Charge, the direct-to-consumer electric bike brand, has partnered with the US Open Pickleball Championships for the second year as an official sponsor of the largest Pickleball event in the world.

The internationally acclaimed seven-day competition draws spectators and competitors of all abilities from around the globe. This includes Charge Bike ambassador and professional pickleball player Catherine Parenteau. Last year Parenteau won gold in the Women’s Pro Doubles and Mixed Doubles Pro.

“I love my Charge bike because it gives me the option to pedal fully on my own or have the bike do the work for me. I use this function for interval training, and it makes for a great workout,” said Parenteau. “I also love to use my bike on my way back home after an intense weightlifting session.”

Charge will have a booth at the event where they will be offering demo rides, exclusive discounts, hosting a raffle to win a Charge bike, and more.

“Throughout the past year, we’ve continued to see the crossover between pickleball athletes and Charge bike riders. We are excited to be back supporting the US Open Pickleball Championships,” said Molly Harrington, Marketing Director for Charge. “Plus, it’s going to be great cheering on Catherine in person.”

Since its founding in 2016, the event has been held at East Naples Community Park in Naples, Florida, where it utilizes more than 60 courts, and this year the tournament will run from April 23rd – 30th.

CBS Sports Network will be broadcasting the Women’s and Men’s Pro Finals LIVE from 7:00 — 9:00 EST on April 30th.

About Charge Bikes

Charge is on a mission to fight for those who have been historically underserved and underrepresented in the cycling world. Our brand has been shaped by the frustrations we’ve experienced ourselves and seen others face when looking for a bike – challenges like intimidating jargon, an overwhelming number of product choices, and often, brands that only seem to care about men or competitive cyclists.  We’ve created a whole new electric bike brand that’s made to move you—in every way. We make a small but mighty line-up of stylish, comfortable, affordable, and durable e-bikes for people who want an easier and more enjoyable way to ride through the hills and valleys of life.
