    Richmond's first major pinball location, The Richmond Pinball Collective(RPC), is opening May 15th. Our location will have approximately #30 pinball machines, all donated by members of our club. We will be located at 9550 Midlothian Turnpike unit 112 with easy access from Powhite parkway.

    More info about our organization and our pinball collection can be found richmondpinballcollective.org.

    RPC is in process of obtaining a tax exempt social club license and will eventually be serving alcohol to its members. Memberships are inexpensive and start at $20/month.
    The purpose of our club is to share the joy of pinball. We do this by sharing our personal collections, by starting leagues, hosting public tournaments and by offering free classes on pinball maintenance and play to the public.

    Our aspirational goal is to make Richmond a pinball desitination. We want pinball enthusiasts and pinball curious to travel from all over the world to visit our location, to play in our tournaments and participate in our conventions. We plan to grow and to have the world’s largest publicly available pinball collection.

    Things are going great so far! Lots of members joining and some guests checking out our space too. Our new league has started and our first tourney is coming up June 10th. We are a volunteer run club, so always looking for more volunteer help.

    We've been getting very good press too, helping to spread the word.

    Be aware they are only open Monday and Thursday from 6:30-10:30 and Saturday from 3 to 11 so plan that in your visit!

    There is also now an AC/DC Vault and a Tron.
