Day of Event Self Check-In/Notifications
On day of your tournament, your director may enable self check-in. This means no central desk to visit upon arrival. You will arrive at the event, and enter the posted check-in code into the software to let the tournament director know that you have arrived.
Once the tournament director starts your bracket, you will be notified via in-app messages (or text messages if you choose) of which court to play on. After the match is finished, the winning team will enters the scores for the match if your tournament director has selected that option. This video shows how the winning team enters the scores. The tournament may also be setup that only court managers enter the scores. .

Adding A Player [4 minute video]
With Pickleball Den Tournaments you may add a player manually, either because they are paying cash or check at the door, or you are substituting a player for another player who has already paid the fees. This video will show two options you have as a Tournament Director to add players or substitutes.
Bracket Seeding Verification
After you have completed seeding your brackets, you will want to check to make sure that players who live near each other (e.g. same Club) aren’t seeded as opponent in the initial matches. You may also want to check to make sure that players who are in Men’s/Women’s doubles aren’t seeded as opponents in the mixed double event.
What happens after a team withdraws from a tournament? With Pickleball Den we handle it all for you! Den will automatically mark the team as withdrawn and adjust all the future matches to “skip over” the match.
