Selkirk Paddles Shine at Celebrity Pickleball Showdown
As the leading innovator in pickleball equipment, Selkirk Sport was front and center at the star-studded Deep Eddy Vodka Celebrity Pickleball Showdown. The event, which took place during the prestigious Biofreeze USA Pickleball National Championships in Farmers Branch, TX, saw our top-of-the-line paddles in the hands of some of the biggest names in sports and pickleball.
Luxx Control Air & Vanguard Power Air Take the Court:
The Selkirk Luxx Control Air paddle made a smashing debut with basketball legends Jason Kidd and Dirk Nowitzki, along with NHL star Marty Turco. The Selkirk Vanguard Power Air paddle was the weapon of choice for tennis pro John Isner and world-leading golfer Scottie Scheffler.
A Night of Highlights:
The event was a pickleball fan's dream, featuring moments like Dirk Nowitzki's masterful ATP against Catherine Parenteau and Scottie Scheffler's friendly rivalry with Ben Johns. The audience was treated to a display of top-tier athleticism and competitive spirit, all while our Selkirk paddles provided celebrities the support needed for every dink, drive, and smash.
Pros Meets Icons:
It wasn't just about the celebrities, though. For pickleball professionals like Catherine Parenteau, it was a surreal experience to compete alongside sports idols such as Turco. The event epitomized the essence of pickleball: bringing people from all walks of life together on the same court.
The Deep Eddy Vodka Celebrity Pickleball Showdown was more than just an exhibition; it was a demonstration of the growth of pickleball and the role Selkirk Sport plays in this burgeoning community, providing the paddles that helped bridge the gap between legends of different arenas and the passionate world of pickleball.
