Subway has unveiled the Pickleball Club, which will arrive in stores across the country on April 27. The brand teamed up with tennis legend Andy Roddick to promote the sandwich. Roddick will play pickleball against John McEnroe, Andre Agassi and Michael Chang at the inaugural Pickleball Slam on April 2 for a $1 million purse, according to a press release.
The sandwich showcases two of Subway’s newest ingredients: a new honey mustard and thicker, crunchier dill pickles. The sandwich is topped with Black Forest ham, double the American cheese, hickory smoked bacon, lettuce, tomatoes and red onions on Subway’s Artisan Italian bread.
“Subway is as excited as I am about the Pickleball Slam, but also how much fun it is to learn the game and be a part of Pickleball culture,” Roddick, the former world No. 1 tennis player and 2003 U.S. Open Winner, said in the press release. “Whether you’re a regular in the kitchen or have never even seen a pickleball court, the all-new Pickleball Club has the perfect mix of Subway signature crave and delicious ingredients to keep things fresh.”
Subway is a presenting sponsor of the Pickleball Slam, which takes place at Hard Rock Live at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida, on Sunday, April 2, and will be televised live on ESPN at 12 noon EST.
Subway operates nearly 37,000 restaurants.
