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 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.
