This is a wiki post containing known upcoming pinball tournaments coming up around the world. The intent of this post is twofold:
- Prevent event overlap when possible by having a centralized list of events people can check against.
- Allow players to see events that are happening near them, either at home or when traveling.
I have divided it into two sections: Single Event and Periodic. For instance, in Portland, we have a tournament every Tuesday. This is a periodic event, as opposed to Portland Pinbrawl, which happens once a year.
Feel free to add your event here, or update the events already present with links or whatever.
