HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (Aug. 2, 2018) — Professional Pickleball Registry (PPR) is pleased to announce a three-year sponsorship agreement with HEAD Penn. HEAD is the Official Paddle and Bag of PPR.

PPR members are already benefitting from preferred pricing on HEAD Extreme and Radical series paddles, Supercombi bags and backpacks, as well as other pickleball equipment, including nets and eyewear. To kick off this partnership, PPR and HEAD are promoting a HEAD Paddle a Day Giveaway! Every new member who joins PPR between August 1 and August 10 will be entered to win a paddle from HEAD. One lucky winner is being chosen daily! In addition, Team HEAD exclusive paddle contracts will be allotted to a number of key PPR members.

“We are delighted HEAD’s long standing relationship with PTR is broadened by the addition of Professional Pickleball Registry,” said Dan Santorum CEO. “It was HEAD USA’s President, Greg Mason, who opened my eyes to the power of pickleball – the fastest growing sport in the USA. Pickleball is a boost for manufacturers, court builders, clubs and facilities and coaches.”

PPR is the official education and certification partner of USA Pickleball Association (USAPA). PPR combines the educational resources of PTR and the expertise of 5-time National Pickleball Champion, Sarah Ansboury, to develop courses and workshop materials in order to certify PPR members to teach pickleball.
