About Pick-A-Paddle, Inc.
Specially Designed for Institutional Use
The high breakage rate of the paddle equipment and the cost of replacing this equipment put the activity at risk of elimination in some schools as supply budgets were squeezed. The development of the Pick-A-Paddle solved two problems. The paddles were break-resistant and durable, used for years instead of units. The cost of the Pick-A-Paddle was comparable to the wooden models and, in most cases, much less expensive to purchase. The paddles are designed and manufactured in the USA with materials made in the USA.
The Original Pick-A-Paddle
The paddles were first tested for durability at several selected sites before being sold in the marketplace. After the durability was proven, the paddle was offered to many high schools in the Chicago suburban area. The success of the original model grew from there. The distinctive design and the product name Pick-A-Paddle are now well-known in the physical education community.
The Pick-A-Paddle Junior
The paddle has a smaller grip size and can be handled easily by a younger player. Numerous games can be used to teach proper striking skills using a foam or plastic ball. In 1994, the paddle was first introduced in four colors—red, blue, green, and yellow. Currently, the Junior paddles are available in the Pick-A-Color Six Pack, with one paddle of each of the six colors.
