ONE CLUB, ONE GOAL!




We are living in a historically difficult time.  Everyone is experiencing anxiety, frustration, or worse.  Members have a variety of opinions about what should and should not be done to cope with COVID-19.  Nonetheless, we all share a love of pickleball.  

We are ONE CLUB with ONE GOAL. 
We want our courts to remain open!  
Everyone can agree with that.

Like it or not, rules have been imposed by Pima County and the QC POA that affect the use of QC amenities, including the pickleball courts.  The POA rules are a prerequisite for continued use of our courts. 
The QC General Manager sent another reminder to the QCPC President this week reiterating that pickleball players are required to wear face coverings when at the pickleball facility (though not when on the courts playing).  The General Manager stated that he 

“really want[s] to keep the courts open, but
 if we cannot get compliance the courts may be closed.”  

The QC Patrol will be visiting the pickleball courts daily in order to monitor compliance.

ONE CLUB, ONE GOAL! 


In order to keep the pickleball courts open for play, the QCPC Board respectfully requests that all pickleball players bring and use a face covering when at the pickleball facility (except during games).

Please leave all POA signs and notices in place.

Someday all the stress and hardship caused by COVID-19 will be behind us.  Let’s do all we can to make sure that QCPC emerges unified and ready to resume all Club activities.  Enjoying each other’s company is just as important as playing pickleball.

ONE CLUB, ONE GOAL!

SO HERE IT IS AGAIN!

The Quail Creek POA’s 
updated Community COVID-19 Statement 
concerning the wearing of masks:

This update does not apply to the activity of playing pickleball. 

 It does apply to the congregating of groups before/after the game.
 
The QCPC urges Club members to be cautious about 
increasing potential exposures 
through reserving courts 
for more than four players,
and the allowed individual court, non club,
round robin.


Social distancing requirements of 6 feet remain in effect for all players (entering, departing, watching, waiting, etc.)


As the POA has made clear to us, QC residents use the QC pickleball facility at their own risk






IT IS HOT, 

YOU WANT TO WEAR LESS,

HERE’S THE DRESS CODE:

Men: NO tank tops, swimsuits, cut-offs

Women: NO tube tops, bare mid-riffs,
 halter tops, cut-offs

    COVID-19/POA/QCPC & You


    Many QCPC members have commented to Board members
    on recent changes to the rules governing 
    pickleball play in Quail Creek.  
    Some Club members are happy with the loosening of restrictions; some are not. 
     Please keep in mind that the pickleball rules
     put in place during the pandemic
     (and the changes made to them)
     are the product of evolving Arizona executive actions
     and POA policies 
    regarding the opening and use of QC amenities. 

     QCPC is not the controlling entity

    Changes to the pickleball rules have loosened some restrictions.

      However, these should not be taken as signs that the serious risks of COVID-19 infection have passed.  

    QCPC is neither recommending nor requiring that Club members take fewer precautions.  

    Please keep the following in mind:

    1. The numbers of COVID-19 infections and hospitalizations in Arizona have sharply increased in the past two weeks.  The QCPC urges Club members to be cautious about increasing potential exposures through round robins and reserving courts for more than four players. 
    2. Social distancing requirements remain in effect for all players (entering, departing, watching, waiting, etc.) 
    3. By opening the restrooms, turning on the ice machine, and incrementally loosening restrictions for play at the QC courts, the POA has placed greater responsibility on QC residents to follow health guidelines and protect the health of other pickleball facility users. 
    4. As the POA has made clear to us, QC residents use the QC pickleball facility at their own risk



Do you have a Pickleball Rating
 or has Yours Been Updated?

QCPC provides a list of Members that have an IPTPA/USAPA rating!

If you have a rating through one of these organizations
 and are not on the list, please let us know at qcpickleballclub@gmail.com.  
The list is located at the top of our website
 under the "Member Ratings" tab.  
The password is the same as the "Membership List".
(if you don't remember that password, email us at above address)



TRIVIA


Pickleball has had a 650 percent increase
 in numbers over the last six years,
 according to USA Pickleball Association (USAPA).

The "dink" is one of the most
delineating features of pickleball.

KEEP DINKING

Who can Play
 on the QC
 Pickleball Courts???

A couple of questions have come up this week
 concerning who is allowed to play
 at the QC Pickleball Facility.

At this time,
 there is no differentiation
 between Members/Non-members
 since there are no official Club activities.  
The courts have always been available
 to be reserved for any Resident of QC, 
except when the Club had official activities going on.  
At those times, courts 15/16 were left Non-Reservable
 for Residents that are non-members.

As for non-residents of QC, or guests of Residents, 
they are not allowed to play
 on the QC pickleball courts at this time, per the POA.

Everything will change back
 to the original rules
 once the POA allows the QCPC to have official activities.


VIDEO ANALYSIS 
OF YOUR GAME


Mark Renneson donated a
 video analysis of a pickleball game
 as a fund raiser for St. Jude.  

Bill Foraker won the analysis and found it very valuable.
 He wrote the following unsolicited testimonial:
 "To anyone who is serious about improving your pickleball game 
and can stand some constructive criticism 
Get a personal game evaluation
 from Mark Renneson at ThirdShotSports.com. 
 I did one, and not only was his evaluation spot on,
 but it’s like taking 4 or 5 lessons. 
 You can’t possibly focus on everything he points out to you,
 so I watched it, listed 3 things to work on. 
 Then when I think I’m ready, I watch again
 to get my next set of improvement items.  
Mark’s manner and his attention to detail
 is great and I couldn’t recommend it more highly
.  Do it and amaze your friends!

Bill Foraker, Quail Creek Pickleball Club, Green Valley, AZ"
Go HERE to see Bill's video analysis.

As we are currently limited in opportunities 
for pickleball lessons 
we are able to take from professional teachers,
 a video analysis from Mark Renneson is a good alternative.
  I will take the video 
and submit it to Third Shot Sports
 for anyone, in Quail Creek, 
who wants to purchase a video analysis. 
 The price has been reduced from $140 to $100.

  Go HERE to order your video analysis.
