Free Beginner Pickleball Clinics

If you are new to pickleball and want to learn how to play this fun and social sport, join us for free clinics this summer (2023). The Seattle Metro Pickleball Association is partnering with Fielding Snow, a certified pickleball instructor, to teach you the basics of pickleball.

Registration Required

To keep the number of attendees manageable, only the players who registered in advance and signed the liability waiver will be allowed to participate in the clinics.
