Welcome Home Travelers




Lessons Return!!!


2.0 Beginner Pickleball 


We have changed the format this year in order to get more of you started on your pickleball journey. There will be a 6-week class starting Monday, September 27th from 1-3 P.M.  You MUST commit to the 6-week class so you will be with the same people during that time. If needed, you may miss 1 class. For the first class we have only 6 more openings, so the first 6 to respond are in.


You will learn correct footwork for safety and all the basic shots. Please bring your paddle, court shoes, water and possible electrolyte drink (heat and dehydration) Sunscreen, eye protection and hats are highly recommended.


In October we will start a second class of 10 people for 6 weeks on Wednesdays. Again, the commitment will be 6 weeks. 

For this 1st class; please contact Steve Shapiro at sshapiro57@gmail.com

TIME FOR PLAY
FOR EVERYONE

Those that have been away for the summer are returning, 
We have new members joining the club.
 Courts are getting busier all the time. 

Open Play allows you to drop in and play without signing up.
This is a mixed skill recreational play.
No skill level court designation.

When the courts are full of players, 
Waiting players need to place their paddle 
in the "Paddle Saddle" 
to be able to rotate into the court
 after each completed game.




 If four or more are waiting, the first four 
will replace the players 
on the next Open Play 
court to complete a game. 
Move the "next sign" to the next four color slots. 
If there are less than four waiting players, 
one or more of the previous players may remain
on the court to make a foursome,
allowing the waiting players to enter. 

Players new to open play may need help 
knowing how it works. 
Candace Plumlee, Communications Chair, 
who can't play because of a surgery, 
has volunteered to be a facilitator 
for folks needing help with the system. 
She will have her name tag on 
and at the courts most mornings during open play time. 

Contact Candace via the club email

PLEASE FOLLOW THE SYSTEM
TO ALLOW ALL TO PLAY 
 
THIS IS NOT TO REPLACE COURT RESERVATIONS
FOR THOSE WANTING TO PLAY WITH SPECIFIC PLAYERS






The Arizona Pickleball Players League Teams
Forming in Quail Creek
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 @ sshapiro57@gmail.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).
