Adaptive Pickleball has big dreams. We aspire to change the lives of people challenged by physical and cognitive disabilities. In our short time as a non-profit, we’ve seen first-hand the power of pickleball therapy. In order to increase our ability to change lives, we need financial contributions.

Your tax-deductible donation to Adaptive Pickleball, an accredited 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization (Tax ID 87-4286411), will help improve the lives of people with disabilities in the following ways:

  • Significantly increase the number of Pickleball Play Days
  • Provide more sport wheelchairs ($2,500 each) for players to use
  • Purchase nets, paddles, balls, and other pickleball equipment
  • Help fund the startup costs needed to run a charity pickleball tournament
  • Expand our reach outside of Greer, SC to all of the Upstate SC area
  • Develop an ongoing league for adaptive pickleball players

Please consider making a financial donation to Adaptive Pickleball. Together, we can positively impact the lives of people with disabilities through the great game of pickleball.

Adaptive Pickleball will work with you to create a fundraising event. We’ve done raffles and round robin scramble mini-tournaments as fundraisers and are open to your creative ideas. If you have an idea for how your pickleball group or organization can support Adaptive Pickleball, please contact us.


Our Round Robin Scramble fundraising events are perfect for pickleball groups who want to amp up their competitive spirit all the while helping Adaptive Pickleball make a bigger difference. This tournament format works best with 8 or 12 players with each player making a donation to participate.

In a Round Robin Scramble, players will partner with a different player in a series of doubles matches. Instead of playing to 11 points, we time games to last 11 minutes. The team leading at the end of 11 minutes, wins the match. We use match play scoring where players on the winning team earn 1 point each and losing team players do not earn a point. If a game is tied after time runs out, then all players earn .5 points. The player with the most points at the end of the Round Robin Scramble is the winner!

This group of 24 players raised over $2,400 through donations, raffle prizes and a 60/40 raffle.
