celebrating public pinball in the baltimore / dc region
Our mission is to support and celebrate pinball on location, the operators that offer up machines, and the venues that house them. The roots of pinball originate from publicly available machines in the arcade, bar, and other public gathering spaces. As pinball enthusiasts, we must support pinball in its natural habitat and provide fertile ground for pinball to flourish.
Despite having one of the most prolific pinball leagues in the world, the Baltimore / Washington DC area is suffering from a serious lack of publicly playable pinball machines.
Pinball is entering a new renaissance. New machines are being produced at a higher quality and greater volume than they have been in decades. The appreciation for classic machines continues to grow as well. Throughout much of the country, pinball is also gaining visibility in barrooms and arcades. However, our region has very limited offerings. We hope to change this by patronizing and thanking the people that make public pinball possible.
ABOUT THE TOURNAMENT
Highlighting location pinball in the Baltimore / DC region, the Baltimore DC Pinball Championships consists of pinball tournaments and events at some of the best locations for publicly playable pinball.
The year-long championship series is comprised of multiple IFPA sanctioned tournaments and a yearly championship match pitting Washington DC area players against Baltimore, MD area players. We will name both a singles champion for the region and a winning city for the year.
The singles champion will be decided by a cumulative score resulting from performance in the singles tournaments.
The city champion will be named resulting from an annual team tournament that pits DC players against Baltimore players. The team with the highest score as a result of this single event wins and holds the title until next year. Learn more about the city championship.
