An incredibly tough field including big names such as Richard Rhodes and Franck Bona, an even more amazing achievement for Paul considering that the Marathon allows for unlimited qualifying scores for an entire week. Well done to Paul Jones and good luck to the 24 finalists who will be battling it out all day today!

* Update as of 27th Jan - Full results added

The Coogee Flip Frenzy was held tonight at Coogee Diggers and attracted both a tough and diverse field - with the usual competitive suspects as well as a good number of female and younger players which is very welcome to see. A testament to how much work tournament director Norbert Snicer has toiled and put into his Pinball HQ League, growing the pinball sport across Australia and demographics.

Congratulations to all players who came along for the night and showed what pinball competitions are best at - getting a goup of people together, enjoying each others company and the chaos of the silver ball!
