Now that it is up for online registration, if you were unaware be known that there will most likely in the majority of cases be issues with existing Tournament Software account holders wanting to register for the tournament due to the fact that we have moved to Badminton Canada’s new player database this season. For players that have existing accounts, they will first have to link their Tournament Software account to the Badminton Canada Player database (select black ‘Login’ box at top right of the Tournament Software online registration screen). Second, they will be required through the system to renew their Badminton BC Membership. Thirdly and only after these first two steps have been completed will players be able to register for the tournament.
For players that do not have Tournament Software accounts, they will first have to create a Badminton Canada Player profile (select red ‘Sign up’ box at top right of the Tournament Software online registration screen). They will then be prompted to purchase a Badminton BC Membership. Again, thirdly and only after these first two steps have been completed will players be able to register for the tournament.
The biggest issue will be the linking for existing Tournament Software account holders, however this only needs to be performed once. For future membership renewals and tournament registrations this will not be an issue as they will already be linked.
Also note that Ken Theissen will be willing to help you with this entire process or if you need help, he is available by email and phone 8:30-4:30 Mon-Fri to assist with participant linking, membership, and registration. Information on how to do this is also available on his website at: http://www.badmintonbc.com/ page.aspx?id=1604
