The holiday season is here, and if you’re looking for gift ideas for the pickleball enthusiast in your life, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve created a round up of some of our favorite pickleball-related items that will help you make your holiday shopping go faster. And because pickleball is the fastest-growing sport in the U.S., going with a pickleball-themed gift should help you ensure you’ve gotten something everyone on your list will love.
Some of our favorites (and items we have on our own holiday gift list!) include:
Pickleball Skill Journal and Game Tracker
As you keep playing pickleball, you’ll also keep improving. With this pickleball skill journal and game tracker, you can create a baseline of your skills and track how you continue to develop. The journal also includes helpful tips on pickleball scoring and terminology, as well as sports psychology activities to help you enhance your mental and physical performance.
Set of Pickleballs
You can never have too many pickleballs, and they’re always a welcome gift option for pickleball enthusiasts. You can buy good quality pickleballs on site at Pickle Haüs, and there are also a couple of other options you might want to consider for the different types of pickleball players in your life:
- For the outdoor player: these LED light up pickleballs can give them the opportunity to play in the evenings
- For the serious competitor: the Heleus pickleball from JOOLA is designed for all-weather outdoor play.
Whether you’re just getting started with pickleball or hoping to play competitively, it’s a great idea to have your own paddle available whenever you want to hit the courts. There are plenty of pickleball paddle options that could be a great fit for any level of player. These are some of our favorites:
- JOOLA Hyperion C2 Pickleball Paddle: This paddle is a stellar option for competitive players who want to level up their skills The charged carbon design is designed to be lightweight and offer maximum speed. At the same time, the fact that it’s fully encased in carbon adds strength and stability.
- JOOLA Ben Johns Junior Pickleball Paddle: This paddle is a great option for young players, thanks to its smaller grip size and larger hitting area. The price point is appealing for families who are just getting their kids started with pickleball too!
- JOOLA Radius CGS 14 Pickleball Paddle: This pickleball paddle shape is inspired by table tennis rackets. This paddle is noted for offering a durable, textured face that increases spin.
Pickleball Attire for the Court
We’re not sure if looking better makes you play better, but having fresh attire for the pickleball courts can definitely boost your confidence.
Some of our favorite options can be found on-site in our Pickle Haüs pro shop, including this Wilson tennis skirt that was a fan favorite among the women on our staff.
If you’re interested in sporting Pickle Haüs gear, we have plenty of options designed specifically for you, including:
- Pickle Haüs Quarter Zip: Available in multiple colors, this quarter zip is great for wearing on the court or just wearing around town.
- Pickle Haüs Hat: We love a good baseball cap, and we have multiple options to choose from in our pro shop. For colder weather, we also offer a beanie in both white and green.
When we wanted to find the best pickleball bag to give as a holiday gift, we decided to look around at Pickle Haüs and see what some of our pickleball pros and pickleball enthusiasts were carrying. There’s a wide range of bag options available, whether you want something fashionable, something durable or both.
Some of our favorites include:
- JOOLA Tour Elite Pro Pickleball Duffle Bag: This spacious bag is top-of-the-line and has plenty of room for all your pickleball equipment. Some of our favorite features include the fence hook to keep your bag off the ground, the thermal-lined compartments to protect your paddle from extreme temperatures and the multiple storage pockets to help you stay organized. We love the color options too (you might have even spotted this bag on our Instagram – our pickleball director uses it!)
- 2-in-1 Pickleball Bag with Built-In Cooler: Looking for an affordable bag option to carry during outdoor pickleball play? This bag includes a built-in cooler, so you can keep your drinks chilled and accessible on hot summer days.
Portable Pickleball Net
“Where we’re going, we don’t need roads.”
That may be true (far be it from us to argue with Dr. Emmett Brown), but pretty much anywhere you’re going that’s not Pickle Haus, you could use a portable pickleball net.
You can set one up in your driveway to dink and have fun, or can take it with you on the road. We even took one to the Algonquin Founder’s Day parade (where we won first place for our parade entry!).
Court time is the perfect gift. It’s always the right size and it’s always useful.
If you have a teenager in the house, give them the gift of an experience together. Plan a group outing to Pickle Haüs, and you’ll be forever known as the cool parent.
Court time can also make for a great date night, especially if you make it a double date, play doubles and enjoy some great food and drinks during your time away (Another date night pro tip: you can’t go wrong with giving the gift of a nice dinner out in our restaurant!).
And, for the true pickleball fanatic in your household, you could go big and give them the gift of a season of permanent court time. When you book permanent court time, you’ll have access to a court at the same time and same day each week.
Learning new skills is good for your physical and mental health. So, you can give the gift of wellness by purchasing pickleball lessons for someone you care about.
They’re a great option for players at any skill level – whether you’re buying for someone who’s brand-new to the sport or for someone seeking to level up their skills. During pickleball lessons, the pros can give an overview of pickleball and help participants get started playing or can focus on specific areas for improvement.
Bonus Ideas: Stocking Stuffers
What else might be a good holiday gift option for your favorite pickleball player? Some of our favorite stocking stuffer ideas include:
- Pickleball socks
- Pickleball paddle tape
- Pickle Haüs Stanley mugs and bottles (grab one – or several! – in our pro shop next time you visit)
One last gift that never goes out of style – a Pickle Haüs gift card. You can buy gift cards that cover pickleball, golf and merchandise, as well as gift cards your lucky recipient can use in our restaurant and bar. To purchase a gift card, visit or call the Pickle Haüs front desk. You’re guaranteed to make your loved ones really happy…and they might even invite you to join them when they come out to dine, drink or dink!
Wishing you the happiest holidays, filled with friends, family and plenty of time on the pickleball court!
