Seattle Parks and Recreation needs input on the future of pickleball in Seattle’s parks

Everyone is encouraged to participate in this short survey!

Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) is seeking input from tennis and pickleball players on how we can best support the growth of pickleball. Everyone is encouraged to participate in a short survey (https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/SeattlePickleball), whether you play pickleball or not, your thoughts are invaluable as we plan for the future of this sport in Seattle.

Your answers to the survey questions will inform how we:

  • Approach immediate improvements such as dual striping existing tennis courts for pickleball (for which some funding is available now);
  • Add pickleball lines to tennis courts during programmatic resurfacing and renovation projects; and
  • Develop options for future dedicated pickleball courts (yet to be funded).

This survey is part of the 2021-2022 Pickleball Study funded by the Seattle Park District.  An advisory committee is meeting throughout the study and additional community engagement will include two public meetings. Dates and venues for the meetings will be posted on the project page.
