Fee-Based Drop-In Pickleball

Fee-based drop-in pickleball is open to both BIRC members and non-members. Sessions are divided into all levels, skill-level-based and youth.

Monthly users and non-monthly users must reserve a spot in drop-in sessions to participate. This is done by enrolling in the desired session. Monthly users can book spots up to seven days in advance. Non-monthly users can book spots up to three days in advance. Non-monthly users must call 206-842-5661 to reserve their spot. Max spots available is 20 per session.

Upon arrival for drop-in pickleball, users will need to check in at the front desk, confirm their enrollment in the drop-in session with the front desk, pay for the drop-in session or have the front desk mark their punch pass for the drop-in, and get a laminated number from the front desk to take to the gym to hand to the BIRC staff.

  • During fee-based drop-in, the first 30 minutes are reserved for social play — either two players on, two players off, or four players on, four players off, depending on the number of players.
  • After the first 30 minutes, Courts 1-2 will remain social courts, and Court 3 will become a challenge court.
