Pinholics Anonymous proudly presents the Pintervention Championship Circuit, a year long qualifying event culminating in a championship tournament held after year's end at the House of Stone in McLean, Virginia.

The Pintervention Championship is a circuit event where players earn Pinholics Anonymous Tokens (e.g. WPPRs) for each Pinholics event they attend.  The better a player performs, the more tokens they will receive.

The top 40 players in the final standings will have an opportunity to compete in the championship.  This event is sanctioned by IFPA similar to the PAPA Circuit event.
