NEWS: Belles & Chimes is Coming!

It started in Oakland. It spread to New York City, Portland, Oklahoma City and even Cleveland. Now Phoenix is finally cool enough to join their ranks!

The Phoenix chapter of Belles & Chimes, a pinball club for women, will launch on Thursday, Jan. 26, at Tilt Studio at Arizona Mills Mall at 6:30 p.m., according to a press release from the new group. Organizers are encouraging women of all skill levels to come down for a fun, supportive, and social meetup.


Heading up the Belles & Chimes in Phoenix is Tracy Lindbergh, a rising star on the local (and national!) pinball  scene. Tracy is currently ranked 11th overall in the state of Arizona and 79th in the world among female pinball players. And we think she’s pretty awesome.

“I run weekly and monthly tournaments in the Valley and the percentage of female players is low,” Tracy said her press release. “I know women enjoy playing pinball and I’m excited to provide a place where women can gather to play in a supportive environment, improve their skills and if they choose to do so, join in the larger competitive pinball scene in Arizona.”

Women may join Belles & Chimes Phoenix for just $10 to be a founding a member in its inaugural year. Tournaments will be held monthly in 2017 with a league finals in November.
