Hi, my name is Richard and I’m the President of Sport Squad, Inc. Over 15 years ago, I started Sport Squad to develop and create high-quality sporting goods. Our brand, JOOLA, is one of the leading names in both recreational and professional table tennis.
We are a US-based company with headquarters in Rockville, MD and main warehouse distribution in California. We also have offices in Germany, Brazil, and Shenzhen, China – one of the world’s largest manufacturing hubs.
We are working to make millions of face masks available to Americans to help flatten the curve. You may be wondering: why would a sporting goods company venture into the world of medical devices?
Several weeks ago, my sister, a physician, reached out to see if Sport Squad/JOOLA could help with the dire personal protective equipment (PPE) shortages facing healthcare workers across the US. My sister connected me to both healthcare workers and systems, and I mobilized my teams to get PPE out to our frontline workers and continue to do so.
The ongoing COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic has undoubtedly transformed our lives. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention now recommends that Americans wear face coverings to slow the spread of the virus and help people who may have the virus and do not know it from transmitting it to others.
We have had success in getting PPE to health care institutions and want to do the same with face masks for the general public. The high-quality, single-use face masks we have sourced have undergone and passed extensive effectiveness and quality testing. They are proven to meet American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) Level 1 standards.
We are committed to getting them to people quickly at accessible prices. Please help us get the word out, so we can help as many people as possible!
