Swindon housebuilder supports Pickleball group

By Amanda Wilkins - 20 February 2024


Housebuilder Redrow South West has supported a sports club with a donation of over £500.

Redrow South West, who are currently building at Badbury Park on Homington Avenue, has donated £522.24 to Swindon Pickleball as part of its Community Fund initiative.

The fund, which was launched last year, provides organisations and charities with donations to help them thrive, with local causes encouraged to apply for their share of a £10,000 pot.

Swindon Pickleball, which was founded last year, is a fun, social and friendly club welcoming players of all abilities, from beginners to seasoned professionals.

Played in groups of either two or four players, the raquet or paddle sport promotes healthy competition and the chance to make new friends at the club’s regular meetings.

The funds will be used by Swindon Pickleball to allow them to offer a series of free sessions for new players, with the aim of introducing more people to the sport.

Shaun Jones, organiser at Swindon Pickleball, said: “We’re incredibly grateful to receive Redrow South West’s donation.

“The money will be instrumental in helping us share the amazing sport which is Pickleball with the local community.

“I’d like to say a huge thanks to everyone who has supported us so far, including Redrow South West, and encourage anyone interested to come along and meet our friendly crew!”

Sian Smith, Sales Director at Redrow South West, said: “We are delighted to have donated to Swindon Pickleball as part of our Community Fund initiative.

“We are committed to building thriving communities within the local area and are proud to support the club in its mission to encourage more people to get fit and have fun.

“Our donation is helping the club share the joys of Pickleball, while supporting local people to keep active – a double win for the team.

“We hope people of all ages and abilities are inspired to give the sport a go and who knows – we might find the world’s best Pickleball player is living in Swindon!”
