Change in Evening QCPC Days


The QCPC Open play in the evening will be changing days of the week from Monday/Thursday to Tuesday/Friday beginning April 30th.  This will last until the end of August.  The start time of 6 pm stays the same through the summer, along with the reserved courts of 9-12.  This is because Inter-Community play will take place on the Quail Creek courts on Monday and Thursday evening.
