Vlasic Pickles, an American pickle brand, is teaming up with Sprints, a performance accessories brand, to launch a limited-edition collection of pickleball gear for those learning how to slam or players who dink like a pro. 

The collection, available at Getsprints.com, includes a hat, visor, pickleball paddle and mini towel with original designs featuring Vlasic’s Jovny the Stork and the brand’s classic pickle jar.  

“We’re excited to bring two fun brands together that share a love for all things pickles,” says Tim Nangle, vice president and general manager, Conagra Brands. “Pickle fanatics and pickleballers can show up in style with the Vlasic x Sprints mash-up.”
