What do you eat before a pickleball tournament?

If the rain stops, I'm going to play Women's Doubles in the Greater Rochester Pickleball Fest, today at 5:00pm. My body is happiest if I eat breakfast at 6:00am, lunch at 11:00am, dinner at 4:00pm and a light snack at 8:00pm. Naturally that schedule gets jumbled for a number of activities and I "improvise, adapt and overcome". The rain and a little busier than comfortable morning already have me somewhat off tilt. I want to perform well, so I found myself asking what and when should I eat. I decided upon raspberries at noon and a 2:30pm lunch of a King Oscar sardine sandwich on whole wheat bread, one small sweet pickle, a little popcorn, a handful of frozen blueberries in plain yogurt.
