About Us

Let's get real - when you hear "The Big Dink" you probably think of something entirely different than premium pickleball paddles! But that's exactly what we aim to provide - premium paddle performance without the premium price tag.  

You see, we're just a couple of pickleball addicts who got tired of the same old story. Either settle for a cheap, poorly made paddle that would crack or delaminate after a few months, or break the bank on an overpriced "pro" model. There had to be a better way.

That's why we started The Big Dink - to finally give recreational and competitive players alike an affordable alternative without sacrificing quality and performance. We like to think of ourselves as the Trader Joe's of the pickleball world!

Our flagship Model 2 paddle is a perfect example. We worked tirelessly with the same manufacturers as the big names to develop a paddle with nearly identical specs. Yet it costs nearly half as much!

Look, we're not saying our paddles will instantly transform your game into a highlight reel. You'll still need to put in the practice, strategy, and hard work. 

At the end of the day, our goal is simply to grow the game we love and share the fun with as many people as possible through quality yet affordable gear. We're pickleball players first, and we want to help our fellow dink-enthusiasts out there by providing premium performance without the premium markup. 

And if you happen to catch us rocking our Buy One, Get One Free Big Dink originals on the court, no judgment! After all, our name is literally “The Big Dink”.
