How’s It Work?: Each league night players compete head-to-head or in groups in Match Play, Pin Golf or another format. A player can earn up to 16 points per evening.  For example, in match play, a player would be placed in a group of four and play four Rounds.  First place in a Round would earn 4 points, 2nd place would earn 3 points, and so on.

Your ranking is based on your total score.  Also, players with the better attendance records will get first choice of game or player order in formats where the option is available.

At the end of the season, results will be submitted to the International Flipper Pinball Association. All players who compete in the Finals will have a World Pinball Player ranking.
