Firebird Pinball was proud to help Belles & Chimes make its big debut Thursday night! The new, all-women’s pinball league started its season at Tilt Studio at Arizona Mills mall.

Phoenix joined a growing list of cities with pinball leagues for women when Belles & Chimes debuted here Thursday.
Ten women showed up for the first night, and the list of people already committed to the next event is growing.
Organizer Tracy Lindbergh already has been hosting weekly tournaments at Tilt, and expanded her repertoire to set up Belles & Chimes. Here, she gives some participants the rules for Thursday’s tourney.
The event attracted a fair amount of advance press, and Fox News showed up to cover it live. Check out their story here.
Eventual tournament winner Rachel Bess was even brave enough to attach a microphone while she played.
Lindbergh says the purpose of her chapter of Belles & Chimes is to bring together women who enjoy playing pinball in a fun, supportive and social environment.
Lindbergh shared this group shot afterward. Rock on, ladies, rock on. We’ll see you all again Feb. 26 at the Grid: Games and Growlers.
