We run TWO leagues in North Texas!

One league travels to some of the best North Texas game rooms and private pinball collections from April through December every year. The other one runs ALL YEAR LONG at the BOS Pinball Lounge in the Firewheel  Mall in Garland, Texas! 

For each event in the first league, you pay $2 to the pinball league to cover the IFPA fees. I will not turn anyone away over money at the events hosted at people's homes (private pinball collections). If you can't pay, I will pay for you! The league itself and league sponsored tournaments are always this inexpensive.

However, in some cases, there is a nominal charge from the venue (For example: BOS Pinball, for the second league, charges $10 per person for a full day pass and then all of their machines are set for FREE PLAY (no coins needed - no cost for the machines) or if there is a charity involved (For example: the TSS event every year in Collinsville, Texas asks for a $20 charity donation).

These leagues are for ALL SKILL LEVELS. We have had players as young as 3 years old and as old as 81 in our leagues. So everyone is welcome - Just come , hang out , eat , drink , & play pinball!

Events are sanctioned by the International Flipper Pinball Association: https://www.ifpapinball.com/
