Womens Tournament

TOURNAMENT INFO

For all the ladies out there, come along and try your hand at some friendly and fun competitive pinball.

The tournament will comprise Qualifying (Best Game format) and Finals, adopting a simplified and condensed format to that of the Main Tournament.

We encourage all ladies to come along and have a go! You never know your luck, you may just be crowned the inaugural West Coast Pinball Festival Women’s Champion.

The Women’s Tournament will be run during the Festival weekend on Saturday 19th September. For those ladies keen to have a crack at the blokes, there’s also the Main Event Tournament running over the weekend.

No experience in competitive pinball is necessary to participate, our friendly Tournament Team will be on-hand to facilitate the action every step of the way.

Tournament Entry: $10

Note. Tournament entries are additional to Festival Entry Passes and can only be purchased on the day at the Festival.

RULES & TECHNICAL OVERVIEW

Don’t understand the detail, no problem. Remember our Tournament Team will be there on the day to facilitate competition activities.

  • Machines used during the Tournament will be the West Coast Pinball Festival’s dedicated Tournament Bank of 10 pre-selected machines.

  • Qualifying will be conducted across 5-machines in Best Game format. Note. Players are not paired together for head to head matches, instead they play single-player games.
  • Competitors will receive one attempt at each machine and score points based on their ranking against other players in the competition. Players will be awarded an additional 2 attempts, for which they can choose any machine to better their previous ranking.
  • The scoring format to be used is the INDISC format (100/97/95…).
  • Following qualifying, the top players will be selected to proceed to the finals (the cut-off will be selected based on total number of players and time remaining – min. 3 players).
  • The finals will be played as a head-to-head bracket elimination format.
  • The scoring from the Womens Final round will determine the final podium positions of the Tournament.
  • Any ties in the Womens Final will be broken by a single game play-off on a machine chosen at random using a list randomiser. The results of the tie-break play-off will determine the final positions of both players.
  • No competitor at any time shall interfere with another competitor, or manipulate any machine – this will result in instant disqualification from the Tournament.
  • “Nudging” is permitted as part of pinball competitive play, however any rough handling of machines during game-play will forfeit the match (loss) and in extreme cases result in disqualification.
