The Capitol Corridor Pinball League (CCPL) was formed in 2011 to give pinball enthusiasts between the Bay Area and the Sierras a chance to participate in competitive pinball events. From its humble beginnings in Vacaville, it quickly expanded to Fairfield in 2012 with a new section forming in Folsom in 2013. The latest section in Lodi will be kicking off in July of 2015.
With the help of local individuals who are willing to share their machines with other pinball enthusiasts, regular meetings are held every other Tuesday evenings, with an all-day playoff event at the end of each season, generally held on a Saturday.
The league is IFPA-sanctioned and WPPR points are awarded to all participants, and both the regular season and the playoffs are reported as separate events. There are 6 weeks per season and 4 seasons per year.
If you are interested in participating in the league, in hosting a meeting, or in starting a section, please contact us.
League nights are held on Tuesday evenings, every other week. Playoffs are generally held on the Saturday afternoon following the last regular season meeting. Please check out the calendar for meeting dates.
There are currently two CCPL sections, CCPL-East that meets in Folsom and CCPL-Lodi that meets in Woodbridge. League meetings are held in the private homes of pinball enthusiasts, so location information is only made available to league members, following a vetting or referral process. If you are interested in joining CCPL, please contact us to begin the process.Contact Us
On league night, players are put in groups of 3 or 4 players and each player gets one try on each of 4 separate machines. The machines are selected from as many different eras as possible. Machines eras are: Electro-Mechanical, early Solid State, late Solid State, Dot Matrix Display pre-2000, or Dot Matrix Display post-2000. Practice on tournament machines is not allowed on league nights.
A player point total for the night is directly related to the performance on each machine when compared to all other players and depends on the number of players bested by that player’s score. For example, if 16 players are competing on a given league night, the highest score on that machine for the night will earn 16 points, while the lowest score on that machine for the night will earn 1 point.
This allows both for players with limited experience to get instantly rewarded for a good performance and for players who perform well consistently to get rewarded for their overall performance.
Additional bonus points are awarded at the end of the league night for the following items: “Top Score Bonus” for getting the highest score on a machine (1 point per high score, up to 4 points per meeting), “Top Dog Bonus” for getting the highest combined point total (without “Top Score Bonus” points being counted, maximum 1 point per meeting).
Regular season standings will be based on the total points for each player across all 6 weeks for each season and reported to IFPA as such.
Players are automatically qualified for the playoffs by attending at least 4 out of 6 league nights for their respective section.
Playoff seeding is determined by the total points accumulated throughout the 6 weeks (i.e., the regular season standings).
CCPL is organizing the first of an annual Winter Cup Pin-Golf style tournament. This is an IFPA-sanctioned tournament with 100% of the entry fees going towards the prize pool.
Everyone from the local pinball community is welcome to participate and get an introduction to what CCPL is all about. This is also a nice yearly celebration to kick off a new year of league play and tournaments. With an informal Pin-Golf style tournament, the focus is on fun and camaraderie.
