If you want to join the league, all you really need to do is show up to an event. No need to wait for the beginning of the season, playoffs, or any other special time. All of our league events are “open” in the sense that all are welcome.
The only reason we keep location information private is out of respect for our hosts. Our league nights are held in private members’ homes, so we don’t post their addresses out on the internet for all to see. To gain access to the league calendar, mailing list, and event directions, you have a couple of options:
- If you’re on Facebook, just go to https://www.facebook.com/groups/torontopinballleague/. You’ll need to request access, but we’ll basically let in anyone who’s in the area and not a bot. All the league events get posted to the group calendar, which syncs nicely with your personal facebook account, and therefore other calendar aggregators.
- If you prefer not to use Facebook, we stil have a Yahoo group that you can access at https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/topl/info. Just click the “join group” button (you’ll need to sign into Yahoo first). Once you’re approved, you’ll get access to the group calendar (with all the events), as well as the email list. Event reminders are sent out to the mailing list before they happen, so if nothing else, you can watch for emails letting you know of upcoming events.
- If all else fails, Contact Us and we’ll help you get started.
Weekly league nights are most Monday nights, and the occasional weekend all across the GTA. There are also other TOPL affilliated standalone tournaments that we’ll post to the TOPL calendar. Finally, there are also other leagues in the area that cater to different geographies, schedules, or interests. Many TOPL members play in multiple leagues, and we try to schedule events around each other to let people play as much pinball as possible.
