Paddles for Plates presented by Buckley Roofing – Saturday, September 7th

Join us for our first ever pickleball tournament as part of Hunger Action Month in September. Thanks to our friends at Buckley Roofing and Chicken N Pickle, every team registration helps provide up to 500 meals for food insecure Kansans this fall.

Whether you’re a pickleball amateur, or a seasoned pro, every point scored counts in the fight against hunger. Each $125 team registration includes paddles & balls (or you can bring your own!), and a swag bag complete with a Paddles for Plates performance hat & $10 Chicken N Pickle gift card for each player, and more.

Register in our social play bracket (guaranteed), or with 6+ teams signed up we will add a competitive bracket. Spectators are welcome at no additional cost for the event, and we will have raffle prizes open to anyone.

Registration ends Friday, August 30th at 5 PM.
