Not every company can be in the crowded and competitive racquet business. Somebody has to be in the business of manufacturing all the other products making tennis the fun sport it is. Gamma is that company and now it is producing world-class pickleball paddles too. From their headquarters in Pittsburgh, this American success story continues to innovate and improve products used by most every player involved in racquet sports today.

Founded in 1975 by a nuclear engineer who was tired of playing with inferior strings, this company was an immediate sensation with its gut strings. Using a unique production technique, Gamma strings are multi-year, multi-decade award winners. From this success, they branched out into numerous other products enhancing the playing experience.


Gamma’s Tennis Products

  • The wildly popular strings lead an array of products like wristbands making the life of a tennis player way better. Who knew that irradiating animal intestines would lead to so much improved play? 

  • If you’ve ever been told to “get a grip” someone may have been referring you to Gamma. The array of grips is impressive. Overgrips, replacement grips, and grip tape all with multiple colors, sizes and characteristics create a dominant position.

  • Training and lesson gear is important too. Nets, ball hoppers,center straps, many teaching aids, kid’s low compression balls, and many other items improve the tennis experience.

  • For the enthusiastic stringer and/or the pro running a business, their stringing machines are world class. Starting with moderate prices, these can run into thousands of dollars. Want a cover to protect your investment? Got those too along with the tools necessary for a first class string job.


Gamma’s Pickleball Products

  • They make a number of different products like accessories, balls, and clothing. Notably too, their grips are often used on competitors’ paddles. 

  • The paddles are where they are really making a name. See our Pickleball Paddle Buying Guide for advice on how to pick what is right for you. There are different models for most players:

    • Lightweight models: with either graphite or fiberglass faces, these models are aimed at the beginner or newer player. Easier to swing paddles mean better control but might not have the power needed by some.These paddles weigh less than 7.5 oz.

    • Mid-weight models: with the poly NeuCore technology, these will provide both touch and power in well balanced models. Gamma classifies paddles up to 7.9 oz. as midweights.

    • Heavyweight models: really aimed at the advanced or pro player, these weigh over 8 oz. and will improve hard driving players with the strength to muscle these weapons. 


Who should buy Gamma?

  • Clearly the pickleball player looking for innovation should consider Gamma.

  • Tennis players looking for the finest grips and strings simply must look at their traditionally strong offerings.
