Welcome to San Francisco's premier annual pinball event! We are excited to be part of the PAPA circuit! The competition will be held over 2 days, qualification on Saturday, and playoffs on Sunday.
Qualification will be 12 rounds in groups of 4 players, where new groups will be drawn for each round. Scoring will be 7/5/3/1. Pairings will be random for the 1st round and tiered Swiss for subsequent rounds. MatchPlay software will be used to run the tournament, and it will pick games throughout the tournament. Playing order will be balanced. The top 28 players will qualify for playoffs. Seeds 1-4 get a bye round.
Tickets go on sale Saturday, August 19th, at 10 AM Pacific time. The price includes a $5 per player fee that goes straight to PAPA for being part of the PAPA Circuit. Full refunds will be allowed up until November 16th. After this date there will be no refunds given.
