Here’s Cathy’s story …
Coming from a retail business and a fitness background, wherein I taught aerobics, dance and fitness for 25 years or more, jumping feet first “literally” into pickleball was just the next step for me. I had never played a racket sport in my life before being introduced to pickleball while living in Florida. So, my only claim to fame is really this: “If I can learn the game, anyone can.” I play at least six days a week, sometimes twice a day and I love to teach the basics to new pickleball enthusiasts.
And as I grew and continue to grow, my game has changed, and my paddle has changed and I constantly am seeking out what is new on the market, watching what the pros were doing and looking at how I could improve. Along with that was this desire to grow the sport with others, teach new people and provide premium pickleball paddles readily available for people to try wherever I teach and travel. To do that, I partnered up with pickleball manufacturers so I could educate and promote paddles to my player students when I teach.
Premium Pickleball is about the experience of promoting the sport through pickleball instruction and paddle education. I have expanded my sales presence by developing an on-line store with the same commitment to pickleball enthusiasts as if I was dealing with them one on one in person. Whenever I play and wherever I travel, pickleball is first on the agenda. I always have paddles and balls for players to try before they buy. I take pride in helping people choose the right paddle for their style of game.
Pickleball is more than just the game! It’s about the pickleball community, the clubs, the friendships and so much more. Apparel designing is a big part of that and was a passion from the very beginning of Premium Pickleball.
Providing fun pickleball apparel is as much a part of pickleball as playing the game itself. When you look good on the court, you feel good. And when you feel good, well, anything can happen! At least that is how it always seems to be. Our slogan is this:
Our apparel line has travelled to every state in the USA and all provinces of Canada. We are proud and honored to see so many of our shirts worn not just at pickleball events but in everyday play. We have provided logo shirts for various clubs, events, associations and tournaments – we love the feedback we get from pickleball folks!
Where are we?
We are located in beautiful sunny Sarasota, Florida where we can play pickleball outdoor all year long.
