Are you serious about Pickleball? If you are, then this is the paddle you have been searching for. Our new, 300A Graphite Series Pickleball Paddle with aluminum core is a power-hitter's dream. This lightweight paddle, with it's extended and wider playing area along with it's longer handle, appeals to a tennis-style, full-follow-through with top-spin style swing that drops perfectly into the back court. This paddle offers excellent control for those perfectly placed lobs and allows for an effortless transition to finessed dink games that explode with a full-swing slam down the middle.Read More

Earlier this year, we had the pleasure of introducing the First Run of our 200A Pickleball Paddle line. These paddles were something we hoped would become desirable in the future as a piece of our history and so like any good collectible item—we carefully numbered every paddle in this first batch of 320 paddles we ever produced. Now we didn't go through the extra (and expensive) process of having Lloyd's of London verify the numbering authenticity, so you'll just have to trust us that we're not going to sneak a few more "numbers" back out there.Read More

Well, it's time for all the "Year in Review" and "What's Ahead" type of blog posts to be posted—and we're going to go for a "twofer"—both subjects in one post. By all accounts, this has been a pretty monumental year for us at Selkirk Sport—even though technically speaking, we started the company in the fall of 2013, it was 2014 that will be known as the year that we were launched upon an unsuspecting Pickleball public. Truly a landmark year shearly by the fact that it is the year we began—and you always gotta start somewhere! And start (humbly) we did!Read More

We are incredibly excited to announce our latest offering for the serious Pickleball player: our new Epic line of paddles, officially and affectionately titled the 20P Epic Polymer Composite Pickleball Paddle, available in our most popular XL size. We've taken the same amazing polymer core from our 200P line and we've refined it into a paddle that provides all the touch and control, making it a great paddle at the net, while still providing the power of polymer in a lighter weight that allows for a power-swing that drops perfectly in the back court. While individual experiences can be subjective, we believe this is possibly the most powerful paddle for it's weight range on the market!Read More

Well, it's been a little over a week since the close of the First Annual Pacific Northwest Pickleball Classic Tournament in Centralia, WA, and we wanted to just follow up with a hearty Shout-Out and Thank You to Ken and Miok Lee and all of their helpful helpers that put on the largest indoor tournament (237 players!) in the Northwest and possibly the whole country (which we think that automatically qualifies for the whole world too)! Outstanding job and we look forward to an even bigger event next year!Read More
