TACHIKARA®, a world leader in advanced manufacturing methods and innovative materials for athletic balls, was established in 1915 and incorporated in 1920. The company’s name is derived from one Tachikara-Ono-Mikoto, better known as the "God of Power" in Japanese mythology.
Also, be sure to check out our latest innovation in tactile materials. Sensi-Tec™ was developed by Tachikara and introduced in 2003 also. We elongated, strengthened and added tackiness to the increasingly popular man-made composite fibers created to simulate natural materials through a scientific extraction process. We know how you feel, and think we have achieved the next best thing to leather. A touch you will have to play with to believe.
For many years, Tachikara has enjoyed finding its way into the hands of the world’s top athletes. We are committed to staying at the cutting-edge of design, manufacturing, materials and supply of innovative and quality products with unparalleled values always with avid players in mind. We’ve got the ball. You bring the game!
