Take a look at our Blog on What to Expect at a Tournament. This will start to show you some things to think about.
The main thing with preparing yourself mentally is to think about remaining calm during matches. You will not need to get yourself too hyped up as you will do this naturally anyway because you will be a little anxious about the tournament. It is more about remaining relaxed enough to perform like you do during your practice.
Physically you should start your preparation a long time out from the tournament. However just before the tournament you need to make sure you are rested. Sometimes tournament take a long time and you may have to play several matches during the day. Think also about your food intake for the day. Be well prepared with what you take to the hall. Have lots of healthy snacks that you can nibble on during the day.
