Organized Play

Round robin play organized by QCPC members for differentiated levels of play. Organized Play provides weekly round robins for QCPC members of approximately the same skill level (self-evaluated).

 

Players do not have to be rated at specified level. Sign up is required. 

Members can participate in only one morning event per week and no more than two events per week total, regardless of starting time. So, members can participate in a morning event and one afternoon or evening event. Or, no morning event and two afternoon or evening events.

Competitive Doubles Ladder Play

Weekly doubles play using a ladder format.

Fridays from 4-6 PM. 

Players arrange their own partners (M-M, M-F, or F-F) in advance.  Six games will be played with the same partner in a friendly competitive environment.  If you win, you move up a court.  If you lose, you move down a court.   Players may change partners each week and/or may skip weeks. 

As play progresses, pairs will naturally migrate to courts with appropriately challenging opponents. For most pairs, this will provide a great opportunity to test themselves by “playing up.”  One team will finish the evening as “King of the Hill.”

Mid-3.0 to 4.0 players.  Ratings are not required.  For this to work well, 3.0 pairs should at least be reasonably strong 3.0 players.  We expect to have some 4.0 players there every week. 

The ladder format is used by many pickleball clubs, and it’s very popular.  Also, many QCPC members tell us that they would like opportunities to play better players.  Others want to participate in competitive play without joining a league.  APPL players can use this to practice for matches.  
 
 
Limited to Twelve Doubles Pairs—Sign-up Is Required   

Limited to first 12 pairs (M-F, M-M, F-F).  ONE PARTNER (and only one) MUST REGISTER on CourtReserve for each doubles pair.  Look for the “Competitive Doubles Paddle Battle” under “Events.”   

The Paddle Battle requires an even number of doubles pairs.  If an odd number of pairs register to play, the last registered pair is not guaranteed to play.

Club Socials​

The QCPC Socials are open for all QCPC members of all skill levels to participate in. The goal of the Socials and all QCPC events is to have a fun, safe event.

QCPC Socials are offered 6–7 times a year, with all courts used for round-robin play. The round-robins consist of six 15-minute games, with players expected to play all six games. The goal is to have a good time while still trying to play your best. Because of the difference in skill levels, everyone is reminded at the start of play to be aware of whom they are playing with and against so that everyone has fun.

 

The socials are generally ‘themed’ events. Participants are encouraged to get in the spirit and wear clothing that fits the theme. Food is a main focus of the socials, allowing players and non-players to hang out after play and get to know each other better. Some socials have potluck lunches, with players signing up to bring food. Other times, pizza or subs are ordered, with players paying $5-$10 to cover costs. Desserts and music are vital to a successful social and there is always an abundance of both. In addition to pickleball play and food, there are drawings for prizes.
