Monthly report of the WASPA circuit

Dear all, here are the files with updated results, rankings and statistics of the WASPA circuit.

Golden book
WASPA ranking of September

September has been a busy month for the subbuteo community. Many players travelled to Italy for the world cup and there was an amazing tournament run by FISTF and the Italian association. The WASPA circuit has had no summer break and this month, we have had many events in many countries.

A good turnout in Cyprus
For several reasons, 3 tournaments will be added in the records next month but points have been awarded to 20 Regional tournaments and 3 tournaments with the old rules. It seems the old rules movement in Italy is happy to be back in the WASPA circuit and we are all very excited about it. Thanks to the clubs of Pistoia, Catanzaro and Savona for their input and welcome to Atletico Vibo for joining in October.

Old rules in Catanzaro, Italy
The 20 Regional tournaments played this month have brought some positive facts:
- action going on in Switzerland;
- new organizers in Belgium: "Subbuteo Club Semois" (a new club) and "Black Devils Subbuteo" (a club created by some former Stembert players);
- a good tournament in North Shields (England);
- action in Scotland at Dundee United;
- several good events in Australia;
- a tournament played outside in Malta (!);
- nice events in Italy with several clubs involved: Pistoia, Firenze, Lazio;
- the Austrian Masters played under WASPA banner;
- Great Swiss system at Kent Invicta TF;
- Action in Florida;
- A great week-end of table football in Heraklion (Greece) with a WASPA tournament and a FISTF Satellite during the same week-end;
- 19 players for the first event of the season in Cyprus.

Nice people in Melbourne, Australia
Moreover, WASPA received from FISTF the trophy for "Best Promotion" at the recent ceremony of the "Subbuteo Oscars" during the world cup, which was a huge honor.
