Rainier Community Center
The Rainier Community Center with six indoor pickleball courts has hosted a vibrant pickleball community twice a week for many years. It was closed at the beginning of the pandemic and only recently reopened its doors to pickleball players once a week.
Seattle Parks will close the Rainier Community Center from mid-June 2022 until spring 2023 to make the building ADA accessible.
Where will pickleball players be able to find public indoor pickleball courts in Southeast Seattle? Maybe at Jefferson, Van Asselt, and Garfield.
Jefferson Community Center
The Jefferson Community Center has been closed since September 2021 and is supposed to reopen in April 2022.
One can only hope that this community center will resume their indoor drop-in pickleball program as soon as it reopens.
Update: Pickleball is scheduled to restart at Jefferson on May 2nd.
Van Asselt Community Center
The Van Asselt Community Center‘s gym has three indoor pickleball courts with very little space behind the baselines. It hosts a community of senior pickleball players. At the time of this writing, Van Asselt is not listed as having any indoor pickleball available.
Update: Van Asselt offers pickleball on Mondays and Wednesdays.
Garfield Community Center
The Garfield Community Center started offering pickleball when it reopened after the being closed because of the pandemic. At the time of this writing, Garfield is not listed as having any indoor pickleball available.
You can find Seattle Parks’ most current indoor pickleball opportunities on their web site.
