Below is the email that went out a few days ago.
Hello Pickleball Players,
You're receiving this email because you're registered for our tournament on December 23rd, 2017. If you're partnered up for Fixed Doubles, make sure your teammate has registered, If you're still looking for one, you have about 24hrs until we assign you one.
We are trying to speed up the registration process, so if you have not already done so, can please pay your fees in advance via interac e-transfer, it would be appreciated. Also, if you could print out your confirmation email and bring it along it will also help expedite the registration process. Please check your player fees at the link below and confirm that you are registered for the events you want. If for some reason you cannot pay in advance, please bring exact cash if possible.

Please check the registered players list HERE to make sure you're registered for all the categories you wish to play in (Random, Fixed Partner Doubles). If your name it not there, you HAVE NOT registered for it.
Registration for Fixed Partner Doubles will begin Wednesday MORNING at 9:00am with play starting shortly afterwards. Please register as close to 9am as possible so that play can begin as soon as possible. All skill levels will start at this time.
Registration for the Random Partner Doubles will begin Wednesday AFTERNOON 1PM (maybe 1:30) with play starting shortly afterwards (or whenever lunch is over). Please register as close to am as possible so that play can begin as soon as possible. All skill levels will be starting simultaneously.
Our aim is to have people play as many games as possible, so each category will consist of a round robin, followed by a singles elimination playoff. This should ensure everyone gets at least 3-4 games of round robin play. Depending on the number of teams in your category, your category may be split into multiple pools.
NOT EVERYONE WILL MAKE THE PLAYOFF. Only the top players in a pool category will make the playoffs, and the number of people to make the playoff will depend on how many teams are in a particular category.
FOOD & Lunch
Snacks and finger foods will be provided. Lunch will also be provided free of charge to everyone. Lunch will consist pizza and other food.
A lot of work has gone into this tournament by countless volunteers. If you see someone who's helping out - thank them, give them a hand. And please be patient and gracious - not everything will go as planned, but we'll get it figured out.
If you're unable to come please let us know as soon as possible. Your attendance (or lack there of) affects everyone else in your category. Being late also delays games for the other people in your event. So please respect your competition
If you would like to help set up or clean up we'll be there early Wednesday morning. Any help cleaning up once all play has finished would be greatly appreciated.
Please show respect for your fellow Picklers by refraining from abusive talk, dangerously aggressive play (diving into another court/game to make a shot), or not giving your opponents the benefit of doubt when making line calls or enforcing rules (stepping in the kitchen). Please stop play immediately and replay the point. We all want to win, but not at the expense of someone being injured or offending each other. The rule when it come to calling a ball in or out has to be conclusive - if there is any doubt or uncertainly, the ball is considered in.

This is the building you're looking for:
There will be no referee for games. If you have a dispute, try to work it out. The general rule of thumb is unless you're certain the ball was out, consider it in. If you can't work it out or need clarification on a rule, we'll do our best to provide answers.
There is a water fountain/bottle filler by the main entrance close to the washrooms. There are also showers available if you would like.
NO FOOD IN THE COURT AREA/GYM
Food is only allowed outside of the court/gym area so that the mess can stay as far away from getting onto the court surface.
Please check to make sure that you're registered in the events you want. If your name is not shown, you are signed up. If you're playing doubles, you and your partner are shown on the same line.
