Honoring Our Heroes: Introducing the Diadem First Responder Series V2 Paddles

At Diadem Sports, our heart and soul is with our community. We believe in the power of pickleball to bring people together and know that Pickleball (and Tennis) can move the needle in peoples’ lives. That’s why we’ve focused our value and our mission around “Live to Play”

In sticking to our Live to Play theme, we are especially proud to introduce our Diadem First Responder Series V2 paddles. We’ve doubled down on our first iteration - quite literally - by doubling the categories of Heroes and First Responders from our V1 series.  In addition to paddles honoring Firefighter, Police and the Military, we’ve added new designs for EMTs, Nurses and Teachers! We believe these community leaders exemplify the cornerstones of our communities - by serving us all in safety, health and education.  

To that end, Diadem Sports has designed pickleball paddles with a vision and with dual purpose: to elevate your pickleball game and to honor the true American Heroes who selflessly serve our communities and country. Crafted with precision and dedication, these paddles are a testament to our commitment to both the sport of pickleball and the courageous individuals who educate, protect and serve. Our mission is clear: to cultivate the growth of pickleball across the United States. 

We are offering two types of our USAP approved paddles. To honor Police, Military, Firefighters we are using our Warrior Edge USAP approved paddle. For our EMTs, Nurses and Teachers we’re using our Rush USAP approved paddle. Each of these paddles have been designed to be great for all levels of play and are designed to elevate your game. But these paddles are so much more than just great pickleball equipment—they are a symbol of gratitude and appreciation for our country's First Responders. With every dink, you'll be reminded of the selflessness, dedication, bravery and commitment of these true American Heroes.

What's more, with every purchase of our First Responder Series V2 paddles, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Tunnel to Towers Foundation. This esteemed organization provides critical support to First Responders and military personnel, as well as their families, ensuring they receive the care and assistance they deserve.

So join us in honoring our nation's Heroes on and off the court. With the First Responder Series V2 paddles, you'll not only elevate your pickleball game but also make a meaningful difference in the lives of those who sacrifice so much for our safety and freedom.
