Juana Summers Pinball

Juana helps run the pinball leagues at Holy Frijoles. She has been playing competitive pinball for six or seven years.

“It’s the way I’ve met most of my friends, she says. Up until recently, most people I play with didn’t have a clue what I do for work.”

“I fell in love in the back of a punk rock Mexican restaurant and bar in Baltimore. Not with my husband, though we’ll get to him later. I fell in love with pinball,” Juana explains.

“For many, the draw of pinball is nostalgia. Not for me. I can’t remember playing before I was in my 20s. But when I got my hands on a machine for the first time at age 25, I was hooked by the bells and chimes, the rhythmic flippers, and the spinning silver ball. Soon, I was regularly trading in dollar bills for pockets full of quarters, looking for my next game.”

“It wasn’t long before I was introduced to the world of competitive pinball. Yes, that is a thing — and people take it really seriously.”

“Before long, I found myself hopping in the car and traveling for tournaments, in our area but also out of state. Going to theNew York City Pinball Championships in Manhattan and Pinburgh in Pittsburgh became annual “family vacations” for my husband and me. I got to play in the first Women’s International Pinball Tournament — which, despite playing poorly, has been one of my most memorable experiences.”
