๐Ÿšจ Joola Gen 3 News

On May 15, 2024, JOOLA was informed by USA Pickleball (USAP) of their decision to remove the Gen3 paddles from the Approved Paddle list.ย  After a review of USAPโ€™s preliminary findings last week, we believe USAPโ€™s decision to remove the Gen3 paddles from the approved list was based on an administrative error by JOOLA in November 2023 as part of USAPโ€™s similarity testing protocols. JOOLA was only able to confirm the precise issue last week and responded immediately to quickly resolve the matter.

The JOOLA Gen3 paddles on the market are materially the same as the models approved by USAP in the September 2023 paddle submission process and we are confident that they are fully compliant with USAPโ€™s standards.

Since entering the pickleball community in 2022, JOOLA has consistently and successfully worked within the USAP standards and process to approve over 40 paddles currently being used around the world.

USAP has not provided a timeline of when the process will be completed, however we are committed to working with USAP to resolve this matter as quickly as possible. We will continue to inform you as new information becomes available and regret any inconvenience.
