We recently lost our friend David Taylor much too soon. To honor him, we'll combine two of his passions, beer and pinball, into the Taylor Memorial Pinball Tournament. Join us for this all-day matchplay tournament, with all proceeds going to David's charity of choice, The American Kidney Fund.

Tournament Details

The tournament will be Saturday, December 8th at No Quarter in Nashville, TN. This will be a matchplay tournament with 4 players games. Games will have swiss seeding with random game selection managed by tournament software. The location will open at 10:00 AM and be available for practice. The tournament will start promptly at 11:00 AM. We will play as many rounds as possible with the last round starting no later than 5:30pm. Scoring will be IFPA style 7-5-3-1. There will be no finals, highest point total wins.

Tournament fees will be $10, with 100% of the proceeds being donated to The American Kidney Fund. Further donations are accepted and encouraged! Coin drop will be required. Prize drawings will be held at the conclusion of the tournament. More specifics on prizes will follow.

This is an IFPA sanctioned tournament. Due to location size, we will cap the tournament at 40 players. We do not expect to hit the cap, but please email to reserve your spot, or sign up at Matchplay ( It would be great if you could give us a heads up if you plan to attend.


Since this is a charity tournament, 100% of the entry fees will go to charity. We'll have a random drawing for prizes at the end of the tournament. Prizes include
  • Metallica Pinball artwork signed by John Borg
