Pinball Strikeout


Join the us and the Triad Pinball Players on the 1st Sunday of every month at 2pm for a strike-out Pinball tournament!

Registration & Cost

Register on-site before the event kicks off at 2pm. Registration is free and open to anyone! A $1 donation per player is appreciated, but not mandatory. This fee allows us to receive World Pinball Player Rankings (WPPRs), and is payed to the International Flipper Pinball Association (IFPA) per player in each event. Players are responsible for their own tokens during tournament play.


This is an IFPA sanctioned event, and is endorsed by the Stern Army. Prizes such as collectible pinball back-glass translites and other merch/swag is awarded to the top players at every event. If players show interest in a cash prize pool, one will be generated amongst ONLY those who buy-in.


The Group Strike/Knockout format may vary from month to month (3 Strikes, 4 Strikes, Fair Strikes, Progressive Strikes, etc) but will always be announced in advance, along with a thorough explanation of the rules before each event begins. Players will be randomly paired in groups of 3 or 4 and assigned to a random table. Each player receives strikes based on their standing at the end of each game. The winner is declared when one player is left without the maximum strike limit (3, 4, etc).
