Help support Veteran organization when you purchase a Camo Ascend pickleball paddle.
Jonathan Andrews (Jonny Pickleball) served and deployed as a Cavalry Scout from 2008 To 2013 in the U.S. Army. Jonny is now a teaching and playing pickleball professional who resides in Naples, Florida.
The camouflage Ascend paddle by TMPR Sports is a way for me to express my gratitude to all of those that currently serve, served, and payed the ultimate sacrifice to defend our country. I proudly served in the Army, deployed, and learned many life lessons both intentionally and unintentionally. I learned Loyalty, Duty, Respect, Selfless service, Honor, Integrity, and Personal Courage to sum it up.
If you purchase a Camo Ascend paddle, 20% of the purchase price will go to Pickleball For All’s Veterans program.
The one thing that was given to me in the service was always having a purpose and direction. When I got out of the service there were times that I felt lost and without direction.
Pickleball helped restore that purpose and direction. A Command Sergeant Major once told me smooth is fast and fast is smooth. I constantly think of that saying when I’m playing this great game, and try to be as smooth and relaxed as possible.
There are many other challenges service men and women may be facing when they get out. I believe Pickleball could be a great outlet, and a great way to feel like part of a family. I hope this paddle will encourage veterans, patriots, and current service members to try this game, and look at the graphics on the paddle as a reminder that we thank you, and honor you for your service.
