Subbuteo table football is back in Perth

There are good signs of hope for all table football fans around the world. The first WASPA tournament after the lockdown took place on Saturday in Perth, Australia. The local group was proud to become the first Subbuteo Club in the World to start up again. They obliged and met all the Covid19 guidelines in order to restart according to Western Australia laws currently in place from the State government (rules differ in other states).

"We have one active case now in Western Australia, which is nearly the size of Europe with just 2.8 million population. We also took all precautions on the Saturday when we hosted a WASPA league format. We are nearly at stage 3 restrictions here which effectively means we are clear until we open up our boarders which have now been closed since early March here", commented Ross McNulty after the tournament.

As a reminder, WASPA tournaments will only be allowed in countries where clubs have the approval of the local government. Until them, stay safe and take care of yourself and your family!

Final standings of the Perth tournament:
1. Ross McNulty
2. Alan Kimber
3. Noel Mani
4. Ron Byrne
5. Chris Thorn
6. Adam Taylor

WASPA rankings of April 2020

Dear Subbuteo friends, you will find in the attached link the monthly standings of the WASPA circuit.

No need to say there are not many changes as we had absolutely no activity in April. Our priority right now is to be sure all our players and their families are doing well.

There will be better days for all of us and we are sure that there will soon be a time to play some WASPA tournaments again.

As the organizer of the WASPA circuit, I want to send my support to all local organizers who have to keep the faith in these difficult days. Please continue to promote your club and your activities. It's important to communicate and to keep the interest for the game alive.
We have seen on several different Facebook groups that many people wanted to get info about the game (in particular in the UK) and we are sure that once things go back to normal, there will be some people wanting to attend our tournaments.

We got news from Australia, Malta and Spain where some local projects are under way for next season. We are also glad to see that many events are already in the agenda for next season in the UK.

Back to the rankings, we lost the players who attended their last event in April 2018, which means we lost about 40 players this month. There are very small changes in the overall ranking and the junior ranking.

We really hope to get feedback from as many of you to know what you expect from WASPA for the future as we can start preparing next season already!

If some juniors (born in 2003 or later) don't appear in the ranking, it means we don't have their birthdates so please send your feedback.

Please remember you only need 3 players to register your tournament. Don't be scared to join. It's free and tournament requests can be sent by e-mail to or

Please invite your friends to join our Facebook group at
Keep in mind WASPA is also looking for partners. If you know any company ready to support us (we don’t ask for money but we want some win-win agreements so that we can promote each other), don't hesitate to contact me at or 
Ideas to develop the WASPA circuit, to get new clubs/nations involved or to make things more attractive are always welcome. We stay at your disposal for more info.

Please take care of yourself. Stay safe!
