Where to Play Tennis Around Leschi
Leschi Park Tennis Court
Leschi Park has a single tennis court. From the business area, take Lake Washington Boulevard South, up the hill. Go under the overpass for the old Cable Car Trail, and you will find the tennis court on the left.
There are no lights at the court, so tennis is limited to daylight hours. There is a small backboard on one of the walls of the hurricane fencing. There is a small parking lot for a few cars. Since there is only one court, it is often occupied in good weather. There is also a restroom not far away, and the Leschi Market is just down the hill.
Also since it is an outdoor court, the court surface may be littered with debris, especially after storms or strong winds, so you may find bringing an old broom useful.
Mount Baker Park Tennis Court
Mount Baker Park has a double tennis court, with two courts side by side. From the Leschi business area, take Lake Washington Boulevard South, for about a mile and a half.
Go under the I-90 bridge, and continue to the Mount Baker Beach. Turn right at Lake Park Drive South, which is right across the street from the swimming area.
Follow the road through the old trees and you will find the tennis court on the right. There is a small parking lot for a few cars. There are lights at the court, so you can play after dark. Miop
