   ==================================



****The Starting Time****
for Court Reservations 
is Unchanged

Due to changes to the Hold My Court software, the time changes previously announced did not go into effect last week.  As a result, the starting time for Hold My Court reservations will remain unchanged.  We are sorry for any confusion caused.  As in the past, court reservations begin at 9:00 PM on the seventh day prior to the day for which a reservation is sought. 

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

****Change in the Starting Time****
to Sign Up
for Club-Sponsored Events
Using Sign-Up Genius

Beginning on 2/15/21, the starting time to sign up for Club-Sponsored events using Sign-Up Genius will be 9:01 PM on the seventh day prior to the day of the event.   

The times of recurring Club-sponsored events are not being changed.  For example, an Organized Play round robin previously held on Mondays from 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM will continue to be held at the same time.  Sign-ups for a Club-sponsored event on Sign-Up Genius will start at 9:01 PM one week before the event.   For example, sign-ups for an Organized Play round robin on February 22nd  begin at 9:01 PM on February 15th.





Last Year the Members of the QCPC purchased $5,819 through Pickleballcentral.com using our Club Code of CRQuail
 This gave the member a 5% discount
 and gave the QCPC 5% back.
For 2020, even with COVID and all the restrictions we had, 
you generated $290.94 for the Club 
to use on future purchases 
(training aids, paddles for Club use, pickleball, etc.).  

Remember to look at our QCPC Pickleball Store
 for your local QCPC reps for Selkirk and Paddletek.  
They will let you demo a new paddle,
 and will also sell you new paddles 
with 5% going to the Club.

PREFERRED GUEST

Pickleball Program

Robson Quail Creek offers a 1 day, 3-day, and 4-day Preferred Guest program. 

 The program is offered to prospective buyers that are interested in living at Quail Creek.

  They stay at one of the Guest homes in Quail Creek so that they may experience the Quail Creek lifestyle.

  In the past, the Preferred Guest would have access to the golf course and would have arranged tee times.


  Due to the high interest in pickleball, 

the program has been expanded

 to include pickleball reservations during their stay in Quail Creek.

  With the QCPC Boards approval, 

we will try to place the PG in one of our Organized Play Round Robins

 depending on their skill-level and dates of stay. 


If that doesn't work out, then we will arrange for a private doubles match.  

If you are interested in being part of the "Court Ambassador" program, 

please email Steve Shapiro (sshapiro57@gmail.com

with your name and skill level (can be self-rated/IPTPA/USA pickleball). 

 We are looking for all skill levels with emphasis on 3.0, 3.5 and 4.0.

  It will be a fun experience for you and the Preferred Guest.
