The Space City Pinball League is dedicated to organizing and promoting tournament pinball events in Houston, TX. All SCPL competitive pinball events in Houston will be posted and documented on the website calendar. All skill levels are welcome! If you would like to create a tournament, or would like to promote an event, please contact the SCPL Board of Directors. 


Space City Pinball League primarily hosts IFPA sanctioned tournaments and league series. The objective of the International Flipper Pinball Association (IFPA) is to serve as the governing body for pinball as a competitive sport, through the sanctioning and organizing of events at the Local, State, National and International levels. 

The IFPA has created the World Pinball Player Rankings (WPPR) to establish an official rankings system of pinball players throughout the world. Through these endorsed tournaments and leagues, the IFPA crowns the World’s Greatest Pinball Player at the end of each calendar year and organizes championships at State, National and International levels. IFPA endorsed tournaments will give players a chance to increase their WPPR rankings.


The league’s governing body consists of a board of directors who are appointed. Each board member has one vote. Board members share the responsibilities of: 

  • Directing tournaments
  • Submitting tournaments to the IFPA calendar
  • Coordinating and updating the SCPL calendar
  • Submitting tournament results and fees to the IFPA 
  • Maintaining positive relationships with operators that host our members
