Foot Solutions, the wellness chain focused on improving health and relieving pain through expertly fit custom orthotics and supportive footwear, has signed a 10-year partnership with the Professional Pickleball Association (PPA). One of the fastest growing sports in North America, Pickleball is played on hard surfaces that take a toll on players’ feet and joints.
“For years, Foot Solutions has been helping pickleball players keep their feet and joints out of pain and healthy on the court,” states John Prothro, CEO, Foot Solutions. “This agreement with the PPA allows us to get the word out to the rest of the pickleball community—our experts are ready to make sure your feet interact with the ground in a way that optimizes your game, alleviates pain, and keeps you going strong.”

“The Professional Pickleball Association is thrilled to welcome Foot Solutions as the Official Foot Wellness Provider for the PPA Tour,” says Connor Pardoe, PPA commissioner. “The brand brings tremendous value to all pickleball players, and their products will allow athletes to play harder and longer, while ensuring their feet are taken care of after long days on the hard-surface court. Whether you are a professional athlete or an amateur player Foot Solutions is the solution!”
At each official PPA event, Foot Solutions will be onsite to answer questions and distribute various foot wellness related products. Additionally, the association’s annual tournament hosted in Mesa, AZ, will now be called the Foot Solutions Mesa Grand Slam.
Bryan Scott, Foot Solutions’ vice president of strategic growth, says that with the recent acquisition of NOENE (a shock absorption material placed under a shoe insole), the pickleball sponsorship is even more timely. “The NOENE material is at its absolute best when worn on hard surfaces,” he says. “We are thrilled that this partnership gives Foot Solutions the opportunity to share this wealth of knowledge, and help those get back to doing what they love for years to come.”
