Our New Paddle Evaluation Program

Exciting News! We have just entered into an agreement with Pickleball Central whereby in exchange for providing multiple honest player reviews of new paddles we are entitled to keep those paddles for our group’s use. And the first paddle has already arrived! It’s the Selkirk Epic Amped, weighing in at 7.9 ounces. Check it out here:

You can also check the reviews of some of our own players regarding this paddle on our website at the following link:

Selkirk Amped Epic Reviews

The criteria for participating in this Paddle Demo and Review Program are as follows:

Within two weeks after receiving each new evaluation paddle we are to post player reviews of 250-500 words on our website on a new page entitled NEW PADDLE DEMO PROGRAM under the “PLAY” tab. We will limit the posted reviews to no more than four for each paddle. Each review must meet the requirements provided by Pickleball Central. (See requirements attached below). It is hoped that each reviewer will agree to being photographed holding the paddle reviewed with the reviewer’s name and photo posted with their review. (Reviewer names and/or photos are not required and will not be used without permission.)

We would love to have you participate in this program! If you would like to be included in this Paddle Review Program please contact JB Marr at

After the formal evaluation and review process is over the paddles will become available for everyone to use. We just need to establish a procedure to ensure security for and availability of the paddles.

See you on the courts.
