ONIX Pickleball is the Official Paddle and Ball of PPA Tour's Baird Wealth Management Open
EVANSVILLE, Ind., September 9, 2022 (Newswire.com) - ONIX Pickleball is proud to be the official paddle and ball of the Professional Pickleball Association (PPA) Baird Wealth Management Cincinnati Open, a PPA Tour Grand Slam event. The tournament is hosted at the Lindner Family Tennis Center in Mason, Ohio, from Sept. 8-11.
To celebrate this great honor, ONIX is giving away five Evoke Premier Paddles online. Pickleball enthusiasts can enter to win online or attend the tournament and win one of 10 Evoke Premier paddles given away during ONIX player matches, including Matt Wright, Lucy Kovalova, and Callie Jo Smith.
In addition, ONIX and Pickleball Central, the world's largest company devoted exclusively to the sport of pickleball and the Official Retailer of the PPA Tour, have teamed up for another great deal. Attendees who visit Pickleball Central's on-site Pro Shop can receive a gift. Guests who purchase an Evoke Premier will receive an ONIX Stainless Steel Bottle—a $39.99 value (while supplies last). This is an on-site-only promotion.
"Our team is beyond thrilled to have ONIX serving as the official paddle and ball for the PPA," said Jay Simmons, ONIX Product Manager. "ONIX's motto is 'Play Your Best,' and we're thrilled that the best in the world will be playing pickleball with our balls and paddles, demonstrating both the growth of competition in Pickleball and our position as a leading brand."
"As ONIX has been developing gear to revolutionize pickleball, collaborating with them to offer attendees a free gift made perfect sense," said Pickleball Central's John Cowley. "Since its founding in 2005, ONIX has dedicated its mission to growing and supporting the sport at a professional level, and since our beginnings in 2006, Pickleball Central has shared the same mission of developing the sport of pickleball."
