About

MISSION

The Quad Cities Pickleball Club is organized to promote the growth and development of pickleball. We provide a forum to organize multiple places to play the game in the area, free lessons, and group activities. We serve as an outreach group to area cities, schools, and park districts to help spread the fun and healthful benefits of the activity.

The Club is a nonprofit 501(c)(7) social and recreational organization. It is governed by a Board of Directors. The Club is committed to further the growth of pickleball among players of all ages and characteristics. We are dedicated to helping players learn and improve their play through instructional lessons, drop-in and other organized playing opportunities.

The Club is proud to be affiliated with the USA Pickleball Association, which provides the infrastructure for the development of the sport through promulgation of official rules, sponsoring and sanctioning tournaments and clinics, ranking players, communicating with its members via e-mail and newsletters, training of all levels of players, and otherwise promoting pickleball. You are invited to join the USA Pickleball Association as a separate membership. (See http://www.USAPA.org.)

GENERAL MEETINGS

General meetings are held once a year in September and coincide with the annual fall picnic. Election of officers will be conducted with incoming officers assuming their positions October 1st.

Our annual fall picnic is held early September with a free catered meal to Club members. There is a guest fee for dinner. The picnic is usually held at Northwest Park which has 8 PB courts. Play starts at 3pm and dinner at 5:30. Now is a good time to encourage friends and neighbors to join our Club. See some of the reasons to be a Club member under Become a Member on the Club website.

CLUB SHARE MEETINGS

Our Club Share meetings will be held quarterly or as needed. All members are invited to attend as we value your opinions and ideas. Find out all the great things the Club is doing and how you can help. Meeting dates, times and locations will be announced by email and posted on our website.

BOARD MEETINGS

The QCPC Board of Directors meet monthly or as needed to conduct Club business. Members wishing to present issues to the Board should contact a Board member.
