Members are having a great time on and around the courts while also respecting POA, Pima County rules, and other players.  We see more and more QCPC members social distancing and wearing masks at the courts.  The POA is also doing its part to keep our courts open by regularly disinfecting the gates and restrooms.  

 

The QCPC Board thanks you all!  One Club, One Goal!






The Arizona Pickleball Players League Teams are forming in Quail Creek. We already have a 4.0 Women's, 4.0 Men's, 3.0 Women's, and 3.0 Men's.
We are still looking for 3.5 Women's and Men's teams.

If you are interested in forming a team or joining one, please contact 
Steve Shapiro @ sshapiro57@gmail.com

New Shade Structure/Cement Pads


In case you haven't been down to the courts this week, the Quail Creek Pickleball Club (QCPC) is pleased to announce that the new Shade Structure has been completed, and the Cement Pads (seating) will be finished next Saturday.  This project has been ongoing for 4-5 years through the design/funding process.  The design had to be approved by the POA with the 100% of the funding provided by the membership of the QCPC.   A huge "THANK YOU!" goes out to the many hours volunteered by QCPC members who came up with the final plan and implementation.  The extra poles you see on the entrance to courts 11/12 are for future use of a vertical shade structure if needed to block out the sunshine.


In February of 2020, the Robson Corporation purchased and installed new LED lights so that all 16 courts have lights. 


We are confident that all of these enhancements will be enjoyed by all pickleball playing residents of Quail Creek.


Come on down and enjoy the cool breezes off the desert under the shade!!!!

************************************

Guest Policy for Pickleball Courts

The POA has now authorized 
outside guests to play
 on the Quail Creek pickleball courts. 

 The guest ratio policy is our normal policy.

Guest Ratio:
The maximum number of non-QC guests is four
for each QC resident in a reservation group. 
The minimum number of QC residents
must be present at all times, 
but it is not necessary to have a QC resident playing 
on every court at all times. 


The existing rules are still in place:
  • Limit 6 players per court
  • No QCPC sponsored activities
  • No Round Robins
  • No switching courts
  • Pickleball players are required to wear face coverings when at the pickleball facility (though not when on the courts playing) 
  • Social distancing requirements of 6 feet remain in effect for all players (entering, departing, watching, waiting, etc.)

A VENOMOUS LIZARD

They do not want to bite you, they are shy. 


If in the desert area, leave it alone. 

They do not do well when removed
from their territory and introduced someplace else.

Gila monsters are protected in Arizona
and it's illegal to kill, capture, or impede their activity.

If it does need to be relocated, 
call the snake line through the fire department.
520-629-9200 or 911.

for instructions in case you are bit.
