Belles & Chimes is an international network of inclusive women’s pinball leagues run by women, for women. The organization was founded in 2013 in Oakland, California and there are chapters across the US and in various countries around the world. 

The Connecticut chapter started in 2019 and runs tournaments throughout the year across the Nutmeg state, and partners with other Belles chapters and pinball clubs in neighboring states, though the Sanctum is largely our home base. 

Our mission is to provide a fun, social environment for women to play pinball together. Our events are open to all skill levels- including those new to tournament play or pinball in general, and welcome to all cis and trans women and non-binary players comfortable in a setting that focuses on the experiences of women.

Our upcoming events can be found on the IFPA calendar as well as our social media outlets where folks can connect with us.
