Who knew that Evansville Indiana is a hotbed for pickleball? Let’s see a show of hands. Well, as the home of Onix, this southern Indiana town on a bend of the Ohio river has to be considered one of the important cities of the sport. Even though Onix has only been around since 2005 they have a very important presence in pickleball.

Escalade Sports owns Onix and some 40 other sports oriented brands and is probably the biggest sporting goods company you’ve never heard of. This gives them the financial muscle to have a robust research and development effort and a very wide array of pickleball paddles.

What Makes Them Different?

  • As a relatively new company under the umbrella of a relatively large organization, they get the best of both big and small. 

  • Bigger organizations can provide resources for research envied by smaller companies.

  • New companies are still nimble and not weighed down by old legacy brands and costs.

  • Midwestern companies like Onix often have lower costs of doing business than those on the coasts. These cost savings then can benefit the consumer in the form of efficiently priced products.

4 Products Sold by Onix

  1. Pickleball Paddles have quickly asserted themselves in the marketplace. With several series they have a line-up second to none. Their paddles are designed by pickleball pros who have the mission of continuously advancing the sport. With just about every conceivable combination of types of cores and face materials, they quite simply have a paddle for everyone.

  2. Balls are not an afterthought for this company. After two years of study, Onix believes their balls represent a significant improvement over others in terms of consistency of bounce and ability to fly straighter in outdoors play. By example, the holes in their balls are perfectly round creating more aerodynamic flight.

  3. Apparel is both technical and stylish. While able to withstand the rigors of a hot and heavy battle on the court, their designs make the player look good while playing well (or even when they’re not.)

  4. Accessories like pickleball bags are there to round out the pickleball experience with practical items to assist the player in having an all-around good time.

Who Should Buy Onix?

In addition to their bleeding edge product designs, they often are a value priced selection. Do not be confused by this however. This does not represent any compromise on quality of materials or manufacturing. They are simply priced a bit lower than their competition.
