NET REPAIR PROJECT

                **JOHN SICARDI**
           **DAVE THOMAS**
                **DAVE MUNGO**  





C:\Users\djmun\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\INetCache\Content.MSO\A63E2554.tmp Sixteen new nets were installed on the QCPC courts in 2018.  As you may have noticed, the new nets tend to bunch up at the top.  The uneven top causes unpredictable bounces and extra net wear. The bunching occurs because the distance between our net posts is several inches closer than standard.  

QCPC members Gary Mencimer, Dave Mungo, John Sicardi, and David Thomas devised a way to fix this problem.  The nets on several courts have been fixed already, the remainder will be over the next few weeks. Courts may be taken out of service during non-Prime Time to make these net modifications. Gary Mencimer is taking the lead on this project and spending many hours to do so.  Please thank Gary and the team for making our courts even better!








NEW DATE

March 13 IPTPA Ratings Rescheduled to March 29

Our Certified Rating Specialist is not available on March 13 and needs to reschedule.  Ratings scheduled for March 13 are cancelled.

A new signup will be included in the next newsletter.
                
IPTPA Ratings - 
Friday, March 29th

IPTPA rating sessions will be held on Wednesday March 13.  A session requires 4 people going for the same skill level rating (i.e., 2.5, 3.0, 3.5 or 4.0).  Please note skill level rating you want in the comment box, then others wanting same rating can sign up with you.  Sean Rickard will conduct the ratings, he is a Certified Rating Specialist (CRS).  Go to IPTPA website (IPTPA.com) to see requirements for each level.

If this is your first rating as QCPC member, you will need to join IPTPA for $15 as a 3-year individual member.  The club will pay the CRS for your first rating.

If you have already been rated through QCPC, you do not need to rejoin IPTPA as your membership is valid for 3-years.  You will need to pay the $25 CRS fee directly to the CRS.

Practice sessions will be held for those who signup for a rating.

If you have questions, contact Jean Bustard at jeanb@dcmesa.com.
