Anja and Angel met on the pickleball courts in Tempe, Arizona, at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. With businesses closed, kids home from school, and so much uncertainty in the world, they bonded through learning and loving the game together.
Angel, a retail store owner, and Anja, a marketing design expert, realized quickly that there was a need for upscale, comfortable, and fun apparel in the pickleball arena.
“Wouldn’t it be great to have shirts, sweats, hats that you can wear ALL DAY?” they kept saying to each other on the courts. “We’d love it if there was a clothing line we could wear for work zoom calls, to kids’ sports events, to a quick game of pickleball, and then off to drinks with friends!”
That’s how ALL DAY PICKLEBALL was born.
ALL DAY PICKLEBALL has become more than just a clothing line. Anja loves creating wearable styles that appeal to a wide range of players, and Angel is passionate about empowering young adults through sports.
“Pickleball gave us a new sense of fun and freedom during uncertain times. We are so excited to share our passion for the sport and spread our love of the game to others. Hope to see you soon at tournaments and can’t wait to “Meet you in the Middle!”
