Today marks a momentous occasion for Engage Pickleball as we celebrate our 8th anniversary. From humble beginnings to becoming one of the foremost paddle manufacturers globally, our journey has been nothing short of remarkable. Join us as we reflect on our history, share fun facts about our company, and express our heartfelt gratitude to the incredible community that has made this milestone possible.

A Family Legacy:

Engage Pickleball traces its roots back to July 1st, 2015, when the Elliott Family - comprised of... Robert, Jodi, and their children Joshua and Rachel—founded the company with a shared vision of innovation, quality, and community. Today, eight years later, Engage remains proudly 100% owned by the Elliott family, a testament to our unwavering commitment to integrity and excellence.

The Birth of Innovation:

Our journey began with a simple request from Jodi to Robert: to create a paddle that would revolutionize her game. Thus, the Encore paddle was born, igniting a passion for innovation and craftsmanship that continues to drive us forward. From conception to fabrication, every Engage paddle is meticulously crafted in our USA-based facilities in Florida, with zero outsourcing—a testament to our dedication to quality and authenticity.

A Name, A Legacy:

The name "Engage Pickleball" was coined by Joshua Elliott during a family trip to a pickleball tournament—an auspicious moment that symbolizes our deep-rooted connection to the sport and our unwavering commitment to its growth and development.

Champions On and Off the Court:

At Engage Pickleball, excellence is not just a goal—it's a way of life. Robert and Jodi Elliott, alongside their daughter Rachel, have earned numerous accolades and medals on the pickleball circuit, including prestigious events like the US Open, Tournament of Champions, and Nationals. Robert's design prowess has been instrumental in shaping every paddle from the company's inception, a testament to his creative vision and technical expertise.

A Heartfelt Thank You:

As we celebrate this milestone, we extend our deepest gratitude to #TeamEngage, whose unwavering support and enthusiasm have fueled our growth and success over the years. To our dedicated community of players, partners, and advocates, we raise a toast to many more years of shared passion, camaraderie, and achievement. Here's to the next chapter of our journey together!

As we look back on eight years of innovation, collaboration, and community, we are filled with gratitude for the remarkable journey that has brought us to this moment. With the unwavering support of #TeamEngage, we are inspired to continue pushing the boundaries of excellence, creativity, and sportsmanship in the world of pickleball. Cheers to Engage Pickleball, cheers to eight incredible years, and cheers to the countless memories and milestones yet to come!
