PaddleSmash fans can now get the popular game at two popular retail sporting goods stores, Scheels and Dick’s Sporting Goods. The recently launched game that combines elements of the popular Pickleball and Spikeball experienced such a spike in holiday demand that co-founders Tim Swindle and Scott Brown had to quadruple inventory, resulting in record holiday sales for the young company.
- PaddleSmash is a combination of the popular Pickleball and Spikeball.
- Company co-founders had to quadruple inventory of recently launched game to meet holiday demand.
- Portability and ease of use has made the family-friendly PaddleSmash a new backyard game sensation.
“We are thrilled to see the success and popularity of PaddleSmash,” said Swindle. “It’s amazing to see how many people are enjoying the game, and we look forward to introducing it to even more people this year.”
Both Scott and Brown are veteran entrepreneurs in the toy and game space. Co-founder Scott Brown said that the company experienced 500 percent growth month-over-month, and they are on track to quadruple their revenue in 2023. The game is now selling in 47 states.
“We tested the game over several years before our launch, and while we instinctively believed in its appeal, the rapid success has exceeded our high expectations,” said Brown. “I believe the game is seeing such success because in addition to combining the fun and competitive elements of Pickleball and Spikeball, it brings people together in a fun and safe atmosphere. In a world where distance is easy to accomplish, and not that long ago was necessary, it has become far too easy to maintain that distance. But what society and families really need is personal interaction.”
In addition to the game now being available at Dick’s Sporting Goods and Scheels, PaddleSmash is still available for online purchase at PaddleSmash.com.
Launched in 2021, PaddleSmash combines the elements of Pickleball and Spikeball. The portable game is played in teams of two who play opposite one another across a central hexagonal court with a net. The brainchild of structural engineer Joe Bingham, veteran game and toy entrepreneurs licensed the game and re-engineered it for mass production, structural soundness, and portability. The game is currently patent pending. For more information, go to https://paddlesmash.com/.
