ZenSports gives you 2 ways to add players to your tournaments:
1. The really really easy way -- Players can find, register, and pay for your tournaments on their own.
There are no screenshots to show you for this step because you literally don't need to do anything. Players can find your tournaments within the Search screen of the ZenSports app. Once they find your tournaments, they can register and pay for the tournaments with their credit card right from their phone. There's zero work to be done on your part. You just sit back and watch the cash roll in.

2. The still pretty easy way -- Players can sign up with you outside of the app on the day of the tournament, and then you can manually add them to the tournament yourself.
While we encourage players as much as possible to register and pay in advance for tournaments, we understand that some players may decide to show up last minute for a tournament or (gasp!) still prefer to pay in cash. ZenSports doesn't want to take away an existing process that you may have, so we still allow you to add players to tournaments yourself (just like you might if you were using paper brackets).
To add players to a tournament, first go into the Tournament Menu screen. From there, tap on the "Add Players" menu choice:
Next, you can either search through the ZenSports database of players and choose an existing player from our system, OR you can manually add a new player that is not found in the system:
First we'll focus on adding existing players that are already in the ZenSports system.
To search for players within the ZenSports system, just start typing in the first few letters of their name. A list of players in our system that matches those letters will begin to appear. Choose the player in the list that you wish to add:
If that player does already have a credit card on file, you can simply tap on the "Add Player" button to add him/her to the tournament. His/her credit card will automatically get charged for the amount of the entry fee, and you'll receive the money directly into your bank account:
If that player does not already have a credit card on file, you add his/her credit card info by typing it in. Then, just tap on the "Add Player" button to add him/her to the tournament. His/her credit card will automatically get charged for the amount of the entry fee, and you'll receive the money directly into your bank account:
If an existing player in our system still wishes to pay with cash, you can simply select the "Pay using cash instead?" option first, and then tap the Add Player button:
Now we'll show you how to add a new player to your tournament that is NOT already in the ZenSports system.
Back on the Add Players screen, tap on the "Player Not Found" choice:
From there, you can enter in the name and email of the player that you want to add. Just like in adding an existing player, you can either add a new credit card for them to pay with, or have them pay with cash:
