R.I.S.E. stands for Renewel, Improvement and Space Expansion. TOPs Eastside Tennis Center is at a unique opportunity in its history. After our first successful decade, we renewed our lease with a long-term extension. With your help, we will transform this special place to reach its full potential with the R.I.S.E Capital Campaign.

  • Despite serving 2,500 unique students annually at TOPs locations, ETC has very large waiting lists daily for ages 8-18

  • One additional standard court adds 16% more capacity ETC for prime-time junior hours

  • Help us get more youth active in these important years and develop more self confidence and instill TOPs S.P.I.R.I.T values.

More Court Space = More Youth Served
  • R.I.S.E. plan - the newly added singles tennis court, will also be lined with two pickleball courts for a total of 6 pickleball courts in many hours of the day.

  • The office state sport of Washington is booming at ETC

  • We added a 4th court (court 13) last year.

  • All 4 current courts are busy throughout the day including pickleball classes, flights and public court rentals  

  • Court expansion also allows for junior pickleball program expansion

More Pickleball
More Adult Tennis
  • R.I.S.E. Plan - with new indoor court add more evening and day adult classes

  • While junior tennis is our primary mission, ETC adult programming also has long daily waitlists.

  • Healthy communities are active communities.

Better Viewing & Community Spaces
