What do YOU think of the way the Seattle Parks Department operates OUR community centers?
The Seattle Parks Department has commissioned a consulting firm to rethink the community center operating model. Wouldn’t it be good if that consulting firm heard directly from pickleball players like YOU about the changes you would like to see happening? Now’s the time to step up and ask yourself:
- Do you think your community center offers enough indoor pickleball during the day? During the evening?
- Do you think it offers enough indoor pickleball during the weekends?
- Do you spend more time waiting to play than playing pickleball?
- Do you find that there is no place for you to play indoors once summer comes?
- Do you ever feel that, as a pickleball player, you are being treated as a second-class citizen by the Seattle Parks Department? By the community center?
- Are you happy with the new pay-to-play pickleball programs implemented at Hiawatha and Ravenna-Eckstein? Or do you think pickleball should be free?
- Do you have a better idea on how the Seattle Parks Department could charge for pickleball?
Please act fast, as this study is supposed to be completed by the beginning of February 2020.
- Tell them you want to offer suggestions regarding the Seattle Community Center Operating Model Study they are working on and let them know what changes YOU would like to see in the way your Seattle Community centers operates and why these changes are needed.
- Explain why pickleball is important to you, your friends, and the community you live in.
