Help for Ukraine

The world weeps while the Ukrainian people defend their country agains the unprovoked Russian invasion of their democratic country.   

Ukraine is a member country of WPF and we would like to reach out to all member countries of both WPF & IFP to put pickleball politics aside.  Rif’s  travels around the world have convinced me that pickleball players are the most passionate people. They possess generosity by giving of themselves through their many volunteer efforts. Their love of pickleball has often been described as addictive, please can we all stand united together and support the citizens of Ukraine from the monster called Putin?  We wanted to set up a donation page here to direct donation to an organisation selected by the Ukrainian Pickleball Federation as effectively giving aid to Ukrainian’s whether they be refugees or remaining in their home country where supplies are already tight.  


Rif communicated with Alexander Abartyuk from the Ukrainian Pickleball Federation. He and his family are currently safe but it’s a very scary situation. They recommended that any funds donated go directly to the army as they know 100% of the funds will be used to help defend their country.  Here is all the information he provided. 

“Please I’m asking to support our army they are true heroes who fight back and keep us safe! I saw many of them today, they are our superheroes and we can’t thank them enough for everything they do, every life that’s been sacrificed to save our country, to protects civilians and get us peace. The information is verified.

Thank you everyone in advance”
