Pickleball Headquarters is a division of Softball's R Game

Softball's R Game is a family owned store. My daughter Teresa and I run the store, with help from our friends and fellow softball and pickleball players. 

I started the softball store 10 years ago because here in central florida because the closest sporting goods store was 50 miles away in Orlando.

I play and coach on the ladies softball team and purchasing softball equipment in the winter was only available online. The local big box stores did not carry softball equipment in the Winter..

That's when we play.  

So I took the plunge and opened " Softball's R Game.

 About 4 years ago my softball players started asking me to carry  pickleball paddles, because the only place you could by them was online or from a few local individuals selling paddles from the trunk of their car. 

I started by carrying 1 brand Onix.

Now I have Onix, Pickleball Inc, Pickleball Now, Pro-lite, Pop Paddles, Pac Paddles, Wilson, ZZT Paddles, Selkirk, Paddletek, Whippersnapper, Encore Paddles and Gamma.

I have over 40 different styles of paddles in stock. We have graphite, composite, polypropolyne, aluminum, carbon fiber and kevlar core pickleball paddles.

I have added court shoes and Pickleball Rocks shirts. I am always looking for more products for my pickleball  players and encourage suggestion from my players. 

If you are in central florida near The Villages, Stop buy and say Hi. 

We always have candy and sometimes popcorn.
