It all started with archery. Our knowledge and passion for the sport span nine decades. Today, everything is different and nothing has changed. We remain a market leader, crafting the high-quality, high-performance archery bows and accessories that field and target archers trust. And we keep pushing forward, bringing to market new technologies and innovations, from automatic sights to precision broadheads, empowering those who love the sport of archery to aim higher.
Our promise of quality is delivered by embedding innovation and craftsmanship into each game and piece of equipment to fuel perfect shots, epic plays, and stories to last a lifetime. Headquartered in Evansville, Indiana, we design, manufacture, and sell sporting goods, fitness, and indoor/outdoor recreation equipment that connects family, and friends, creates memorable moments, and lets you play life to the fullest.
WE ARE CATEGORY LEADERS
With leading brands in a dozen categories, Escalade is proud to offer a diverse and prominent portfolio ranging from basketball, table tennis, archery, darting, fitness, pickleball, game room, and billiards to outdoor lawn and tailgate games, and playground equipment. Our incredibly distinct and acclaimed brands include Goalrilla, Goaliath, and Silverback residential, in-ground basketball hoops; STIGA and Ping-Pong table tennis tables & accessories; Bear Archery and Trophy Ridge archery equipment; Brunswick Billiards; Arachnid and Accudart darting; Onix pickleball; the STEP and LIFELINE fitness products; RAVE Sports water recreation products.
Superstars have to start somewhere. Whether destined to compete in college or the cul de sac, home athletes turn to the Goalrilla family of brands to reach their goals. To brag on our own skills a moment, we’re the No. 1 market leader in high-end residential basketball. In other words, we dominate the driveway. That’s because our in-ground, wall-mounted and portable hoops are designed to stand up to countless hours of shooting drills or winner-take-all rounds of H-O-R-S-E. And when it comes to authentic, USA-made high-quality hoops, our Goalsetter line has no competition.
We own this space. That’s because we’ve been a key player in the fastest-growing sport with the funny name since before its popularity began to soar. Our Onix-brand products are versatile—they have to be to support a fan base that spans youth to grandmas and fun, social matches to professional tournament play. Our knowledge of the game, relationship with the pros that make up Team Onix and commitment to expanding the sport, makes us uniquely positioned to drive pickleball into the future.
Get on the water. In December 2020, we dove into the water sports and recreation category with the acquisition of RAVE Sports. Adding this business to our existing portfolio expands our powerful stable of outdoor and indoor recreational brands, positioning Escalade for continued revenue and profit growth.
A pirate ship. A space station. A treehouse high above the jungle. Our customizable swing sets, playsets and accessories make anything possible. The innovation Escalade is known for becomes “funnovation” when applied to wide-angle slides, climbing ladders, retractable telescopes and more. For our littlest customers, it adds up to hours and hours of fun, day after day, year after year. Parents love our triple-joint construction—the strongest in the industry—sustainably sourced cedar and other safety features, because they mean less worry when kids run outside to play. We have configurations to fit any size backyard, any age, and any budget.
Go outside and play. Spending time outside is what a fun, healthy lifestyle is all about. Escalade’s brands of outdoor games bring families and friends together and keep the action going all day long. Whether at the beach, at a barbecue or in the backyard, our products invite everyone to get in the game.
The stuff of (game room) dreams. Staying in isn’t boring thanks to indoor game equipment and game room table sets, from arcade classics to family favorites. With recent acquisitions, including the Triumph and American Heritage brands, Escalade is a market leader not only in outdoor games but also indoor games. This equipment is worth its weight in cool points helping consumers take their game rooms to the next level.
Aim for more. Popular from pubs to professional tournaments, darting is the ultimate game. Escalade serves the sport with a wide variety of globally recognized brands, making it the No. 1 market leader in the category. From Prodigy’s smart dartboard to Arachnid’s soft-tip darts to Winmau’s premium equipment, our brands set the standards that competitors aim for.
When it comes to billiards we run the table. When Escalade acquired the assets of the historic Brunswick Billiards brand in early 2022, it gave us a complete billiards and premium game room assortment. We already were the No. 1 market leader in billiard accessories, thanks to our acquisition in Cue & Case in 2014. We also acquired the assets of American Heritage in 2020, which marked our re-entry into premium billiards and game room market. Now, these three business lines, in combination, give Escalade a competitive edge in providing customers and consumers the ultimate billiards’ experience.
We bring it all to the table. Ping-Pong is the name everyone thinks of when it comes to table tennis. But resting on that brand equity is not what has made Escalade the No. 1 market leader in recreational table tennis. With Stiga under our brand umbrella, as well, we serve the entire universe of table tennis enthusiasts and needs, from friendly game room matches to club and league play to professional tournaments.
We believe fitness is not just about a workout, it’s a lifestyle. Our growing range of strength training, resistance training, yoga and recovery equipment empowers people to train harder, perform greater, do better—to find their personal best in the privacy and comfort of their home. Whether leveling up a home gym or setting up in one corner of a bedroom, our gear fits the space and the workout Everything you need. No excuses.
When it comes to innovation, US Weight won’t be held down. With roots in the fitness industry, we pioneered the concept of nonferrous weight sets encased in blow-molded polyethylene. And we’ve used that technology to expand our product range to include all manner of weights and weighted bases for functional recreational and commercial use, as well as visual safety barriers to move the crowd and keep people safe. Our interlocking canopy weights, for use everywhere from tailgate parties to farmers' markets, consistently earn top reviews for their simple, safe and durable design.
No one wins without a team. No one. Even athletes who compete in individual sports are driven by those who fuel them, push them, train them, support them, and cheer them on. There is no stronger team, than the employees at Escalade. Our team is resilient. We embrace change. We strive toward innovation. We support personal and professional growth. We value every person. At Escalade, we are more than a team. We are a family.
At Escalade, we don't wait for inspiration to strike. We make inspiration happen through an intense understanding of our consumers. This disciplined, ongoing focus is a must in our fast-changing, increasingly competitive market.
