The news of the week (24)

Hello, here is another newsletter

30 players in Barcelona - The very first tournament in Spain was more than successful as 30 players were taking part last sunday. They were dropped into six groups of five players and the winner of each group qualified for the play-offs round. In the final, Luis Benito won the title on shots against Flavio Watzka. Competitors were coming from three different clubs (Palomar FT, Lleons de Girona SC & Subbuteo La Selva) while 19 players were not member of any club. This was therefore a great day for the table football community and for WASPA in particular.
