The news of the week (28)

2011 back in the mirror - 2011 has been a good year for WASPA, not only because it was the first year of the new association. We had 15 tournaments organized by 9 different clubs from 8 different countries and 135 players from 14 countries (from the 5 continents) took part in the tournaments. There were small events with 4 players but also larger tournaments with up to 30 players. The beginning has been very positive. It will be important to continue to work and to increase the number of tournaments in 2012. Hopefully more nations, clubs and players will join in the next few months.
