About the PPC

Mission

The PPC is a club for everyone. All skill levels are welcome, but we are specifically interested in finding and fostering brand new players, as well as committing to an inclusive and respectful environment.

Competition is involved, but we are most focused on providing fun, camaraderie, and encouragement.

Venue

We meet at North Bowl, located at 909 N 2nd St, in Northern Liberties.

North Bowl is a five-minute walk from the Spring Garden SEPTA station on the Market Frankford line.

League meetings take place on the upper level, which features a full service bar offering drink specials for PPC members.

Cost

Each season costs $20 to participate. League dues go towards overhead costs, awards, and tournament prizes.

Players are also responsible for the cost of games played during league nights. Support your local operators!

Potential new members and visitors always play free on their first night.

End-of-Season Tournament

If you’ve attended at least 3 of the 4 meetings, you’ll be qualified for the end-of-season tournament. Your scores during the regular season will qualify you for A, B, or C Division where you’ll face players of similar skills in the finals. Prizes are given for the top finishers in all three Divisions.

Meeting Format

We will have a “Best Game” contest each meeting where everyone will get a chance to play the machines and post scores. Your scores will be compared to others playing that night, and you’ll earn points toward the season's final standings.

Win a Game!

We're giving away a vintage game at the end of the season, and every registered player will be eligible to win. The winner will be chosen via a random drawing during the Finals tournament.
