2022 Humana Seattle Metro Pickleball Classic

July 20-24, 2022
Shoreview Park, Shoreline, Washington

That’s a wrap on the 2022 Humana Seattle Metro Classic! Five days of fun, sunshine, fierce competition amongst 600 players, 700+ matches complete, 228 medals awarded, and over $12,000 in prize money collected. Thanks to all who came out to play and spectate. And a very, very, special thank you to the 120+ volunteers who make this tournament what it is.

State Sport Celebration

Washington state Senator John Lovick sponsored a bill which designated Pickleball as the official Washington state sport in March 2022. We had a ceremony to celebrate at the tournament. Awards were presented to Senator John Lovick, Kate Van Gent, and Chuck Wright, who helped make Chuck’s idea into reality.
