IFPA – Women’s Alberta Provincial Pinball Championships

Overview:

In conjunction with the IFPA (International Flipper Pinball Association) North American Championship Series held within the US, the Death Save Pinball League (DSPL) hosts the Women’s Alberta Provincial Pinball Championship (WAPPC). IFPA tracks the WPPR (World Pinball Player Ranking) performance of players by results from each of the league and tournament events in the province and at the end of each calendar year the top 16 players with the most WPPR points from Alberta will qualify for the APPC.

Schedule & Fees:

The 2023 WAPPC is scheduled for January 22, 2023 at Arkadium Retro Arcade, in Sherwood Park, Alberta. The entry fee will be $20, and the top 4 winners in A division will receive prize money and the winner a plaque. The winner of the event will also have their name engraved in our annual trophy and have their name on a banner and that will be shown at our annual YEGPIN: Pinball and Arcade Expo.

Qualification:

IFPA tracks the WPPR (World Pinball Player Ranking) performance of players by results from each of the league and tournament events in the province and at the end of each calendar year the top 16 players with the most WPPR points from Alberta will qualify for the WAPPC.

Top 8 on performance in women’s only events and top 8 based on performance on all open events. All events that a player participates in from January 1 – December 21, 2022 will be counted towards the standings (as opposed to the NACS, where only the 20 best results count towards qualifying).

Tournament Format:

The format is a head to head and you are guaranteed two rounds of play. All players start in the A division, if you win your first round or have a bye you will stay in the A division, if you lose your first game then you will be placed in the B Division. In the A Division the games are a best out of 7, (note the 3/4 Place game will be a best of 3 per IFPA rules) in the B Division all games are a Best out of 5.

The WAPPC will follow the official rules as the North America IFPA Championship Series, found HERE.
