If you’re looking for durable, American-made gifts for the pickleball players in your life, Google no further. If you’re like us, we welcome any scoop on products that aren’t just fun to receive, but are also better for the rest of us too. This is one collection you can feel good about knowing you’ll be helping your special someones look extra polished on the court–and that your purchase will also be supporting the communities we hold dear–all year long.
Pickleball is an equal-opportunity wardrobe sport. Which is one more thing we appreciate. This is a game that doesn’t require that you wear anything special, really. What’s important is that you’re comfortable, able to move—and finesse that dink.
A few of our favorite things:
Layer-love in full force. Perfect pickleball apparel for early morning or outdoor games. Exceptional side-panels provide mobility. Jersey-lined welt pockets and reinforced elbows for lasting wear; both big wins.
Made with 100% cotton, now in a long sleeve that's the perfect base for colder days. Incredibly soft from first wear and holds its color and shape, dink after dink.
Your favorite cotton tee is made slightly boxy and in a shorter length that’s perfect for movement on the court and half tucking after the game. Made from USA-grown Supima cotton, you’ll love the softer hand and body feel from day one.
French terry fabric in a casual fit. These shorts are super soft and comfy, but tough enough to sweat in.
When you love the comfort of high quality cotton sweats but need a bit more breathing room to bring the heat with your serve.
Lightweight whether stepping up to the net or out to brunch after the win. Slim fit, tapered leg, and ribbed cuffs ensure a perfect fit and flexibility.
Our simple, durable pieces perform well on the court, and off.
Pair a V-neck or long sleeved tee with cutoffs, layer leggings with a skort. Everyday sweatshorts or our Everyday Jogger pockets are convenient for ball storage—or your keys and phone. If you’re playing outdoors, a hat with a decent visor is key. We’re partial to our authentic ballcaps that offer a comfy, adjustable leather strap fit.
Other goods you’ll want to get for your game?
A pickleball game is nothing without the paddle and balls. You can find an unbelievable range of options and price points to suit your needs. Lastly Make your feet happy too with sneakers that offer support for lateral movement, and cushy socks. We love our American-made Ankle or crew socks with a cushioned footbed for extra comfort. Stocking stuffer socks anyone?
Not all gifts are made equally.
We work hard to make, stitch, construct, and manufacture clothes that are made right here in America, for those of us who want to help out where we can with the big picture. Durable not disposable. Stretch-friendly, and all-body-types-friendly. Breathable cotton, simple, quality-made construction. Hopefully you can see why we’re thrilled to offer the pickleball community a new kind of on-the-go uni with this new collection. In the spirit of pickleball, take it easy at the net and play on. It’s always pickleball season.
You might be thinking, “American Giant does pickleball? Huh.”
At American Giant, pickleball is close to our hearts for a few reasons. Sure, it’s trending. But it’s also a sport for everyone, it’s easy to find your way to play, and it doesn’t take itself too seriously (how refreshing is that?). In any case, we also love it because it’s one of the few homegrown-American sports, at its most-inclusive best. And it’s a whole lot of fun. As an American-made company, these are all values we can get behind.
