2017 DInk for Pink Pickleball Tournament

I recently received an email announcing the Dink for Pink Tournament held in Leland, NC on Wednesday March 15th - Sunday March 19th. The email announcement is shown below.

Dink for Pink - Lump to Laughter - Charity Pickleball Tournament.
We are announcing our annual March Pickleball Tournament benefitting the Wilmington based Lump to Laughter Breast Cancer Support Organization. The tournament dates are Wednesday March 15th - Sunday March 19th. All 2.5 & 3.0 level play is scheduled for Wednesday & Thursday. All 3.5 and above level play is scheduled for Friday & Saturday with practice time on Thursday afternoon. Sunday is reserved as a rain make-up day.

This tournament is a regional tournament. So, especially for the Friday and Saturday play there will be many participants. Registration opened on December 15th  and we already have almost 100 participants registered. I expect the Friday and Saturday events will fill quickly. If you wish to play, please don't delay registering and risk being shut-out.

We use a compact schedule of play, so usually all play within your group is completed within a 5 hour window. For all levels up to 3.5 we use a two round format. Round one is a mini round-robin and Round 2 is a single elimination. For levels 4.0 and above we use the standard double elimination format.

For lots more information about the tournament please visit our website.
