Monthly report of March 2016

Dear players, here is the monthly report of the WASPA circuit. In March 2016 we had 25 regional tournaments and 5 tournaments with the old rules.

The 50th regional tournament in Templeuve had a good turnout of 22
* We were happy to see the first tournament organized by the club of "North Staffs" in England;
* The Templeuve United club hosted their 50th regional tournament;
* We included the results of the four legs of the Scottish circuit;
* We were happy to have 2 US winners in England (Paul O'Donovan Rossa in Enderby, Paul Eyes in London);
Old rules are still very popular in italy
* South Africa and Australia had 3 events in 3 different cities;
* Gabriele Silveri from Italy won the old rules tournament in Stoke on Trent (England);
* South Africa and Scotland are up in the top 5 of the ranking of nations;
* The total number of ranked players is down to 1593. Some nations like Portugal and Canada have lost most of their players in the ranking as almost no WASPA tournament had been organized in these countries in a recent past. Some other nations might also disappear of the ranking in the near future;
* The good news is that in general we have more players in tournaments than in the previous seasons (1800 after 7 months while we had 2981 in 12 months last season);
* Hopefully we will have the first event in Norway and New Zealand soon.
