We are now Pinball Republic and we are launching with a bang on 14th and 15th of May 2022 with THREE tournaments:

Saturday at 10:30: Matchplay... Top 24 qualify for finals - Start 12 rounds of qualifying from 10:30 AM

Saturday at 19:00: Matchplay Strikes - Best of 1 Matches (4 player matches – 3rd/4th place get strikes – 3 player groups ONLY 3rd place gets a strike)

Sunday from 10:30: Best Game Blind - Pick your games and top 16 qualify for finals. Games must be complete by 15:45 - finals start 16:00

We will have Fourpure as a sponsor and everyone will get a free beer. Pizza for dinner between the tournament on the Saturday and trophies for top players... Best kids and women and most laughable score!

NO REGISTRATION!

Just turn up - we will have Matchplay pre-registration closer to the time. Also to help with the pizza and beer please let us know if you plan to come so we have rough numbers.

 November 2021

We have managed to keep our prices the same for the last 4 years but the costs of operating the club have increased (not to mention the loss of revenue from covid-19 closures) and so to ensure our viability going forward, from January 2022 we will be increasing the entry price to £15. Monthly membership will remain at £20 so if you have considered joining us you now have even more incentive!
