WASPA monthly standings of June 2018

Dear friends,
here are the standings of the WASPA circuit after the events held in June.

WASPA Season results 2017-2018
WASPA ranking - June 18

Amazing tournament in Budapest
We are very happy to see some great developments, in particular we had a great WASPA world cup for the first time on June 30 and July 1. The friends from Budapest have been perfect hosts and it was a good week-end where players from several nations had the chance to meet and play a lot of games. Huge thanks to the Budapest club for running a great week-end in a superb venue. We are now thinking about the future of the world cup and we are open to all proposals to make something successful again next season. Finally, congratulations to Christian Filippella who lives in California and won both events (Saturday and Sunday), proving he's a fantastic player.

Great field of 20 players in Templeuve
We also had 25 regional tournaments, 2 promotional events and 1 tournament with old rules. Australia is really a very active nations with a total of 8 events held in June. They deserve credit for what they are doing to promote the game. We have also been pleased to see three great tournaments in the USA, in particular the first event held in Portland, Oregon. Canada is back in action with more events in Toronto and Mike Sgro is doing a good job to try to put things in place in other cities. The Templeuve club (Belgium) was glad to have the visit of Northern Ireland's Craig Stewart for a great week-end of play. Malta held the third event of the season with a good turnout of 12 in Attard. Wales is a growing nation with always successful events in Drury and Knighton. There were 2 events in Singapore and for the first time we had a winner from Hong Kong so congratulations to Antonio Carabillo for putting another country in the highlights! Finally, well done Greece for continuing to organize events with the old rules.
