SELKIRK PICKLEBALL PADDLE is a lightweight, portable table tennis-based sport that can be played by players of all ages. Within this game, the racquets are replaced with paddles and the ball is replaced with a smaller, softer rubber ball.

Why is the SELKIRK PICKLEBALL PADDLE so hard to make?

Making a SELKIRK PICKLEBALL PADDLE requires hot water, canning jars, three teaspoons of salt, and pickle juice. But rather than spending your whole afternoon making it, there's a faster way to make the delicious condiment.

 Here are 3 easy ways to make SELKIRK PICKLEBALL PADDLE faster!

1) Stick It In The Well Of Your Cauldron

The first thing you need to know about making your pickleball paddle faster is that it needs a good "well" to be able to cool down quickly and efficiently. You will notice a big difference in how fast it cools when you place it in water. Now, you are going to want a certain amount of water in the well but not too much. Just enough to get it to wick (or suck up) the water rather quickly. For water bladders in the handle, you want a 1/2" or so thick reservoir of water in the well of your pickleball paddle. If you had too much water, it would cause the bladder to swell and possibly even leak out of it's duct tape seams. I would also recommend not over filling the bladder as it could cause an overflow. For other type of paddles, you might find that you need more water in the well depending on how much sweat is getting into it. It all depends upon how your paddle is being used and how it's being used determines when to add more water

The great thing about pickleball paddles is that they are a rubber bladder. And rubber bladders allow you to effectively "water" your paddle. If you are using a handle with a bladder, the most effective way to add more water is to dab the ball up and down. The handle would not need more water if it was just sitting there. But if you are using it effectively and it's giving you really good strokes, you should add more water to it. Here is how I keep my paddle as fast as possible while still maintaining my "sweet spot" on every stroke. I put the paddle in my dry sack and pour a cup or two of water into the well. The bladders are small, so I'd end up with about 1/3 cup of water. Next, I place the paddle on my chopping block to drain out any excess water. Then I move it back to my dry sack where I can add more water if needed. This process is very similar to what I do with my racquetball and squash racquets.

2) Hook & Loop Tape Is The Way To Go!

SELKIRK PICKLEBALL PADDLE uses hook and loop tape to attach the bladder to the paddle. This tape is very easy to use, stretchy, and strong. It also allows you to better customize your paddle. If you try to use a duct tape adhesive, the adhesive will run out and you will need to buy more. Plus, if you don't like the way it feels, there is not way to quickly change it. The other down side of using duct tape is that when you are trying to make your pickleball paddle faster, you won't be able to see the condition of the bladder or replace it as easily.

3) Use The "Parting Of The Red Sea" Technique To Make SELKIRK PICKLEBALL PADDLE Faster!!!

The parting of the Red Sea technique is really just a fancy way to say that you are applying heat and pressure to your bladder in order to make it shrink. Once again, I am going to take my pickleball paddle out and demonstrate how this works on one of the bladders. I have set my stove to medium heat and put it just under the boil mark.

Conclusion : 

You may have heard that you shouldn't put your pickleball paddle in the dryer. Or maybe you've heard to hang it outside on a clothes line or bush to dry it out. Why shouldn't you dry your paddle in the dryer? Because you can shrink it down so much that it will lose its "sweet spot". Also, if you shrink your bladder too much, there won't be enough elasticity for a good serve and for good striking of the ball.
