How do I register?
You can register for any of our tournaments at https://paddletappickleball.com/pages/local-tournaments. Please be sure to include your name, cell number, email, partner and specific division you are playing in. i.e. Men’s 3.5 50+ or Men’s 4.0 Singles. If you are registering for multiple events, please register for each event separately.
How long do your events last?
Paddle Tap Pickleball is known for fast running tournaments unlike some of the larger APP/PPA events. This however, is not an exact science since there are a number of contributing factors. Players may experience a delay due to inclement weather or unexpected long match play. We tell players to plan for roughly 4 hours but we strive to get your draws finished earlier. This is assuming you are winning
What time should I arrive at the courts?
We recommend arriving at least 30 minutes before the start of your scheduled match. This will give you adequate time to set up and warm-up if courts are available.
Do you have warm-up courts?
The answer is usually yes, but depends on weather and/or if the previous matches are running longer than expected. Please DO NOT jump on a court if you think it’s available. This will only create a potential delay for other matches to begin. Always check with the registration desk before getting on a court.
Where is check-in & registration?
Check-in & registration are located underneath the Paddle Tap Pickleball tent. Either Alan or Duane can check you in. You must confirm that you are checked in before getting on any courts.
Where can I park at your event?
The Country Club of Coral Springs has a first come first serve parking policy. We recommend parking on the grass lot adjacent to the courts. This area is usually being designated for pickleball players. Please do not park in the row of spaces near the tents.
What should or can I bring to your tournament?
You are welcome to bring a tent and chairs to sit under and on. Tent set up is available on a 1st come 1st serve basis. We do recommend bringing a chair, water, snacks, towels, sun screen etc. to make your experience the best. Our tournaments usually are sponsored by a hydration company so we do provide some drinks and water. Food is available at the restaurant but be aware they close around 5pm.
How will I know the format and general information about the tournament before playing?
The tournament Director will give a quick update before each division starts. This information will cover court assignments, bathroom & restaurant locations, tournament format updates, general housekeeping information.
How can I register for the raffle?
