PASSING THE 4.0 IPTPA SKILL TEST

This is a major accomplishment taking many hours of practice.

Why the change
 in Prime Time Reservations?

In response to the QCPC survey,
 members suggested we limit the number of courts reservable
 by a group during Prime Time,
 which will allow more individual members to reserve courts during this time. 

The new limit during morning Prime Time starting March 17th
 and running through April 30th
 is one court for two hours per group.

  Members of the reserving group
 may not reserve additional courts or time
 in the names of other group members.

  Exception: If there are still unreserved courts after 9:00 PM
 the evening before play,
 members may reserve additional courts
 during Prime Time up to a total of two.

QCPC Social vs. QCPC Tournament

What’s the Difference?


QCPC is holding a Round Robin and Social (10 AM through lunch) on Wednesday, March 23rd to celebrate the start of major league baseball. The round robin is a mixed gender event without separate skill levels.  It is a great way to meet new people and reconnect with old friends.

 

The QCPC Tournament will be held on Sunday, March 27th, from 8:30 AM to 5 PM.  This is a round robin tournament with separate divisions for women’s doubles and men’s doubles, each with four separate skill levels.  There will be medal rounds to determine gold, silver, and bronze winners.  A tournament lunch and party will be held in between events.

 

Though quite different, both of these events will be great fun.

  Members are encouraged to participate in both.

We Heard You!


QCPC Tournament Format Change

Separate Men’s and Women’s Brackets

 

Thanks to your helpful feedback,

 the QCPC Tournament on March 27

 will not be a mixed round robin event.


  Instead, the morning events will consist of 

 Women’s Doubles round robin and medal rounds.


  The Men’s Doubles round robin and medal rounds

 will be held in the afternoon.


  This is a members-only tournament with four skill levels

  Novice,

 Beginner

 Intermediate 

and Advanced

 (no ratings needed)


The focus is on FUN

 and providing a no-pressure
 tournament experience for members.

  Everyone will play the same number of games

 in the round robin,

 and the top four teams will go on to medal rounds.


  There is (of course!) a mid-day party

 with food, music, and prizes

 for players and spectators.
  

To accommodate the change in format,

 sign-up will be delayed until Monday, March 14th.


  Look for an email with

 SignUpGenius links and more details.


  In the meantime, contact your partner!
