Vlasic pickles has teamed up with athletic gear brand Sprints to create a line of pickleball merch designed to make your opponents green with envy.
Available for a limited time online, paddles cost $72 each, a visor or hat runs $32 and a branded towel is $22. Gear will also be available during the 2023 Vlasic Classic at Sawyer Point in Cincinnati from May 9-14.
Emblazoned on the items are Vlasic's pickleball-playing mascot Jovny the stork and jars of branded pickles:
"Pickleball is the fastest growing sport in America and Vlasic is America's favorite pickle so partnering with Sprints to bring to life a limited-edition collection of pickleball gear just made sense," says Caitlin Davy, licensing and partnerships lead at brand parent Conagra.
