About us

How did you come up with the skullU name? Funny you ask... 

Our co-founders Juan Arraya and Patricio Misitrano have a "slightly" Spanish accent. Let’s just say that two words come out of their mouths, and anybody can tell that they were not born in Connecticut. Those who have met Juan also know that when he pronounces the word “skull” it sounds more like “school”. While working on the brand name, he thought that with our products we can “school you” and… Voila! A light bulb went off and skullU was born. A skull that “schools you.” 

Juan and Patricio
While the company is Founded in 2021 by Juan Arraya and Patricio Misitrano, this Argentinean duo have known each other since 1989. They might look like they are still in their 20s, but don’t be fooled by their good looks, they are getting old. After having been involved in the racquet industry for over 20 years, they wanted to fully engage into all the glamour that pickleball and platform tennis has to offer. Their simple premise? To give YOU, a fun, cool, top of the line paddle for a price that won’t break the bank.
