BREAKING NEWS: CONGRATULATIONS TO OPEN WINNER RICH MALLETT AND CLASSIC WINNER RAFAEL MASEDO

Thank you to everyone who took part in the 2018 UK Pinball Open and UK Pinball Classic tournaments.

We hope you had a fun time competing at Daventry.

Congratulations to the winners in both tournaments.

In the Open, the final was between Rafael Masedo and Rich Mallett and it was a best-of-three match, starting on Terminator 2 which Rich won. The next game was Monster Bash which Rich set a target of 47M for Rafael. Although he began his Frankenstein multiball on the last ball, Rafael just fell short of the target, reaching 41M and giving Rich a 2-0 win.

Trophies and cash prizes were presented by Tournament Director, Peter Blakemore.

Game two was on Fathom and this time it was Ad who came out on top. The decider was played on Gorgar where, despite both players getting some rough bounces down the outlanes, Rapael won by 140,100 to 103,960 to take the title of UK Pinball Classic champion.
