'Nickelodeon Slime Cup' to Use Golf Balls Made By GBM in Ohio

On Saturday, June 25 at 8 p.m., Nickelodeon will deliver the Nickelodeon Slime Cup, a brand-new golf competition where golfers will compete in Pasadena’s Rose Bowl with a unique twist — they can be “slimed” at any moment.

Golf balls for the production are being manufactured at the GBM Golf factory in Loudonville, Dusk Jessop, plant manager and graphics designer, reported.

“One of our putt putt golf suppliers put us in contact with a vendor, Good All Day, which was seeking someone to produce special golf balls for the Slime Cup show,” Jessop told The Daily Record. “Casey Hendershott, also a designer, and I talked with the prospect, and I created the art and the plates for the printing.”

The order of special “slime balls" includes 351 dozen balls, which Jessop said is a relatively small order for the specialty golf ball portion of GBM Ohio, which also refinishes used golf balls for resale. The golf balls feature designs inspired by network icons such as SpongeBob SquarePants and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, as well as the Slime Cup logo with a slime effect.

“This is also the first order we will complete utilizing our new six-color printing machine,” she said. “In the past, our specialty orders were filled using a two-color printer. We have as much larger order for our new six-color unit in the works for Crayola, the crayon manufacturer.”

'Slime Cup' based on 'The Match'

The Slime Cup is a new production based on the made-for-TV golf franchise, The Match.

The hour-long special will feature four teams as they complete in a Nick-ified golf course to reach an unpredictable final round inside the Rose Bowl. The event will be simulcast across Nickelodeon, TeenNick and Nicktoons on Saturday, June 25, at 8 p.m. (ET/PT).

Slime Cup will include one-of-a-kind tree boxes, far-out fairways and greens, physical challenges, and lots of slime, promoters promise. Action will culminate with “The Unfairway,” the final hole where players battle it out to win the ultimate Nickelodeon Slime Cup, a Nick orange blazer and the epic honor of getting slimed.

Four teams will compete in the two-round tournament, including a professional golfer, a celebrity, and a Nickelodeon star:

  • Green Team: Professional Golfer Collin Morikawa; Actor, Host and Author Terry Crews; and Nick star Jaidyn Triplett (iCarly).
  • Pink Team: Professional Golfer and recent PGA Championship winner Justin Thomas; WWE Superstar Nikki Bella; and Nick star Isaiah Crews (Side Hustle).
  • Red Team: Professional Golfer Jon Rahm; NFL Superstar Justin Herbert; and Nick star Kate Godfrey (Warped!).
  • Orange Team: Professional Golfer Lexi Thompson; NFL Superstar Saquon Barkley; and Nick star Tyler Wladis (Fairly OddParents: Fairly Odder).
