Frankin Court projects for 2022

Franklin Court projects for 2022

We will have need of our great group of volunteers again this year. We plan to repair the cracks and repaint the courts. This will start in early June and we will do 1/2 of the courts at a time leaving the others open for play. Everyone can help, here is a list of tasks we will need help with. If you want to help send a message with the “Contact Us” link from the menu on the top of the page.

  • Removing weeds and debris
  • Washing the courts
  • Filling cracks with puddy knife and sanding
  • Brush painting under all the fences
  • Main pour painting and spreading. Need mixing crew and painters
  • Taping and painting lines.

Yakima Applefest Pickleball Tournament

We are planning to have Applefest again this year on September 16-18. This will open for registration on PickleballTournaments.com starting June 8, 2022. We’re planning on more fun, more players, more food and less rain.

Club play at Franklin Park

We encourage everyone to use the free website called Playtime Scheduler where you will find planned play times and events. AND you can add your own play time looking for players to sign up. That could be for drills or play as you wish. This is not for scheduling a court – courts may not be reserved. But, this helps us all to get together and to know when we might find people to play with. If you see a time you plan to added, click on that event add your name.

When courts are full it is everyone’s responsibility to politely explain how court rotation works, at Franklin as well as about any other pickleball facility in the country. No camping out on a court, everyone gets to play one game and then relinquish the court and get back in line.
