Why you should join
- The Seattle Metro Pickleball Association (SMPA) formed to promote pickleball in the greater Seattle metropolitan area.
- We advocate for the sport of pickleball in dealing with local Parks departments and civic organizations, and facilitate access and opportunity to play for persons of all ages and abilities in a welcoming, inclusive and healthy environment.
- We differ from most other local pickleball organizations in that we don’t have ownership of playing venues.
A regionally diverse and active membership increases the bargaining power of the Seattle Metro Pickleball Association when advocating for more and better places to play pickleball, both indoors and outdoor, across the metro area. To date, SMPA has been instrumental in getting the Seattle Parks and Recreation Department to expand its pickleball pilot project from creating two pickleball courts by lining two underused tennis courts to creating twenty-four pickleball courts by lining tennis courts in seven different locations.
When you become a member of the Seattle Metro Pickleball Association, you will:
- Join a friendly, supportive, and caring community of players who are enthusiastic about playing pickleball and sharing the sport with others
- Add your voice and financial support to others who are advocating for additional pickleball facilities both indoors and outdoors
- Get access to our periodic information/news releases and Facebook page to stay current on events and places to play
- Get to use the SMPA discount code to receive a 5% discount on all orders at Pickleball Central. The SMPA itself earns a 5% credit towards purchases at that same store.
- Get to use the SMPA discount code to receive a 10% discount on all orders at Smash Pickleball
