April 11, 2023

OVERLAND PARK, Kan., April 11, 2023 — PickleTV, a new free, ad-supported streaming television (FAST) channel dedicated to professional pickleball matches, tutorials, interviews and original content, recently went live and is now streaming on Amazon’s Prime Video and Amazon Freevee in the U.S.

PickleTV is the only streaming channel dedicated to pickleball 24/7, and where pickleball spectators and fans can tune in for a variety of pickleball content from multiple leagues that highlight a variety of athletes.

“There is an increasing demand for pickleball content from pickleball players but, more importantly, from people that have never played the sport. The country is curious about this game called pickleball. A 24-hour channel will provide, not only pickleball matches but learning tools for new players through clinics and instructional content. It is the perfect time to launch this great asset to the sport,” said Terri Graham, Owner/CO founder of the US Open of Pickleball.

Pickleball is now everywhere and, over the last five years, has become the fastest-growing sport in America. According to the Association of Pickleball Professionals, it is estimated that there are currently 36.5 million pickleball players in the US. Astonishing when compared to the estimated number of players in 2021 was roughly 5 million.

Celebrities and social media have helped fuel the popularity of the sport with well-known individuals such as Lebron James, Tom Brady, and Patrick Mahomes all investing in professional teams and Jamie Foxx even sells his own line of paddles.

With over 47 major pickleball tournaments scheduled for this year alone, and over 10,000 courts to play on in the US, pickleball is quickly becoming a low barrier to entry, easy-to-learn spectator sport that players of all ages are able to enjoy.

The growing popularity and mass appeal are what led to the development of PickleTV between partners SPACEMOB and Championship Court.

“We’re grateful and excited to have partnered with some of the top tournaments, leagues, and talent to bring one of the most hyped sports in the country to the masses with our launch of PickleTV! Whether you’re an avid player, a newly interested follower or just want to learn about the hype, this is the place for you to consume all things pickleball including professional matches, player highlights, and more,” stated Danielle Bourassa, SPACEMOB’s Head of Partnerships.

Amazon Freevee is a streaming video service with thousands of premium movies and TV shows, including Originals and FAST channels, available anytime, for free.
