Court Opening Time
Effective September 5th, the court opening times will be at 6:30 am
Prime Season begins in October and goes through April.
Prime Time will run from 8 am to 10 am starting October 1st.
On October 1st all Organized Play times are moving to after Prime Time.
You cyclists may have noticed that the bike racks have been relocated.
We were informed by Patrol that we could not leave the new green rack
in the space adjoining the handicapped parking space, so we moved it.
Then after some reassessment, we decided to move the racks again.
Now they are together near the NE corner of the parking lot.
It's not a perfect solution, but now we have parking for skinny and fat tire bikes.
The gray rack is single sided and will accommodate the fat tires.
The green rack is double sided so it will handle more cycles.
We know we blocked a sidewalk,
but there are still easy ways to get around the racks and we think this is the best solution... for now!
The Arizona Pickleball Players League Teams are forming in Quail Creek. This is a competitive fun league.
There will be Men's/Women's & Mixed Doubles in the 2.5/3.0/3.5/4.0/4.5+ levels this year. Home games will be played at Quail Creek. The season goes from January through the last week of March, playing once a week (alternating home/away). This is a Tucson league, so the away games are as far north as Oro Valley. You do not need to be part of the USA Pickleball. It iss open to all ages 18+.
For more information about the league...click here.
If you are interested in forming a team or joining one, please contact Steve Shapiro @ email@example.com. Please let me know if you are forming a team, or would like to participate as a player. I will also need to know your skill level (this does not require an official skill level from USA Pickleball/IPTPA, but you need to have the skill of that level to play in the league).

Pickleball was created to be a fun, competitive, and highly social sport. Since its inception, it has embodied an ethic of good sportsmanship that includes respect, fair play, and graciousness in winning and losing. The purpose of this guide is to encourage behaviors that reflect these foundational values. The Official Rules of Pickleball take precedence over this guide in any and all situations.
1. Treat all players, officials, volunteers, staff, and spectators with courtesy and respect.
a. Introduce yourself to any players you do not know.
b. Never use foul language or obscene gestures. Never denigrate another person.
c. At the end of each game, meet the other players at the net to acknowledge them in
a positive manner. In officiated matches, thank the referee.
d. Accommodate players with adaptive needs when possible.
2. Know the Official Rules of Pickleball, apply them fairly and cooperate in any situation
that is not expressly covered by the rules.
3. Practice good sportsmanship when making line calls.
a. Respect your opponents' right to make all calls on their end of the court.
b. Call your own shot “out” if you see that it is out.
c. If you question an opponent’s call, do so respectfully and do not argue.
d. If you defer a line call to your opponents, accept their call graciously.
e. Do not call a ball “out” unless you see it clearly and are certain it is out.
f. Promptly correct any wrong call your partner may make.
g. Resolve any uncertainty in favor of your opponents.
4. Call a fault on yourself or your partner as soon as the fault occurs, regardless ofwhether your opponents are aware of the fault.
a. Watch your own and your partner’s feet for service or NVZ foot faults
b. Accept your opponent’s and partner’s fault calls graciously.
c. Admit if the ball hits you or your paddle on the way out of bounds.
5. Claim a replay only if a hinder affects your team’s ability to play the ball.
6. In social play, rotate on and off courts fairly, courteously, and in accordance with local practice.
a. Don’t jump ahead of others who are waiting to play.
b. Don’t invite someone else forward in line or rearrange paddles so they can move up to play with you; move yourself back instead.
c. Don’t call a lower score or start a second game to avoid leaving the court.
d. Be prepared to play when it is your turn.
e. If you must cross over or behind an active court, wait until play is stopped andcross quickly in a single group to minimize disruption of that game.
7. Make safety a priority, while using common sense.
a. If a ball strays onto your court, make eye contact with the correct person and roll or toss it back to them without disrupting play on other courts.
b. If your ball enters another court, immediately warn any players whose safety may be in jeopardy by loudly calling “ball” or some other warning. If the ball is rolling behind their court and does not present a danger to players, do not interrupt play, but wait until play stops to retrieve it or ask for its return.
c. Never throw your paddle or strike the ball in anger or frustration.
8. As a stronger player in social play, be kind to other players.
a. Avoid hitting excessively to a weaker player.
b. Do not slam the ball directly at other players.
9. Be considerate about playing up and playing down.
a. Be willing to play sometimes with less-skilled players.
b. Do not demand to play with more skilled players; ask them nicely if you wish to play with them.
