Trisha Burgess has established the Fort Wayne chapter of Belles & Chimes.
Belles & Chimes is a nationwide network of women’s pinball leagues, founded in 2013 in Oakland, California.
The mission of Belles & Chimes is to provide a fun, social environment for women to play pinball together.
This is the first women only pinball series in the state of Indiana. Points in these tournaments will help women qualify for the Women’s World Championship.
The International Flipper Pinball Association (IFPA) created a separate WPPR ranking specifically for Women-only events. The IFPA will use this separate rankings system to select additional women as Wild Card spots for the Women’s World Championship.
Fort Wayne Pinball Wizard’s World Arcade is also a sponsor of the 2018 Women’s World Championship.
