1. Pickleball Lover Gift Set

Mark and Graham

Because you can't decide on one item, opt for the set. This one from Mark & Graham includes a pickleball bag from the brand's Sporty Stripe Collection, plus a set of adorable paddle print pajamas and a travel jewelry case because we always forget to take off our hoops before we get to the court.

Outdoor Voices

What if a bra was a dress? Maybe you never asked yourself that question, but Outdoor Voices did. And they answered by turning the fan-favorite Doing Things bra into a sporty, supportive dress. Made from breathable TechSweat™ fabric that hugs your shape while wicking away sweat, it's also designed with a full bodysuit liner with a built-in shelf bra, removable padding, and pockets. Pockets, people.

The brand that brought a fresh take to old-school golfwear is now bringing that same energy to pickleball, embracing all the younger folks rushing to the courts. The fireball design is a cheeky layer to bring to the country club, but the materials aren't fooling around—constructed from 100% combed cotton, the tee is meant to get softer with each wash. So get sweaty.

4. Tangerine Pickleball Paddle


Available in 24 bright and vibrants patterns and colorways, the Tangerine pickleball paddles make a statement on the court. Reviewers comment that the paddle is lightweight, functional and great for beginners.

Oversized Varsity Pickle sweatshirt
Varsity Pockle

As someone who personally lives in this oversized sweatshirt, I can tell you it's the perfect gift for the pickleball lover who also loves to look the part, but still retain comfy vibes. As the name suggests, this one runs bigger, so order a size smaller if you don’t want the oversized look.

6. Varsity Pickle Active Hat

Varsity Pickle

Yes, this hat is as cool as (cured) cucumber with its low profile mesh side panels and a flat peak in a cream/ecru color. The brand's Pickle font is embroidered on the front in dark green. Great for the active player or someone who wants to stash a hat in their pickle bag easily.

Champion Sports pickleball net set for gifting

Want something more permanent in the backyard that’s still lightweight enough to store in the garage? This portable net can be used for pickleball, of course, but it can also be adapted to different heights for tennis, badminton and more—it can go from 30" to a full height of 61”. The set includes a nylon carry bag for easy storage and transportation.

Georgie & Lou

A lightweight bag intended specifically for pickleball players to lug around their paddle, balls and any other accessories to and from the court with ease. There’s even a carabiner system so you can snap your bag to the fence and keep it off the ground.

Nettie pickleball gift set of 4 paddles

A genius family gift (and one that involves way less maintenance than a puppy), this bundle from a woman-founded company includes four carbon fiber-faced, honeycombed-core paddles—one of each from the Nettie collection—four pickleballs and four sweatbands so you can play all the doubles or singles you desire.

11. PaddleSmash


And you thought we would never need another racquet sport to busy ourselves with! PaddleSmash (which you may have seen on Shark Tank) is a basically pickleball meets spikeball. It's competitive, super fun and you don't need access to a court. The portable game only needs a flat surface. (You can even play in the snow!)

Pack of 3 Bombas performance socks for pickleball gifting

It's scientifically known that one can never have enough socks, especially quality ones like these all-purpose performance ankle socks designed with arch support, sweat-wicking yarn, and even blister protection. Translation: your game just got that much better.
