Here's the Parks Department final decision on mixed use tennis courts. Judkins park is actually a very nice tennis court, but again, it would be about 40-50' shorter than where we play now, plus it's in the south end, which I don't think too many people are interested in.

SEATTLE PARKS TO ALLOW DODGEBALL, BIKE POLO


AT ONE CAL ANDERSON PARK TENNIS COURT


Bike polo to be allowed at Judkins Park courts



Following a public process and a recommendation from the Board of Park Commissioners, Seattle Parks and Recreation Acting Superintendent Christopher Williams has decided to
allow dodgeball and bike polo at one of the two Cal Anderson Park tennis courts
for 18 months starting today.



The second court at Cal Anderson Park is for tennis only, and Parks will post signage stating that. Bike polo and dodgeball are also allowed at the two concrete courts at
Judkins Park, 2150 S Norman St., for 18 months. The Judkins Park courts are not
separated by a fence.



“We believe we’ve forged a reasonable compromise that will accommodate both tennis players and people who participate in newly popular sports and need a place to play,”
Williams said. “In the coming weeks we will work with representatives of all
these groups to draft a courtesy code that will make sure all players show each
other mutual respect and that they care for this public property.”



At the Cal Anderson Park tennis court, 1635 11th Ave., and at Judkins Park, dodgeball and bike polo play will take place on a first-come, first-served
basis. Players can call the Parks Athletic Office at 206-684-4062, to reserve
the courts at either park. All other tennis courts are for tennis use only.



At the end of the 18-month period, Parks staff will conduct an evaluation of the success of the arrangement, and will make a recommendation to the Park Board on whether to
continue it.

jeff and I are thinking the same thing. The final decision didn't mention hockey.

Learning experience. We don't want the small space. Something better will come up.

they only mention dodge ball and bike polo--not street hockey. would we even be allowed or would the dodge ball players try to bean us as we play?
