Dear Subbuteo fans, here are the monthly updates of the WASPA circuit after the 24 régional tournament, 1 tournament played with the old rules and 2 test-matches held in July. Huge thanks to the organizers for giving us the feeling that things are slowly back to normal. This is very encouraging for the future and we are very happy to see more and more clubs holding tournaments under WASPA banner.
|A great night of play in Derry, Northern Ireland|
There were many tournaments in England in July and we can thank the different local organizers for promoting the game at regional level. We were also glad to see tournaments in Wrexham (Wales) and Derry (Northern Ireland).
|Great tournament in Baden Baden, Germany|
In other countries, the situation is also going better with two events held in Belgium, one in the Netherlands, one in the USA, two in Singapore, two in Greece, three in Australia but the "big hit" of the month was the tournament held in Baden Baden, Germany with six players from 5 different nations playing home and away games. Huge thanks to Milan Knezevic for hosting the event! Also special thanks to the H'Attard club in Malta for organizing another good event.
|Players in Templeuve, Belgium|
As for the rankings, congratulations to Alan Lee for being the new number 1 in the individual table. Alan is also the leader of the season ranking while Evangelos Kotrotsos is the best junior. England is on top of the rankings of nations while the best clubs are Subbuteo Perth (Top Clubs section), Johannesburg TFC (Development League) and London Road Subbuteo Club (Junior clubs).
