ATTENTION: All Members of the QCPC

The QCPC Board has decided to enact the following temporary rules to protect the well-being of our membership and the residents of Quail Creek. 

As you may know, the coronavirus guidelines now apply to gatherings of more than 10 people whether planned by groups, organizations or individuals.  Yesterday GVR closed all Recreation Centers, including all of their pickleball courts.  The QCPC Board is trying to be proactive to prevent this from happening at our courts.   While we are not trying to prevent pickleball from being played, we feel that it is our responsibility to promote best practices and compliance with current health guidelines.  To that end, we strongly urge the following for all pickleball players:

  1. Engage in as much social distancing as possible at the courts.
  2. Do not play if you have virus symptoms, including coughing, sneezing, and fever.
  3. All players should wash their hands immediately prior to playing.
  4. Consider disinfecting balls before play as these are potential means of virus transmission to all players handling the balls.
  5. Be cautious about touching objects used by many people such as the rest room door knobs, the water fountain, etc.

In addition, there will now be a limit of 2 courts per individual for reservations all day.  This is intended to limit the size of gatherings to 10 or fewer.  Also, the "Members Only" tournament will be postponed to another time.

On another note, the dates for the pickleball light installation has now been changed to March 23rd/24th, so those courts having lights installed will be blocked off for pickelball play on those dates. 

Also, effective Thursday March 19th there will be a total of 6 courts designated as "not reservable" during Prime Time hours.  Outside Prime Time hours, courts 15 and 16 will remain unreservable.  This will allow players to drop in, not for any kind of organized play, but rather just for pick-up games.

Remember, these new restrictions will not last forever, and things will progressively return to normal.  Keep healthy and safe.
