Our logo

The concept behind our logo is combining the form of the pickleball with olympic symbolism. The circles are reminiscent of the holes in a pickleball, and just like the rings in the olympic logo, represent the continents competing. The colors, combined with the white background, can come together to create the colors for every nation’s individual flag. The federation aims to represent pickleball players from every nation, culture and background.
