT LAKE CITY, UT (July 26, 2022) – The PPA Tour and Sport Court® have signed a comprehensive deal that spans 2022 and names Sport Court as the “Official Portable Court of the PPA Tour.” Sport Court will showcase its offerings, which include a demo pickleball court, at four of the largest PPA Tour destinations this year, starting with the Baird Wealth Management Open in Cincinnati on September 7-11.
“Sport Court is thrilled to be the Official Portable Court of the PPA Tour,” said Ryan Day, Senior Sales Director at Sport Court. “As a provider of sport surfaces around the world, from top athletic associations to backyards, our surfaces are designed for competition at all levels. We look forward to the players, pros, and fans experiencing the Sport Court pickleball surface for themselves while enjoying the PPA Tour events.”
Sport Court’s local, certified CourtBuilders, who install sport surfaces around the country, marked the exploding popularity of pickleball over the last few years. It was clear that players of all ages were deriving great joy from the sport and would spend hours playing and practicing. Sport Court created a surface that provides an authentic playing experience and allows players of all levels to practice and compete for longer periods of time with less strain on the body compared to traditional hard courts.
“We continue to prioritize the expansion of our pickleball-specific product offerings and love partnering with recognizable, high-quality brands like Sport Court,” said Connor Pardoe, Commissioner of the PPA. “We look forward to showcasing this partnership throughout 2022 and beyond.”
In addition to its demo courts at tournaments, Sport Court will also work with the Pickleball Central Superstore to showcase its products, hold competitions, host pro signings, and giveaway prizes. Read more about Sport Court products here.
