Action Alert: Ask Kirkland Parks for more pickleball courts
As far as we know, there are no public indoor or outdoor pickleball courts in Kirkland (just ask Gil!), except for a lonely court painted on the Everest Park tennis court.
The City of Kirkland is currently inviting all community members to attend a workshop on June 4, 5 or 6 that will help identify the community’s values on how to fund parks, community services and recreation programs as the Parks and Community Services Department plans for the future.
Pickleball players need to attend these workshops and lobby for more opportunities to play pickleball indoors and outdoors. Just be your usual self, polite and persistent, pointing out the lack of opportunities to play this fast growing sport for all ages. You DO NOT need to be a resident to attend, just a user of Kirkland parks. Please contact the Parks Customer Service staff at 425-587-3300 to RSVP for attendance, or sign up online at www.kirklandparks.net.
If you cannot attend any of the meetings, you can still send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Please spread the word.
