ERNE

WHERE IS ERNE? 

WHAT IS ERNE? 

WHO IS ERNE

An Erne is an advanced shot on the pickleball court
 and is named after Erne Perry, 
who elevated the shot 
and first brought the shot into mainstream competitive play

The Erne is a shot where you hit the pickleball either (1) in the air
 as you are jumping around the Non-Volley Zone (also known as the Kitchen);
 or (2) after you run around or through the Kitchen
 and re-establish your feet out of bounds,
just to the side of the Kitchen.


Watch Ben Johns,
 the best male pickleball player in the world, 
teach Simone Jardim,
 the best female pickleball player in the world, 
how to do an Erne.

Ice/Water Machine

The POA was not able to fix the ice machine in-house. 
 They contacted an outside vendor on Thursday, 
May 6th who put in a temporary fix. 
They hope this will keep the machine 
up and running 
until a placement part is delivered.



Did You Know...

Did you know that you can report a maintenance issue
 with the restrooms, ice/water machine, or lights
 at the Pickleball court facility? 
 All you do is fill out the online form 
which automatically sends the maintenance request
 to get the problem fixed. 
It is as simple and easy as that.




Inter-Community Summer Play

Some of you may remember that a couple of summers ago the QCPC played in an Inter-Community Mixed Round Robin with the Green Valley Pickleball Club.  This was a really fun way to meet GVR Pickleball Club members and have great games of pickleball.
  
The details are below:
  • The IC would begin the week of June 6th at QCPC courts, with a 6:30 pm start.  The location would alternate weekly through August. GVR will be using their East Center location.  Four courts would be reserved for play each evening, with more if courts are available.
  • No weekly committal, just play when you want.  The format is a Mixed (male/female)  6 game Round Robin, just like our Organized Play RR.  You get a different partner each game from the weekly GVR/QCPC players signed up.  This is not a team format where we are just playing against GVR.
  • We would use SUG to sign up for the weekly play, with a link on our website.
  • The players' skill level would be determined by their IPTPA, USAP, or recognized Club rating. In our case, we would allow someone to play in a skill level that they play in Organized Play.  
  • The cost would be $5 at each location you play at, but only once for the summer.  This is to cover the cost of pickleballs. Total cost if you play at both locations would be $10 for an entire summer of pickleball. The pickleball that will be used is the Franklin X-40.  We will not be using the QCPC pickleballs.
  • The schedule will be as follows: 
    • Skill Level 3.5 on Monday nights @ 6:30
    • Skill Level 4.0+ on Tuesday nights @ 6:30
    • Skill Level 3.0 on Thursday nights @ 6:30
  • To judge the interest level, please click here to fill in the SUG, by May 15th.  Again, this is not a committal, but just being used to see if you might be interested in playing.
  • If there is enough interest by players at the 2.5 level, then that will be scheduled on Wednesday nights @ 6:30.
  • Finally, GVR would like to know if some players might be interested in early morning play at their Pickleball Center at  2612 S. Camino de la Canoa in Green Valley.  If you are interested in this, please also add this to the comment section above.
