About the Brand

Diadem was founded in 2015 with a single goal in mind - to develop the most innovative, high-quality tennis products in the world to help players maximize their performance.

With a team made up of former collegiate and professional players and coaches, Diadem set out to develop new and exciting products that catered to players of all levels looking to elevate their game. In 2019 they decided to change the game again by taking their strategy and engineering into Pickleball. As their team moved from playing tennis every day to playing Pickleball they realized the growth in this new sport was here to stay.   
As the last American racket sports brand, all of their products are designed and developed in their global headquarters located in the heart of the hottest tennis market in the country - Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Their extensive research and rigorous testing process ensure that every product developed meet superior levels of quality. Through their combined 100+ years of experience as tennis players pickleball players and coaches, they have identified challenges in the industry where tennis equipment has failed its players and developed the solutions to overcome those challenges.
