Tennis Court Reservations and Costs

Court reservations for the Tennis Center as well as the 100+ outdoor tennis courts in the Seattle Parks and Recreation system are made via the Amy Yee staff, or in some cases directly online using our registration system.

See below for City-wide outdoor court reservations, indoor and outdoor ourt reservations at Amy Yee, and special court times for teens under 18 at Amy Yee.

Reserve City-Owned Outdoor Courts (Not at Amy Yee)

Amy Yee Tennis Center staff issues permits for over 100 outdoor City tennis courts in Seattle. Each site has designated drop-in court use. When courts sites are not booked, they are open for drop-in use (first come, first served, 90 minute maximum).  Reservations must be made at least 24 hours in advance and cancellations must be made 48 hours in advance. If it rains, Amy Yee Tennis Center must be notified by email or phone within 24 hours and a credit will be applied to your account for future use in Seattle Parks and Recreation.

Reservations can be made for play on Monday through Sunday from 9:10 AM - 5:15PM on all 100+ public courts in the city. Once customers pay for and receive their permit, they are required to show proof of permit either through their phone or in hard copy form when arriving at their court. Permit holders are required to vacate their court 15 minutes from the conclusion of their booking. Last, private coaches and groups are to submit a return to play safety plan to be permitted for their booking.
