Court Cleaning

The POA has now committed to 
cleaning our courts on a regular basis. 
They have a set schedule and have purchased
 a new "water broom
that will be used on all Quail Creek courts.

For April the courts will be cleaned as listed:

Tuesday, April 13th 12:30 to 2 PM courts 5/6/7/8
Thursday, April 15th 12:30 to 2 PM courts 9/10/11/12
Tuesday, April 20th 12:30 to 2 PM courts 1/2/3/4
Thursday, April 22nd 12:30 to 2 PM courts 13/14/15/16


The courts have been blocked out on the online reservation system.  In the summer months, the cleaning will move to early in the morning, once a month.






Did you know?

Now that COVID restrictions have been modified,
 the QCPC will now once again
 provide pickleballs to all of the courts.  

David Thomas (Court Maintenance Chairperson)
 is in charge of this program.  
For our Members, 
the QCPC purchases two different pickleballs.

Onix Pure 2 Outdoor Pickleball


  These are located in the white tubes 
     outside of the courts in the walkways.  

  • Exceptional seam welding offers
  •  greater durability and resists splitting
  • Superior balance with strategically aligned, 
  • precision-drilled holes
  • USA Pickleball approved

Franklin X-40 Pickleball
These are located in the black tubes inside each of the courts.
The USAPA approved X-40 Performance Pickleball
 is a premium quality ball that will play well on any outdoor surface. This ball delivers the best in-game flight
 out of any ball on the market thanks to our machine-drilled holes. 
The accuracy of the machine drilled holes 
will assure that each ball will play consistently one after another.
 The X-40 is the best pickleball on the market, try it for yourself today!

USA Pickleball Approved
26-gram weight is perfect for players of all skill levels
Official size, 74mm diameter with 40 precisely machine drills holes create a balanced flight pattern

If you haven't played with one of the pickleballs,
 feel free to try them out to decide which one you like best.
  The QCPC does ask the following:

1.  If the ball goes over the fence, please do not go after them. The terrain outside in areas is very steep with loose rocks and BIG snakes.  
AAA Landscaping will take care of picking them up and returning them.
2.  If you are playing with a pickleball that is cracked, deformed, or has lost its bounce - please just put them into the metal baskets that are hung outside the entrance to the courts. 

Finally, if you are interested in helping David with Court Maintenance,
 please get in touch with Steve Shapiro @ sshapiro57@gmail.com
 This is a fun job that takes just a short amount of time. 
You could actually do the job after 
you are finished with your pickleball game. 
 You would be job sharing with David Thomas.



Lost & Found Box


The famed QCPC Lost & Found box is back in the Ramada. 
 Please check there for any lost treasures (pants, coats, pickleball, paddles, glasses, etc.).  

The only item you won't find in the box is your missing backhand dink!

😏😏😏😏

 The Round Robin sheets and the Club loaner paddles
 will be returned to the box once Open Play is permitted by the POA.
