Q: What shoes should my players wear?
Since both gyms have hard floors it is recommended that all players wear court shoes (for example Sambas). Turf shoes are NOT recommended. In fact many players find that they slip a great deal when wearing turf shoes.

Q: When will my first game be played?
We understand that most teams will be traveling over two hours to participate in the tournament. For the Adult tournaments all teams should anticipate playing at least one game on Friday and that game could be as early as 12 noon. This all depends on the total number of entries in the weekend.

We do not accept visiting officials.
