As a part of our Baddle for Better Program, we recently had the opportunity to send some Baddle paddles to a community athletic association in South Carolina. Lake Wylie Athletic Association (LWAA) has started up a youth pickleball league and this year was the second year of the program!
We provided them with some of our junior paddles, our starter paddles (Saber), as well as several different advanced paddles. All the the kids were able to try them out at camps and open play nights that were sponsored by LWAA. Our contact at LWAA wrote to tell us: “The kids love them, they have really helped … the Vera Bradley paddles were a big hit with the ladies!”
Getting younger generations involved in the game of pickleball is so important as it can truly make an impact on their lives! We were very lucky to help out this youth league and continue to find other organizations like this one to partner with in helping to grow the sport and keep kids active.
