  1. I usually play at the North “Y” on Mon. Wed. and Fri. but due to spring break it’s down to one court instead of 2. I called the Bettendorf “Y” and it’s not offering pickleball at all this coming week due to spring break. I know they get a good turnout. Also, the Davenport West Y has changed Saturday pickleball hours from Noon-5 to 9 AM-Noon. The Y’s are notorious for changing their hours and not letting anyone know so I thought it wouldn’t hurt to let club members know.

    • Thank you for bringing this to our attention, Susan. With Covid-19, most venues in the area are closed. We will do our best to communicate when venues will reopen. We’re hoping for good weather so that outdoor pickleball can begin again.

    • Hi Wendell. As you can see on our Places to Play page there are several locations throughout the Quad Cities that have places to play on Monday, Wednesday, Friday. We even have some on Saturdays. Your best options to just pop in and find people there would be Mel McKay in Rock Island, Northwest Park in Davenport, Bettendorf Middle School and Kiwanis Park in Bettendorf.

    • Hi Julie, Currently there are no classes scheduled. I believe Sharon will be holding classes again in May at RIFAC in Rock Island. We will post that information on this page of the website, in our news section on the website, on our Facebook page and through email (you’ll only get an email if you are a member). You can also contact our instructor, Sharon Walters ( ), she may be able to give you a date when she will be having class again. Another option is to join in with the Beginner/Intermediate players at one of our venues. Locations and play times can be found through the Meetup app.

  4. I am visiting family in Davenport this weekend 5/7-8. I would love to play pickleball. Any advice?

    • Sorry I missed this note this morning as we have several places to play on Saturdays. Sunday, May 8th, there is pickleball at the Davenport West Y at 1 pm. In the future you can always check out our calendar on the website.

  5. Pingback: Sunday Play in Geneseo | Quad Cities Pickleball Club

  6. Why is West YMCA not listed as a place to play in the evenings Tuesday and Thursday 6:45 to 8:45 year round? Played there last night. There were 5 players, we had half of the gym to ourselves. The court can accommodate 3 nets without interference from the other side of the gym.

    Y membership is $37 person, $49 husband/wife a month. The $49 activation fee waived if you are referred by a current member. Membership can be cancelled 30 days in advance. Some health insurances will reimburse cost of membership.

      • I understand they are still up. The park districts take the tennis nets down will this include the Pickleball nets?

      • I don’t know about the Pickleball nets, but I would assume they would also take those down at the same time they take down the tennis nets.

  7. I see there are places to play indoors. Do you know if any of these places offer evening or weekend hours for indoor play this winter to accommodate those of us who work during the day but love to play? I know the RIFAC offers 1 evening.

    • RIFAC has Monday evenings 7-9 p.m. Sportstown in Eldridge has Saturday from 8-11 a.m. Beyond the Baseline in Davenport will have Saturdays, but the times have not yet been announced. There is also a new opportunity at Arrowhead Ranch in Coal Valley on Saturdays. So far just two dates November 14th and 21st, have been set. Future dates will be scheduled depending on attendance. Check back on the website and our calendar for updates.

  8. I plan to visit Quad Cities this weekend (Friday-Monday) and would like to play. The weather for Saturday morning looks iffy. Is there a way I can find out, closer to the time, if the play will be outside or in?

    • On our activities calendar page, below the calendar, the places to play are listed along with contacts that you could call for more info. Just look for the city where you are planning to play.

    • Hi Susan,
      Yes, They now have two courts at Riverside park in Moline where they play every evening at 6:00 unless the Alleman Tennis team has a tennis meet. Once you are there, or if you are a QC Pickleball member, you can get information for a sign up sheet that we have on line.

      • Do you still play at 6:00 cause new to pickleball and wanting places close by to play.thank you

      • Hi Mike, We have several locations that play in the evening. Not sure where you are looking to play. The most up to date place to look is our schedule that is posted in MeetUp. It’s an app for your phone or you can access the site on a computer.
