Let’s Keep In Touch

About ten times a year, we publish a newsletter that brings you the latest Seattle Metro area pickleball news. Subscribe so you know what’s going on.

Help us help you

Public pickleball courts don’t germinate spontaneously. They begin with someone planting a seed in a Parks Department city-wide planning process. Then we (that’s you, SMPA Directors, and other vigilant members) tend the seed by helping the Parks Department get in touch with prospective users of pickleball courts, to gather the evidence of community support they need. Sometimes we need to enlist the help of a supervising entity such as an oversight board or a city council.

Anytime we need you to help a Parks Department move the process along, maybe by filling in a survey or showing up with your paddle at a public hearing, we’ll send you an Action Alert. Don’t worry, you won’t see a deluge of requests coming from us.
