Despite the restrictions in many areas, we continue to receive results from different countries. Here is a quick summary of results collected from Italy, England and Belgium.
Italy: Terni is the most active club in the world nowadays
|The Perotti family members are playing several times a week|
We continue to receive results from Terni where the Perotti family is holding more and more gatherings under WASPA banner. The last few tournament saw victories for Emanuele (1), Simone (2) and Marco (1) in always close games. The club of "SC Terni 2014" has already held 11 tournaments with the old rules (and as a reminder, a club can hold a maximum of 12 tournaments with old rules per season). Thanks to the Perotti family for the huge support, considering the last tournament (held on April 17) was a way to celebrate the 10th birthday of the WASPA circuit. More tournaments should be played in Terni in the future and will count for the new Italian WASPA ranking run by Gianpaolo Abagnale.
England: Wolverhampton had a great outdoor session
In England, the Wolverhampton players are eager to play again and Justin Scott sent us results of a small tournament with just three players. Players met each other twice and Justin Scott finished on top with 7 points while Richard Badger had 5 and Mick Hammonds was third with 4 points. Hopefully the Wolverhampton club will be allowed to hold a real tournament in their premises soon.
Test-matches in Italy and Belgium
|The pitch of the test-match in the Bonomo family|
WASPA lockdown test-matches continue to be played and we have been glad to receive results from Italy and Belgium. In Teramo, the young Nicolò Bonomo defeated his father Massimiliano in a three games session. It's fantastic to see a young boy (8 years old) making a great debut in the WASPA circuit.
|Marain vs Coppenolle|
In Belgium, Geoffrey Marain (AS Hennuyer), former number 1 in the circuit, played 2 different opponents in the last few days. On Sunday, Marain defeated Vincent Coppenolle (Templeuve United) in a 3 games session and didn't even let his opponent score a goal.
|Boulanger vs Marain|
On Sunday, Geoffrey's guest was Richard Boulanger (USC Huy). Marain won the four games played but it was great to see Richard travelling by train for two hours to meet his old rival.
We will be back in the next few days with more results from Australia as our friends down under had tournaments in Sydney, Perth and Brisbane in the last few days.
