From Tournament Director, Kaite Martin:
I am honored and so excited to be able to FINALLY announce the inaugural Women’s International Pinball Tournament! It’s taken a lot of hard work and coordination and I couldn’t be prouder.
I want to thank Elizabeth Cromwell for spearheading this even at times when I started to feel defeated and I want to thank Bowen Kerins for helping me work out a schedule and prize structure (he’s pretty good at the math stuff)
I have so long wanted to do something worthwhile for the women’s pinball community and with Pinburgh being my absolute favorite pinball tournament in the world I couldn’t think of anything more gratifying than having a tournament take place at ReplayFx
Replay FX is proud to host the inaugural Women’s International Pinball Tournament (WIPT), the largest competitive women’s pinball tournament in the world. This match-play tournament will host 64 fierce competitors from around the globe battling for a total prize pool of more than $5000.
The Women’s International Pinball Tournament consists of multiple rounds of four-player match-play pinball competition, with no players eliminated until the finalists are selected. The top 16 finishers earn cash, and the top 4 head to a playoff that will be awarding the largest prize in competitive women’s pinball history.
WIPT is capped at 64 players, and pre-registration is required.
*Information on how to pre-register will be announced in the coming weeks.*
