    Greetings, I am headed to Seattle today through Sunday. Any good tennis courts people can recommend. Raining for sure today and tomorrow, but Friday looks clear. Also if anyone wants to hit, let me know.

    Good luck --- there are very limited indoor courts in Seattle and generally you have to book a court reservation at least seven days in advance even if at a private club.

    The outdoor courts are also relatively limited and if the weather is nice at all they will be super crowded.

    I probably would not even bother to bring any tennis stuff this time of year to be honest.

    I don't live there anymore but did for a long time and organizing tennis for my husband and I was my second full-time job!

    I'm going to be in Seattle Friday thru Tuesday. I'd be willing to bring my racquet if we could find a place to play.

    EDIT: Sounds like Amy Yee might work for us. I'd need to play early morning before my wife gets going or it wouldn't work. I'll be at the Waterfront Marriott.

    Amy Yee has free same-day reservations, and if you book later in the 8:00 block, you should be able to find a court. I usually go there on weekdays at 8:00, as not many people show up after to bump you off, so you can get in a good 2 hours+. However, on a friday night, people might be willing to play later, so there might be a shortage of courts even after 8:00. But definitely worth a simple call to find out.

    Also checkout Sandpoint, which is supposedly a phenomenal facility, but is having trouble booking courts early in the day (from what I was told), and maybe later in the day as well.

    I agree with the above who suggested Amy Yee and the brand new Sand Point tennis center. Those will be your best shot to reserve a court. If you are looking for a live ball clinic, Forest Crest has a 4.0+ clinic on Saturdays at noon. $20 for 90 minutes.
