Plunge The Ball

Some games have a plunger to pull, some have a LAUNCH button to press.  That gets your first of three balls in play.

Flip Skillfully

Keep the ball alive by pressing the flipper buttons either side of the game.  Flip when the ball is close to the flipper, and don't worry if it drains!  You'll get at least two more balls before your game ends.

Pinball as a Competitive, Social Sport

For years, Wellington pinheads have been gathering in garages, bars and living rooms to test their skills, discover new games, and chase ever elusive WPPR points.   The International Flipper Pinball Association certifies pinball tournaments and leagues, and tracks players' performance through World Pinball Player Ranking points,
aka, tasty tasty WPPRs. 

Now, thanks to Pinball Spots and Ye Olde Pinball Shoppe, Wellington has a dedicated venue in which to build the profile of competitive pinball as a social sport for all ages.

Pinball Tennessee have an excellent primer for anyone interested in attending their first pinball tournament.

A monthly league for women and gender diverse players, meeting on the fourth Thursday of every month.   Details on the Multiball Maidens Wellington Facebook page.

There's also our regular social tournament, on the first Thursday of every month...
