The pickleball terms, phrases, words, people, and organizations that start with the letter "Q" include:
Queen of the Court – Queen of the Court (also referred to as King of the Court) is a game you can play on the pickleball courts in either doubles, singles, or skinny singles, with a large group of people. One team (or one person during singles and skinny singles) goes to the opposite side of the court and is designated the “queens” or “kings” of the pickleball court. Another team (or person) challenges the queens/kings to one point or a series of points. If the challengers win, then they become the queens/kings and switch to the opposite side of the court. The next team (or person) then challenges the winning team, and the old queens/kings move to the back of the line of challengers.
Questionable Call – A questionable call is a ruling made on the pickleball court that may or may not have been the wrong call. For instance, a shot that is close to the sideline that the other team calls out, while you and your partner believe the pickleball was in.
Quick – Quickness is key on the pickleball court—quick feet, quick hands, and quick decision making. Quick feet will allow you to track down more shots and keep you in a lot of points; quick hands will allow you to react to more fastballs; and quick decision making will allow you to make better, more strategic shots on the pickleball court.
Quick Serve – A quick serve is when the serving player calls the score and serves the pickleball in a very quick fashion in order to catch the receiving player off guard.
Quickest Growing Game – Pickleball is the quickest growing sport in the United States!
Quizzical Look – The face you make when you cannot remember the score or serving number.

Since returning to professional pickleball this year, after taking a long COVID hiatus, Leigh and Anna Leigh Waters have been traveling the country for pickleball tournaments. But, one thing that that they have not done in a really long time is take a family vacation... until now. Learn about Team Waters' trip to Costa Rica from Leigh herself, which included as much, or more, pickleball than at home in Florida, monkey spectators, family bonding, surfing, and a lot of new friends made on the Costa Rican pickleball courts, which reminded them how much fun the great sport of pickleball really is.
