WASPA's first birthday

Just one year ago, the very first WASPA tournament took place in Simi Valley, California (USA). After 12 months, many things changed and 27 tournaments were played in total, attracting 160 players from 15 countries and from all continents. Daniele Spadaro (Malta) is currently the number 1 player in the WASPA ranking and Malta is the reigning nation. Geoffrey Marain (Belgium) is the only player to have won three tournaments.

So what can we expect for the next 12 months? Let's hope many more tournaments will be held if possible also in new countries, many new players will be involved and more importantly the spirit of WASPA will remain with key words such as fair-play, respect and passion. We can also hope the people who had a negative feeling about WASPA will change there mind and see that having different associations can only be good for the beautiful game of table football.

With the relaunch of the brand SUBBUTEO in the stores, there will be new potential players in many different countries and WASPA will be there to give them something. Let's play on!
