ONIX Signs New Two-Year Extension with the PPA

ONIX Dura Fast 40 Pickleball will serve as the PPA Tour's official tournament ball through 2023

ONIX Pickleball, the number one brand in pickleball, announced today that its partnership with the Pro Pickleball Association has been extended through 2023. The Dura Fast 40 Pickleball will continue to be the Official Ball of all PPA Tour events through 2023. By sponsoring the PPA Tour, ONIX looks to further support and invest in tournament play at the highest level of the sport of pickleball. 

“We are ecstatic to announce our continued commitment to the best players in the game and players of all levels while continuing to invest in the sport of pickleball with our partners at the PPA,” says Jay Simmons, Pickleball Product Manager. “At ONIX, we take great pride in supporting grassroots pickleball to grow the game for all players, along with manufacturing the preferred pickleball in the sport.” 

The ball of choice for professional players and top tournaments, the Dura Fast 40 uses a patented hole pattern machined directly into a single seamless piece resulting in a game ball with perfect bounce, speed, and superior flight characteristics. Optimized for outdoor play and windy conditions, the Dura ball is USA Pickleball Association/IFP tested and approved for tournament play. 

“We embrace the opportunity to continue building the relationship with ONIX Pickleball that has been in place since the inception of the PPA Tour,” says Connor Pardoe, commissioner of the PPA. “As the elite professional pickleball tour hosting the top players from around the world, we believe that the partnership makes strategic sense and is the best choice for amateur and professional players alike.” 

The PPA Tour tournament series offers the largest payouts in the sport and attracts the top professional pickleball players in the world, thanks to its exclusive player contracts which guarantee that the twenty best male and female pros in pickleball will be present at each and every PPA Tour event. In 2022, the PPA Tour will hold 20 events throughout the U.S. and Canada and broadcast all action live to multiple national TV partners and networks.
