We recently did a ball survey at the pickleball courts featuring our current club ball (Franklin X40) and the new Selkirk Pro S1 ball.
First a little history. This year we have spent more than $10,000 on balls and we typically go through @5,000 to 6,000 balls each year. We have tried almost every ball out there. Our current ball cost between $2 – 3.50 a ball depending on the vendor with NO replacement policy.
Selkirk has offered to sponsor the club with an offer of $1.25 per ball and a 1-year broken ball replacement program. We have purchased 1000 of the Selkirk Pro S1 balls and Selkirk donated 400 balls, a new Luxx paddle for the raffle and some other items for our recent in-house tournament.
During the week of November 26 through December 3, we put out 180 of the Franklin X40 balls and collected the broken balls. The temps for the week ranged from 44 – 74 degrees. At the end of the week, we had 112 broken balls.
For the week of December 4 through 10, we put out 100 of the new Selkirk Pro S1 balls and again the temps for us were between 44 – 74 degrees. At the end of this week, there was a total of 1 broken ball.
Now that we have been using the new Selkirk Pro S1 balls for almost 2 weeks, Selkirk is asking us to provide feedback on how we like/dislike the new ball in a simple survey. Please click on the link below and fill out the survey and please be honest.
The name on the survey form says Robson Ranch Pickleball Club Feedback but it is for us, so don’t let that stop you from completing the form. Selkirk will provide us with the survey results.

See you around the courts.
