The 9th WASPA tournament organized by Attard SC took place on thursday and finished on friday due to the heat and the lack of air conditioning in the hall where the tournament was played. As usual, 16 players were competing and the top player of each group qualified for the semi-finals. A few big names were out in the first round like Simon Gauci. In the semis, there were two close games Daniele Spadaro beat George Ebejer (2-1) while Joseph Mifsud took the best on Angelo Borg (1-0). In the final, Joseph Mifsud proved to be the best player as he beat Daniele Spadaro, the current number 1 in the WASPA ranking (2-0). Angelo borg won the final for the third place against George Ebejer (3-0). Joseph Mifsud, who is also the world number 1 veteran in the FISTF ranking, claims his second WASPA title.
