The Mid-Atlantic Melee - A Womxn’s Only Pinball Event

The time has finally come! We have had a lot of requests over the past 6 months for a Womxn’s only event, but instead of just having a small tournament here and there we have decided to make it a spectacle with 2 events in one day! Double the WPPRS! Double the FUN!

Also, for those not aware, the IFPA has now introduced a Women’s North American Championship Series for 2022! This means in addition to the normal Delaware State Championship Series, there will also be a Delaware Women’s State Championship Series! The 2002 Delaware Women’s State Championship will take place on January 22, 2023. At the end of each calendar year, the top 8 ranked players with the most WPPR points based on open events and the top 8 ranked players with the most WPPR points based on women’s-only events will qualify for the Delaware State Championship playoffs, where they will play for the title of IFPA Women’s Delaware State Pinball Champion!

Help spread the word and let’s make this the largest ever womxn’s event on the East Coast!

This is an all-ages, all skill-level, LGBT-friendly, womxn’s tournament

WHAT - 2 Separate IFPA Womxn’s sanctioned tournaments in a single day. First event will be a 2 hour flip frenzy with top 4 qualifying for a 3-game PAPA finals. Second event will be an 8-round group match play qualifying tournament with Top 8 advancing to “A” finals and will play in a modified 3-game PAPA finals. The main event will also have a “B division consolation tournament” for all players who did not make the top 8.
