    How many of you guys and gals are in a pinball league? And how may are in your league.

    #2 4 years ago

    yeah, we have i think 30 people in this current league.
    also in a traveling team league which is super fun.
    leagues are awesome!

    #3 4 years ago

    There's a league here as well. we meet up at least once a month. Always a good time.

    #4 4 years ago

    Die Hard League here in Edmonton every 3rd Tuesday with 32 people

    #5 4 years ago

    >200 people in New England Pinball League last season, including me.

    I run pingolf team and heads up team leagues in the NEPL offseason, but I only play in those some of the time.

    We also run Super Selfie monthly leagues every month.

    I'm in three! Four next season hopefully... 20-40 people in each. Plus two selfie leagues, but I don't think those are the same thing. If there was a city to the north of me instead of some stupid giant lake I'd probably go to that one too

    #7 4 years ago

    I'm in two that meet weekly, 20-30 regulars. Mentor in a new novice league every third week or so.

    #8 4 years ago

    I am in one. Weekly, about 40 players.

    #9 4 years ago

    24 players, including myself.

    #13 4 years ago

    Same here. Thursday nights in Concord. Awesome location with 14 pins. Average attendance is only 12-20. We need more players! If anyone nearby is interested in checking it out feel free to PM me.

    Just about to wrap up the inaugural season of the Stampede City Pinball League. 32 people and we meet biweekly on Wednesdays. Been a great experience so far. Can't wait to keep it going. Shout out to Joe with FSPA for all the help getting us going and the setting us up with their software and website.

    #23 4 years ago

    Second Saturday of the month. 21 active members. I live in a village of 500 people!

    #24 4 years ago

    The Toronto Pinball League (ToPL) usually has anywhere from 35-40 regularly attending players. ToPL makes Monday's something to look forward to again!

    #25 4 years ago

    In the Dukes city pinball league in Albuquerque with Tim Mezel. We currently have 29 members and are in our 6th season. Don Walton usually plays but took a break this current season. Our last 6th game night this season which is every two weeks is this Friday and is at the Mezel shop in Rio Rancho. I am currently in 4th place and Mezel is in 16th place in the bottom half. (lol)

    #26 4 years ago

    Was about to post but Tim beat me to it. I usually cap the league at 24 but opened it up a little more this time. We had almost 1/3 new players which feels like we are growing the local pinball community. We are fortunate that we have several collectors that are willing to host to make it happen. I'm in 5th so I'm coming for you Tim!

    #27 4 years ago

    The Free State Pinball Association (FSPA) has been running leagues in DC/MD/VA for TWENTY YEARS. Currently have 92 player spots, among 4 leagues, sizes are: 30, 28, 27, 7.

    Hubby and I used to be in 2 here in Ohio. We had to drop out of OPL (Ohio Pinball League) because of work and travel just got to be too much. We started our Cincy Pinball League here in Cincy in 2013, and we just finished our 4th season this past Sat. here at our house. We have 30 people 3 divisions. We start our next season in Aug. We play in league members homes on private collections. We have a very diverse group and play on everything from Ems, classic SS, DMDs, WPC, to the newest games, depending on what each host has in their collection. We have great folks in the league, and I couldn't run it without everyone's help. Lots of great friends, and good times in Cincy Pinball League!



    #29 4 years ago

    I started one in New England area. Classic old school only. 1971 - 1985. Have anywhere from 12 - 16 members per season.
    We play on 5 private collections spanning 40+ different titles from the era in very good to fully restored shape.
    As far as I know, we are the only league just concentrating on the Classic old school pins in private collection settings.

    It's a BLAST!


    #30 4 years ago

    We have 24 total in the Atlanta Pinball League.

    #31 4 years ago

    Oh, and we are in need of people to sign up on our wait list.

    #32 4 years ago
    Quoted from Fuse:

    Second Saturday of the month. 21 active members. I live in a village of 500 people!

    Well done, fuse! That's s helluva ratio!

    #33 4 years ago

    My gf and I play in NWI. Average over 20 people a week. Great group to play with.

    #34 4 years ago

    Monthly league, around 30 odd players show up, if your really keen there's one each week here in Melbourne at different sides of town so you have to put in a lot of travel, but I just stick to my local one, bayside pinball club..

    #35 4 years ago

    I was in PPL for a while. Not been able to make it out recently because of the new baby. Not sure how many members we have now.

    #36 4 years ago

    Just started one this year. 16 member league with subs on deck. http://www.slapleague.com/

    #38 4 years ago

    I run the Tucson league. We meet once a month (first Saturday) and have 20 players so far this year. Capped at 30, so any locals who want to join should feel free.

    #39 4 years ago

    16 this season in Lafayette Pinball League, I think we have maxed at 24-25 before, have one of, if not the best locations in the country to play in Main Street Amusements. Every Tuesday except the 3rd of the month when we have a 3-strikes tourney on those nights. Also run a selfie league at same location.

    #40 4 years ago

    Grand Rapids Pinball League in GR Michigan. This is the 8th season (2 per year) and we are currently at 70 people this season.

    #41 4 years ago

    There are three monthly drop-in leagues in Madison at three different locations. First Thursday, second Wednesday, and third Saturday of the month. Anywhere from 15-24 people usually. I usually get to two of the three.

    #42 4 years ago

    No Who's on first

    #43 4 years ago

    You guys with 30-70 people in the league is a lot. How long does it take for 1 league night of play?

    #44 4 years ago

    The 30 person league in in takes about 4 hours for groups of 3-4 to play six games of pinball.

    #45 4 years ago

    I run Monterey Flipper Pinball. Average attendance is around 16 players, with about 30 in any given Season. Our Season is 10 Nights long, each night currently consists of playing 4 games. League nights are light on ceremony and heavy on reception, only an hour to 2 depending on smoke breaks to finish League Play.

    Huge props to FSPA. They have a great point system that we really enjoy, plus a well fleshed out ruleset.

    #46 4 years ago

    I co-run the Fox Cities Pinball League. 24 members. In our 3rd year.

    #47 4 years ago
    Quoted from whisper:

    Monthly league, around 30 odd players show up

    Out of our league that has 20 who show up weekly, I'd say at least 15 of 'em are odd.

    #48 4 years ago

    First session for nky league starts in a couple weeks. ..gettin it going with some fletch pin nazi guy

    #49 4 years ago

    Been in One for three years now. About 30 people or so in ours.


    #50 4 years ago

    I created one with a friend 3 years ago. It covers a relatively large area (South-West France: Aquitaine http://www.flipper-fr.org/aquiflip/). We organize at least one tournament per month (overall 14/15 per year). Nearly 200 players participated to at least one tourney this year, but the hardcore players really interested in the general ranking represent only 10-15% of the participants - many are just casual player enjoying a pinball challenge once in a while. Final ranking is based on a player's best 4 performances during the season.
