Do you have any old pickleball paddles collecting dust? Donate your new or used paddles to para-pickleball.

Join us in our “Thank You For Your Service” Paddle Drive

Thanks to your donations to the “Thank you for your service” Paddle Drive, Rock N Roll Pickleball (RNR) has generously gifted the sport of pickleball to over 100 disabled, injured, ill or wounded service members and first responders. Your contributions will be needed even more as we begin to expand our services. Please contact RNR to see how you can help.

Every day thousands of our military and civil service members become injured or disabled. Thank your veterans and emergency responders for their service by donating a pickleball paddle. Many civil service-first responders take life-threatening risks everyday with minimal pay, little thanks and depleting benefits. All the while our military service men and women travel far and wide for their next mission.

Advances in technology have many soldiers returning home with injuries previously thought to be unsurvivable. Other injuries such as depression, PTSD and traumatic brain injuries (TBI) are invisible but just as deadly.

Donate your pickleball paddles to para-pickleball to give thanks to these honorable service members. If enough paddles are donated, permanently injured or disabled-service members will be given a paddle so that they may have fewer barriers to open-pickleball. Civil service-first responder includes law enforcement and EMS personnel directly employed by a government organization.
