“Two. Two. Ten!”


           

Rules for Making Court Reservations

 

Two. Two. Ten!  These are the basic rules for making court reservations. 

  • 2-hour maximum reservation time per group. 
  • 2-court maximum.
  • Maximum of 10 people (on two courts).

 

Other court reservation rules to know:

  • Groups may not reserve additional courts or time in the name of other group members.
  • Singles play reservations are limited to two (2) hours, no more than one (1) of which may be in morning Prime Time.

 

These rules are necessary to give all Club members fair opportunities to reserve courts and to comply with POA guidelines and Club policies.

Four Motions were brought before the Membership for voting, and all were passed.

Motion 1:  To purchase #5-6 foot benches for the pickleball area (similar to the ones already there) using the QCPC Capital Reserve Account.
Motion 2:  To purchase a Pickle Two pickleball machine with remote and cover using the QCPC Capital Reserve Account.  This will be used by Player Development Classes and available to our members.
Motion 3:  To update our By-Laws - Article IX, Section 2, concerning disciplinary investigations. The amended section will make it clear that claims filed against a member will be shared with the accused member.
Motion 4:  To update our By-Laws -  Article V, Section 1, concerning our budget. The amended section will make it clear that accumulated surpluses (represented by designated reserves) can be used in future budget years.
