Help Us Help You!

Give a little (or a lot) of your time to the pickleball community by volunteering with the Seattle Metro Pickleball Association to help it execute its mission.

Thank you

We are so grateful for the current Seattle Metro Pickleball Association volunteers who help us execute on our vision of “More Courts, More Play” by working hard to organize play of all kinds, maintaining the courts, communicating with Parks officials and generally spreading the word about pickleball. You are the real MVPs (Most Valuable Picklers)! Your hard work and dedication are unmatched and appreciated. Thank you for being awesome!

Let’s Do More

As pickleball grows exponentially, there is so much more that the Seattle Metro Pickleball Association would like to do to execute on its quadruple mission of:

  • Growing the profile of pickleball in our region and the community of people working together to help it to flourish,
  • Engaging with individuals and governmental bodies to improve and expand public pickleball facilities across the region,
  • Empowering Play by providing expertise, equipment, and other material resources to enable well-run, inclusive organized play opportunities,
  • Building the dedicated pickleball facilities that our region deserves and that generations to come will enjoy.
At an Intro to Pickleball event, SMPA members Tom Grubb and Terry Cullen show how to play.

We Need You

To do it all, we will need your help. We have created a list of new volunteering opportunities and made it easy for you to let us know which of those sounds fun and express your interest. The time commitment and duration with each volunteer opportunity will vary. As a volunteer, you can put in as few or as many hours as your availability permits. Please take a look at our Volunteer Form, see if any area appeals to you, and let us know what we missed.

Volunteering is a great way to make a positive difference in the world and have fun at the same time. You will make new friends, learn new skills, and feel good about helping others. So don’t hesitate. You won’t regret it!
