History

Z Ball Amusements began in 2004 in Newtown, Sydney, Australia

Over the next 3 years we created a large games room out the back of the Newtown Hotel which was also where we held

first pinball competition and created the Z Ball Club.

By 2007 that was Sydneys FIRST official BARCADE, way ahead of its time with a total of 18 pinballs, 2 pool tables,

Retro video games including Street Fighter, Galaga, Sega Outrun and more. Old gun machines a very questionable

Skill Tester even Air Hockey.

Sadly by the end of 2007 the building was forced to renovate, it took 3 years for this to happen so that is when

Z Ball really took to the streets and started turning up in venues all around Sydney.

 

The Newtown Hotel re-opened 2011 and I'm proud to say we are back there again just not in that large capacity

Z Ball is currently looking for a large space to create a barcade bigger and better than before - let us know if you

have something!

From 2004 to this present day we have been running annual pinball competitions for our club, this involves many of

the venues that carry our pinball machines as the club members are required to play them to compete and ultimately

win the major prize which is a pinball machine of their own!

In the last few years Z Ball has also gotten involved with BUCK HUNTER HD, promoting and supporting the major

tournaments here in Australia and the world competition in the USA.

To sum up, we are NOT a company that just drops machines at your venue and that's it. We plan, market and

create. If you currently have machines in your venue already you may want to ask yourself what has that company

done for you? Have they rotated them recently? Do you have the latest? Have they advertised your venue?

ZBALL - there is so much we could be doing for you!
