Supporting inclusion and access to ALL sports! Rock N Roll Pickleball is the home of the national Para-Pickleball program. “Rock” is for the standing athlete and “Roll” is for the wheelchair athlete; together we “Rock N Roll.”

We’ve been making the shots for years.  We are the creators and founders of adaptive pickleball, leading a nation of the disabled into para-pickleball potential.
Para-pickleball is for all permanent-physical disabilities. This includes the most severe disabilities and permanent-physical injuries such as Post Traumatic Stress Injuries (formerly known as PTSD) and Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI). At Rock N Roll Pickleball, your membership or club affiliation makes you part of a growing community of support for the growing movement of para-pickleball. Welcome and let us know if you are interested in learning more about para-pickleball.

Rock N Roll Pickleball is fun.  Rock N Roll Pickleball is exciting. Rock N Roll Pickleball is a movement that is taking the nation.   Rock N Roll Pickleball is for everyone.

As the creator and founder of adaptive pickleball Rock N Roll Pickleball (RNR) represents integrity in the sport of para-pickleball.

How does RNR represent integrity? RNR supports adaptive sport organizations, secondary or higher academic institutions and/or other public service, governmental or related 501(c)(3) organizations that help support its mission of inclusion and access to ALL sports. As part of our effort to maintain integrity in the sport of para-pickleball and to lessen the scrutiny that is often found by unsafe or unknowledgeable practices, RNR will not support any promotion of para-pickleball or wheelchair pickleball for any private or personal gain.  As the founders and creators of adaptive pickleball, Rock N Roll Pickleball continues to strive to maintain the integrity and meaning behind its creation, thus to include all permanent physical disabilities into the sport of pickleball including the most severe. For this reason, all RNR instructors may have their credentials verified by calling RNR. As the agency overseeing all aspects in the development of para-pickleball, including rules, guidelines, classification and competition structure, RNR is the only organization qualifying adaptive, para-pickleball and wheelchair pickleball instructors. For more information on becoming a qualified instructor, please see Certified Para-Pickleball Specialist.

RNR does not charge its para-athletic members and Veterans for its clinics, leagues, local tournaments or for a majority of its services. Any services that RNR may charge its members are usually discounted or offered alongside our Empowerment Scholarships. RNR relies on donations and grant funding for these services. RNR also works alongside many other agencies to help provide its athletic members with other opportunities within the adaptive sporting community. Adaptive sports organizations seeking RNRs support to develop a para-pickleball opportunity, may also contact RNR for help in obtaining supplies from our equipment loan closet.

RNR does not promote, partner or provide its expertise to any tournament/competition related venues unless such event provides a benefit to the athletes for whom RNR was created to serve or for other reputable charitable or service organizations supporting RNR’s mission of inclusion and access to ALL sports.  Please contact RNR for more information about our services or questions regarding collaborations with the RNR organization.  We would love to hear from you.

I Got Your Six Sponsors
I got your six is a military saying. In the military, “I got your six” means I got your back. The saying originated in World War I, when fighter pilots would reference the rear of the plane as six o clock versus the forward facing position of 12 o’clock. Today, the saying represents loyalty, cooperation and camaraderie often found in military culture even after returning home.
