Updated QC POA Non-Resident Guest Policy

The Quail Creek POA, along with all Robson properties, has updated the COVID Non-Resident Guest Policy for the pickleball courts effective March 1, 2021.  The QCPOA COVID-19 guest policy supersedes the QCPC P&P guest policy until further notice.

Please remember that the hosting QCPC members will be responsible for ensuring that all guests at the QCPC Pickleball facility comply with existing masking and social distancing rules.


1.   The Quail Creek POA COVID Guest Policy is effective March 1, 2021.  The Non-Resident Guest may play on a court reserved by a Quail Creek Resident for all times after 2 pm on all days of the week.
2.   A Non-Resident Guest is defined as an individual from outside the Quail Creek Community not residing with a Quail Creek Resident.
3.   The Non-Resident Guest must be accompanied by their resident sponsor while using the courts.
4.   Non-Resident Guest Ratio: The maximum number of Non-Resident 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, however, the QC resident must be in the rotation of play.
5.   The maximum number of courts that may be reserved is 2 courts for 2 hours with a maximum of 10 players.  For this to occur you must have two Quail Creek residents in the rotation.
6.   An adult must accompany guests under the age of eighteen (18) and remain with them for the entire duration of court use.


IPTPA 4.0 Practice Drill Session


On Wednesday, February 24th
 Sharon Kolarik (USAPA 5.0👏) 
offered a 4.0 IPTPA training class 
that would allow the participants to
 perform the skills necessary to take the 4.0 IPTPA test. 

We had twenty-four QCPC members participated, and just like the actual test, the participants had to achieve a score of 68 points out of 90 to pass.  

In this group there was one participant who was able to achieve the qualification for a 4.0 rating, with the average score for all participants at 56.4. 

This training class had participants doing transition zone backhands/forehands/cross-court shots, 
as well as overheads, punch volleys, baseline drop shots 
and the famed "windshield wiper" drill.
  The drills with the highest scores by all of the participants were the windshield wiper drill and the overheads.  

The class provided excellent insight
 as to what the members needed
 to practice to achieve that next skill level.

If you are interested in the IPTPA testing,
 check out the right side of our webpage under "Rating Information".  
 The IPTPA testing is available for 2.5 through 4.5 skill levels,
 and since its inception at QCPC
 a total of 111 members have taken and passed the test.
