Templeuve tournament - It's Christmas period and it's a calm period for subbuteo players. The templeuve United club (Belgium) had a national tournament last saturday counting for the belgian circuit. 29 players took part, which is a poor turnout comparred to previous similar events. There were some good players taking part though and David Leroy (Rochefort TS) took the title after beating Alain Jadot (SC Charleroi) in the final. other winners were Stelio Tsangouris (Open B), Joffray Laurent (Open C), Jody Henrioul (U19), Kenny De Schuyteneer (U15), Corentin Bouchez (U12) and Olivier Dubois (veterans).
