The exclusive partnership positions Acacia Sports, a major supplier of high-quality goods, specializing in pickleball, broomball, curling, and soccer, as the exclusive pickleball court shoe provider for USA Pickleball members.
Pickleball has great appeal with over 4.2 million players in 2020, an increase of 700,000 participants over 2019, despite the pandemic. Pickleball is fun, family-oriented, socially distanced and has cross-generational appeal.

In addition to offering member discounts, Acacia Sports will give a 5% charitable donation from member purchases to the USA Pickleball Junior programs, enhancing the initiatives of the organization to grow the sport within our youth community.
“We are thrilled to join forces with USA Pickleball,” stated Rashid Khan of Acacia Sports. “This partnership represents not only our investment in the future of the sport, but also Acacia’s continued commitment to empowering players of all ages and abilities.”
Members can look forward to seeing Acacia on-site, along with other partners, at the 2021 USA Pickleball National Indoor Championship held in Hoover, Alabama June 8th – 13th at the Hoover Met Complex.
