PICKLEBALL: Petitioning for plates

(File photo)

If you’re among the many fans of pickleball, here’s an online petition you might want to sign: Local members of the Seattle Metro Pickleball Association are helping with the campaign to get custom vehicle license plates for the sport’s supporters. The plate would raise money to go toward a dedicated pickleball facility. They need 3,500 signatures expressing interest in the plate, to meet a state Department of Licensing requirement for creating a plate like this, we’re told. If you want to sign, you can go here. Find out more about the initiative – and how pickleball got to be the official state sport – here.

    If more plates like this can cover costs without forcing families and individuals to pay new taxes, I’m all for it.  People get something fun and support their interest while helping cover rising taxes in state.

    I would purchase pickleball themed plates if available. We travel a lot and specialty plates could assist with finding other pickleball players.

    A dedicated facility I’m all in. Dont have to worry about court lines and pickleball lines. A facility provides so much to the community as a whole. It draws folks from all over which can help local restaurants and businesses.

Sorry, comment time is over.
