Equipment Request

Thanks to the generosity of Selkirk and other paddle manufacturers, we can offer a limited supply of donated pickleball paddles to awardees. These paddles are excellent for beginner pickleball instruction and play. The items will be shipped to the applicant’s stated home address.

Approved grant applicants may choose to participate in the paddle donation program. Collegiate Grant Awardees may request 8, 16, or 24 paddles but must cover the cost of shipping: $25.00 per 8 paddles.*
