Finally, after years of setbacks, the Rockford Pinball League has begun!

Meet up with fellow pinball enthusiasts each week at Pinball Land to compete for the ultimate title of “Grand Champion” and the honor of wearing the championship belt. Read on to find out all the information you need to get started with Pinball Land’s own pinball league!

Where?

Pinball Land, 114 Courtland, St, Rockford, MI 49341

When?

Every Wednesday, beginning Wednesday, June 1. Doors open at 6:00 PM, league play starts at 7:00 PM. Competition will probably go until 9-10 PM.

Who?

Anyone who wants to play competitive pinball in a casual environment where fun and bragging rights mean more than anything.

How much?

It’s only $15 per player, which includes tournament entry, free play on all the games at Pinball Land for the night, plus free pizza and soda.

How does it work?

The format will depend on attendance each night, but it will basically go as follows. 10 games will be chosen  to be part of each night’s competition and games will be randomly assigned for each round. Most likely, games will be played in foursomes. Your finishing rank in the foursome earns an appropriate amount of points. The four players with the most points at the end of the night compete in a final round where the winner takes home the Championship Belt!

Do I need to sign up?

Nope! Come on down to Pinball Land Wednesday nights before 7:00 PM and you’re all set. Get in at 6:00 PM to warm up for an hour before the competition begins.

Do I need to come every week?

Nope! Just come when you can. There is a new Champion awarded every night.  Champions are automatically entered into the playoffs the next week to defend the belt.  If a champion does not attend the following week, they forfeit the title.  Your win/loss points accumulate throughout a series.  At the end of a series, the player with the most points receives the title of Grand Champion!

Pinball Land Championship Belt

It is our goal to offer the most purely FUN tournaments possible in the Grand Rapids area. We aspire to make ours different than other opportunities by not focusing on IFPA points (you will not earn them here) and instead focusing on personal achievement and most of all, fun.

If you are interested in pinball, have fun playing, and want to up your game by playing in a competitive environment, you’ve come to the right place! Bring a friend, swap secrets with other players, talk trash, and have a great break in the middle of your week. And who knows — you might just take home the belt!
