It has been another busy month with records of 31 extra tournaments (29 "regional", 2 "promotional").
Four clubs have organized their very first WASPA event:
Palmerston North SC (New Zeland)
JSC Rochefort (Belgium)
Sydney TFC (Australia)
Proteas Athens SC (Greece)
|The first WASPA event in New Zealand|
Thanks to all the organizers who have helped to make WASPA a success story in 2016. The circuit has been growing and the Subbuteo community takes WASPA more and more seriously as our tournaments are more and more attractive.

In December the "WASPA Test Matches" have been launched. It's a new project to promote friendly relations between players from different countries or different areas. Sometimes, when two players from different countries meet, they find it difficult to know the standards of play in their respective countries. As WASPA is a good way to have players meeting for some games, we have started the idea of “test match series”. For instance, if a player from South Africa is travelling to Sydney, Australia on holiday, there is sometimes no opportunity to attend a tournament but it’s possible to contact a player from the home club to arrange a “test match series”. The “distance” criteria will remain open to interpretation (for instance 2 US players from different States can play “test match series”). See more details on the WASPA blog!
