DMPA STATEMENT ON THE CORONAVIRUS

To the Pickleball Community,
 
In full transparency, our organization has struggled whether to release a statement in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, especially as it relates to the Pickleball community. The divisiveness on our behalf sheds light on how difficult of a time this is. Should you play Pickleball right now? Should you not? As a group of sport advocates and not medical professionals, we do not feel equipped to advise one way or the other. Some of us have played outdoors this week, others have distanced ourselves from the sport. We recognize the health benefits - both mentally and physically - from staying active and getting Vitamin D. We are also aware of the strict social distancing that is recommended from health organizations in order to limit the spread of the virus. That being said, below are a few resources for your reference. We hope you find this helpful!

Paddle Reviews

This week, I had the opportunity to play with a demo paddle from Pickleball Central. It was the Selkirk Amped Epic X5 FiberFlex Paddle. It was a Standard weight (7.9 oz.) paddle, traditionally shaped, with a weighted head. I ordinarily play with a Paddletek Power Play Pro paddle so the larger traditional head and the additional thickness took a few minutes to get used to, but once I became familiar with the weight, grip, and size it was very positive experience. The polymer honey comb core...
