Story of Our Founder

Greetings! I am Dmitry, the visionary behind Astria.
I appreciate you taking the time to learn about my journey.
Life has presented me with numerous challenges, from enduring an abusive upbringing and an alcoholic father to surviving a near-fatal 110-foot cliff fall, and navigating my mental health. Through these struggles, I've developed a resilience that has allowed me to protect myself from the harsh realities of life.
Astria was conceived as a means to extend this protection and empower individuals to remain steadfast and never give in, regardless of how difficult life may become. We encourage people to confront their fears and injustices, overcome them, and inspire strength in those who need it most.
Pickleball is the driving force behind our mission. Through our love for the sport, we aim to make the world a better place. By offering top-tier products, we are confident that your investment will be well worth it.
I am deeply grateful to everyone who has contributed to the realization of Astria. From our newest members to those who have supported me in my darkest hours, we, at Astria, aspire to reciprocate this care within our community - nurturing our family and allowing our family to nurture us in return.
Warm regards,
