Paddle Candy partnered with Ellen DeGeneres and The Ellen Show team to make a limited production run of three super cool custom pickleball paddles to support the Ellen Fund, her BE KIND initiative, and the Ellen DeGeneres Campus of the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund in Rwanda. The paddles actually aired on her show on April 27, 2021. They were made available exclusively on www.ellenshop.com and completely sold out in a matter of days!
The first version of the Paddle Candy “Sea Turtle” Pickleball Paddle drew inspiration from summer days on the ocean, with its bright turquoise color. Both the past design and the current paddle supports the all-volunteer non-profit charity Sea Turtle Rescue and Rehabilitation Center in Surf City, NC.
