OUR CLUB,

OUR



This post is in response to concerns we have received from members.  


In an effort to offer guidance, the QCPC Board of Directors would like to remind you that it is the responsibility of all Members and Residents of Quail Creek to prevent the spread of COVID.  We live in a very interconnected community and world.  We all share the responsibility of creating an environment that balances the health and safety of our Community, Friends, and Family Members. 

 

Every Quail Creek Resident with COVID (or living with a spouse who tests positive) has a responsibility to follow the CDC guidelines.  Remember that each QCPC member who decides to participate in pickleball has the PRIMARY responsibility to protect themselves while at the pickleball courts by social distancing, wearing a mask, and limiting the time of any potential exposure.  It is important to remember that people are infectious before they show symptoms, and many people with COVID are entirely asymptomatic and will never know they are infectious.  In both cases, members will play at the courts without any reason to know they are contagious. 


Anyone whose spouse or other household member tested positive for Covid-19 should follow CDC quarantine guidelines.  If you have had close contact with a confirmed Covid-19 positive individual, please stay away from the courts until your quarantine period is complete.  For Quarantine guidelines from the CDC please click here.


If you have symptoms or test positive, you need to isolate.  The CDC guidelines for Isolation can be found by clicking here.


OUR CLUB, OUR RESPONSIBILITY

Big Rule Changes Coming Soon:

Lets, Drop Serve, & In-Out Balls

Win a New Franklin X-40 Ball!


Why are players dropping the ball when serving?


What do you do with a “let” serve?  


Your opponent’s shot landed just outside the line.  Are you sure it’s an out ball?  Maybe not!! 

 

Most of us haven’t had time to study USA Pickleball’s many rule changes (effective 1/25/21).  Fortunately, USA Pickleball Ambassador and QCPC member Lenny Friedman has.  Watch this video as he highlights three of the most important rule changes every recreational pickleball player needs to know

 

You’ll see how to perform the drop serve within the new rules and how it can be used as a powerful weapon in your game.  You’ll also see pro player Tyson McGuffin trying it out for the very first time. 

 

The line call rule change has received much less attention than the drop serve.  You may shocked to find out that, beginning 1/25/21, you need to re-think your line calls.  This is a very significant change affecting all players.

 

Bonus!!  Email your answer to Lenny’s simple question at the end and you’ll win a new Franklin X-40 pickleball.

From Bill Foraker, Membership Chair


There seems to be some confusion about the waivers as I am receiving two copies from many people, and that confuses me.  Here’s the scoop.  There are two waivers - one for the PB Club and one for the POA.  Every member needs to sign both, but only one time, unless the lawyers make changes, of course.  So if you’ve signed both this year, you don’t have to sign in any following years.  


Ahhh, I hear your question - But how do I know if I’ve signed them.  Well, you sign onto the roster on the web site and to the right side, you’ll see columns for waivers.  If you have X’s in your boxes, you’re good to go!  If you don't, please sign them and get them to me in the next two weeks.  


To polish the point further, if you submitted an application signed both the front and back, you have signed both waivers.  The signature at the bottom is the PB club waiver and the back is the POA waiver.  You don’t need the separate forms that are waivers only.  Those waiver only forms are just for those members who submitted their renewals before the waiver requirement started.  So if you’ve already renewed and need the waiver only forms, you can get them from the web site or from the bulletin board in the Ramada. 


Thanks for your patience as I learn my new job and I’m really glad we only have to do this waiver thing once!
