Pickleball.com is operated by OLLA, LLC - the owners of the Pickle-Ball, Inc brand and business.    Pickle-Ball, Inc. was founded in 1972 by the McCallum family who were the co-inventors of Pickleball back in 1965.  In the 1970's as Pickleball grew from a vacation home backyard game to a real sport played throughout the United States, our founders decided to create a company to handle the design, manufacturing, and distribution of Pickleball paddles, balls, nets, and more.  That company is now known as Pickle-ball, Inc.


We are proud of our heritage in the sport.  Along the way we've done a few things to help Pickleball become the fastest growing sport in the United States.  Here's a few of our accomplishments:

  • We've helped run or sponsor thousands of Pickleball tournaments.
  • We've donated thousands of paddles to schools around the country to help kids learn about this exciting game.
  • We've supported the creation of the USAPA - the governing body of Pickleball, and we continue to donate thousands of paddles to ambassadors to use to introduce players to the sport.  
  • We've supported hundreds of Pickleball clubs around the world, helping volunteers spread the game far and wide.


We operate our business with one simple rule:  Treat others as we would want to be treated.  This means we operate with integrity.  We tell the truth.  We strive to under-promise, and over-deliver.  We treat people with dignity and respect.  We work hard.  And mostly, we try to make sure everyone has fun!


We now operate from an 18,000 square foot facility in Kent, Washington.  The facility is home to the Pickleball Hall of Fame and The Pickleball Museum.  We have four courts that are open to the public, and we have an amazing 30+ person team.  All of our staff plays pickleball.  We laugh and have fun.  We dink, we poach, we lob, and sometimes we smash one really hard.  We have found a way to combine our love of Pickleball with our love for our community.


If you are interested in partnering up with us, or becoming an employee - please visit our contact us page and send us a note.  We believe the best employees and partners play pickleball.  Seriously.
