Starting with the 2024 PPA Pro Tour, new-ball protocols will align with those of major sports. Each pro match will feature new, fresh balls, ensuring consistent and optimal game quality.
With this in mind, The Professional Pickleball Association (PPA Tour) has declared Vulcan Sporting Goods Co. as the new supplier of their official PPA Pro Tour ball.
Vulcan VPRO FLIGHT Pickleball
The Vulcan VPRO FLIGHT Pickleball will debut as the official ball during the first pro tour stop of the year, The Hyundai Masters in Palm Springs, from January 9-14, 2024.
This ball’s characteristics include speed, liveliness, resilience, excellent feel, aerodynamic flight, a consistent bounce, and top-notch spin performance. In fast-paced rallies and gripping exchanges, the Vulcan VPRO FLIGHT ball contributes to ensuring that the superior player prevails.
Introducing the brand new official ball of the PPA Tour: The Vulcan VPRO Flight Outdoor Pickleball. Vulcan uses the best technology for modern pro play, roto-molding each all in one piece for top-notch performance on the court!
“The New Gold Standard”
Connor Pardoe, Founder and CEO of the PPA Tour, remarked, “Vulcan’s VPRO FLIGHT is the new gold standard in pickleball, and we’re thrilled to utilize the ball at all PPA Tour events from here on out.
“We worked collaboratively with Vulcan, who truly created an elite ball that will allow our pros to play their game in the most competitive and entertaining way possible. It is a great ball for all top-level players where performance and playability come first.”
“We Are Making The Sport Better”
Vince Signorelli, CEO of Vulcan, was equally enthusiastic, stating, “It is a new day in pickleball and a special one. The PPA Tour is the single most important entity leading our sport. I am proud that our brand has been a tour supporter since its inception.
“We worked very hard to design and develop this great ball, and together with the PPA Tour, we are making the sport better.”
Major Retail Outlets
The ball won’t be on sale at specialty retail until March 2024 and you’ll have to wait until summer to find them in major retail outlets.
The balls are packaged in three-ball sleeves, 36-ball cases, and 144-ball master cartons. Additionally, they will be available in bulk in large institution/tournament boxes.
Other dealers and major retailers can pre-order inventory starting January 16, 2024.
Plastic isn’t necessarily the right way to go with the future manufacture of pickleball. We discuss the alternatives in this article. At $23.99 for six and $349.99 for 100 balls, this new ball is certainly not cheap either.
