Tournaments & Leagues

Pinballz Arcade is a great place to blow off some steam after work while participating in a league. Rather than that same old boring bowling or dart league, why not try your hand at Pinball? Fighting Games like Mortal Kombat or Street Fighter II? Compete on the old classics like Galaga and Ms. Pacman? Or just chill out with a beer while “competing” in a SkeeBall league! Our leagues are on weeknights and generally run for a short 4 weeks. The cost is free to enter. You only pay for play. Prizes and trophies to winners!

Come join today and hone your skills to compete in one of our Tournaments.
