In yet another sign of the growing mainstream appeal of pickleball, none other than trendy shoe brand Skechers has been named the official footwear sponsor of the US Open Pickleball Championships.

Under the multi-year partnership, Skechers will be providing footwear to all volunteer captains at the event and will be onsite at the tournament with an Expo booth.

Also in support of the partnership, Skechers will be launching a range of Skechers Pickleball footwear for men and women at the event that starts April 23, 2022 in Naples, FL.

“Pickleball adds another pillar to our established running, golf and performance walking business. This sport is easy to learn and great for families, so footwear featuring our advanced comfort technologies will be a perfect fit for casual and competitive athletes alike,” says Skechers president Michael Greenberg. “Launching our new pickleball shoe at a marquee event like the US Open is sure to make an impression on the court. We’re dedicated to this sport and believe its popularity will continue to expand.”

“Bringing on board one of the largest footwear brands on the planet is key to our strategic plans of elevating the sport and the US Open to the next level,” adds Terri Graham, co-founder of the US Open Pickleball Championships. “As our official footwear sponsor, we know that Skechers will help introduce fans of their comfortable and innovative styles to the fun, exciting and competitive world of pickleball.”
