According to one of the consultants working on the Seattle Parks’ outdoor pickleball study, the tennis courts at Rainier Beach, Gilman Playground, and Alki will be graced with pickleball court lines this summer. This should give us 8 new pickleball courts at Rainier Beach, 4 at Gilman, and 4 at Alki for a total of 16 sets of lines for new pickleball courts.
Seattle Parks is planning to provide nets for these courts, as well as nets for currently existing outdoor pickleball courts.
The existing tennis and pickleball courts at Miller Playfield will be resurfaced this summer as well.
JULY 20 UPDATE:
Seattle Parks plans to buy semi-permanent nets for half the new courts at Rainier Beach, Gilman Playground and Alki.
In addition, SMPA and Seattle Parks will be buying a total of 8 to 12 more nets. Some of these will be installed at existing pickleball sites that do not currently have nets, such as Magnolia, Soundview, Brighton, Mount Baker, Brighton, Beacon Hill or Dearborn Park.
