The Pinball NYC League is a co-ed adult team league intended to gather people together for some drinks, pinball, and a little friendly competition. Outside of the cost of the pinball games, it is absolutely FREE TO JOIN! Each team consists of 6 to 10 players, and is hosted by a “League Approved” bar. Teams gather for matches once a week at either their “home” bar or an “away” bar. Each team plays half of their matches at “home” and half “on the road.” The season consists of 10 weeks of play, plus 2 weeks of playoffs. Teams accumulate points based on their performance in match play, and at the end of the season there is a series of playoff matches to ultimately determine the league champion. For a complete description of game play and rules, please consult our League Rules Page.
Players wishing to start a team should first consult our pinball database to find an available bar that is “League Approved.” Once chosen, assemble your team, fill out the team registration form, and submit it to the league. Teams will be approved on a first come, first serve basis. If your chosen venue is not available at the time of registration, then you will be notified immediately and another bar may be chosen.
All available venues must be “League Approved.” These bars have a red circle next to their name in the Pinball New York City database indicating whether they are available for Monday night play, Tuesday night play, or both. For a complete discussion on what constitutes a “League Approved” venue, please consult our Ratings Page.
