- We want to play pinball in San Francisco.
- We want to meet old and new friends.
- We want to have friendly competition against each other for fun, fame and glory.
- We want to promote pinball in the City and beyond.
- We want to have a good, if not great time when we meet.
So, how does it work?
We’re open to anyone who enjoys playing pinball in an atmosphere of friendly competition. We keep score and report the standings to the IFPA for world ranking points. Only players who participate in at least 40% of our meetings (4) will be submitted to the IFPA (as per their rules).
We are already at capacity as far as members go. However, if there is space you are welcome to play as a guest on a per night basis for $10/round. We take a maximum of 10 guests/round, but if 80 or more members show up, we will not be able to accommodate guests since it gets too crowded. Guests are also limited to participate in up to 4 meetings per season. If you would like to play as a guest, please show up and register between 7:00 & 7:20 PM! If you come later than 7:20 PM, we can not accommodate you. Rounds 1&10 will only be open to members, i.e. guests will not be allowed to participate in those two rounds.
If you would like to join the SFPD, I can put you on the waiting list. If a current member decides to leave after the present season, their spot will be filled with the person who has been on the list the longest. To get on the list, send me an email with your contact information. My email is P, followed by E, followed by R@sfpins.org. As of 11/15/2018, there are 59 people on the list.
- Our home is at FreeGoldWatch on 1767 Waller St.
- The season consists of 10 regular season meetings + playoffs in the Spring, and 6 meetings + playoffs in the Fall.
- As a rule, we meet every other week, but sometimes we bend the rules, so check the schedule!
- We play 2 seasons per year, Spring and Fall.
- Players earn points on a set scale. See the Rules tab.
