We Are Pickleball.
Selkirk Sport is the leading manufacturer of pickleball paddles and equipment. Brothers Mike and Rob Barnes, along with their father Jim, founded Selkirk Sport with the mission to redefine the way the world views pickleball.
Since its founding in 2014, Selkirk has grown from an upstart with 10 employees to an energetic outfit with more than 100 team members. Throughout that growth, Selkirk has revolutionized more than 15 made-in-the-USA paddles, and added more than 100 athletes to its professional lineup.
Selkirk is headquartered in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, overlooking the Selkirk Mountains from which the company derives its name.
