Our Story

PELLO Pickleball Paddles was born out of frustration. In 2021 I was invited by a friend to a pickleball party. I’d never heard of it before. That night, I fell in love with the sport. When I got home, I went online to buy my whole family paddles. I was eager to have that experience with them. I quickly became frustrated with the ugly colors, wacky designs, and cheap materials in about every paddle I found out there.


Since I couldn’t find what I was looking for, I decided I’d create it. With the help of some incredible designers and a Pickleball legend, Jarrett Chirico, we developed Pello. Not just a dangerously good-looking paddle, but a paddle designed to perform. Pello is made from Toray 800 carbon fiber, a stiffer material than the cheaper Toray 300 that most of the few carbon paddles use. You can feel the difference. You’ll know exactly what I mean when you play with one.
