The All-New PickleUpper: A Pickleball Retriever that Attaches to Pickleball Paddles
Pickleball is a game for the ages. In fact, it’s a game for all ages and skill levels. From beginner to Pro, Pickleball is taking the world by storm. It is one of the fastest growing sports in North America with nearly 3.5 million players in the U.S. and thousands of players joining the ranks each month. Welcome to the PickleUpper blog. In today’s post we will introduce you to a new Pickleball accessory that is so small and so simple that it is hard to believe it can totally transform your Pickleball experience. It’s called the PickleUpper. It’s a pickleball retriever that attaches to the end of your pickleball paddle and enables you to pick up a pickleball without bending to the ground.
If you are an avid Pickleball enthusiast or even an occasional player, you probably have witnessed players kicking or hitting the ball on the ground to a partner or opponent to pick up. It’s not surprising since, unlike tennis where the rackets are longer and the balls have more bounce, there are few good techniques for picking up a pickleball without bending over to the ground. Over the course of a Pickleball session that means a lot of bending over. All that bending can take a toll on your back, hips, and knees. Even if you don’t have physical limitations that make it challenging to bend over, it’s a smart strategy to conserve your energy for the points rather than wasting it on picking up balls between the points.
Developed with input from one of California’s most well known Pickleball communities, the patent-pending PickleUpper is a small rubber attachment that twists on to the end of your pickleball paddle in seconds. It is designed to stretch and fit over all pickleball paddle handles. The PickleUpper has a suction cup on the opposite end of the paddle handle. To pick up a ball, a player simply holds the paddle from the top with the handle facing down, places the suction cup over the ball, and presses down so the suction cup grips the pickleball and picks it up. It is simple to use and completely eliminates the need to execute a full bending movement. The PickleUpper is precision engineered and ergonomically designed not to interfere with play and features minimal grip interference.
The PickleUpper helps prevent injuries, extends play by enabling players to conserve energy, speeds post-game recovery, and takes the enjoyment of the game to a whole new level.
The PickleUpper is available for purchase at www.pickleupper.com and on Amazon. In the near future, it will be available through other online venues as well as physical retailers who carry Pickleball equipment and accessories. For inquiries, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
