In December we had some great events in several national. In total, 17 regional tournaments and 3 tournaments with the old rules have been organized under WASPA banner and 27 players made their first WASPA appearance.

Austria welcomed the second representative of Afghanistan in a tournament in Vienna.
Regular organizers such as Dundee United (Scotland), Melbourne and Brisbane (Australia), Firenze (Italy), Lincoln (England), S Flanders and Warcoing (Belgium), Jurong Central (Singapore) and the Linth Sliders (Switzerland) held good tournaments. Verviers and the "Etoile Sarthoise" in Belgium held their 2nd tournaments with very good turnouts of 14 and 12.
We were happy to see the first tournament in Thessaloniki (Greece) and Volos might be the next Greek city to host WASPA events.
Italy is still very active in the old rules circuit with events organized in Florence, Pistoia and Catanzaro.
