ANZA ATHLETIC CLUB, BOCCE BALL, PICKLEBALL, POOLS, TENNIS


The lap pool is for adults only.

They say if you’re bored in Quail Creek, it’s your own darn fault.  With exercise classes from  Aqua Fit to Zumba Basics, and a full equipment room of treadmills, stationary bikes and  free weights, there are no excuses. Want something more leisurely? Learn Bocce Ball. It’s easy, it’s social, it’s fun. But if you’re used to more rigorous activity, start your day with 40 laps of swimming or a game of tennis. Then again, there’s always the three mile loop around the perimeter of Quail Creek to pump-up the heart and work up an appetite. So, if you’re bored…

Fitness Classes

Bocce Ball


The Bocce courts were refurbished summer 2013.

You don’t need to be Italian to enjoy the ancient game of Bocce. You might need a bit of luck or a touch of talent, however, to win.

It’s a fun and easy way to spend an early outdoor evening with friends, especially since the courts received new felt, new benches and new score boards this summer. Bocce court hours are from sunrise to 10:00 p.m. daily. The courts are lighted for night play and players are asked to turn off lights when play is completed. Courts may be used on a first-come, first-served basis for club play unless reserved. Courts can be reserved by signing up on the bulletin board outside of the courts. Equipment is available at the courts in the storage bins provided at the courts.  Leather-soled shoes or golf shoes are not permitted.  Rolling and tossing of balls are the preferred method of playing the game. Balls should not be thrown beyond the halfway point between the foul line and the center of the court.  For additional rules, please see the Quail Creek Homeowners Rules and Regulations.

 
Sixteen pickleball courts constructed summer 20114.
Pickleball or is it Pickle Ball?

I had never heard of pickle ball and I’m still not sure if it’s one word or two.  But it’s one of the newest crazes to hit Green Valley and the fastest growing sport in America.   As you drive into Quail Creek, look to your left to see the construction of the new fully facilitated ramada and fenced and lighted courts.  Pickleball arrived. (It’s one word…I looked it up!) 

Pools

Quail Creek has a swimming pool that allows children a couple of times a day, a hot tub, and an adults-only lap pool available for use by our residents and renters. There are also a lot of rules. Suffice to say, you may bring grandchildren (see the rules) but you may not wear cutoffs (see the rules).

Tennis

Wikipedia states that “Most historians believe that tennis originated in northern France in the 12th century, but the ball was then struck with the palm of the hand hence the name jeu de paume (“game of the palm”). It was not until the 16th century that rackets came into use, and the game began to be called “tennis”.  I don’t think Scott’s  Jack Kramer Autograph racket has been used since the 16th century, but it looks cool hanging in the garage.

Year round play is available on six lighted courts.  The Quail Creek Tennis Club(QCTC) manages the scheduling of tennis facilities on behalf of the community.
