Dear friends, you will find in the attached files the updated WASPA rankings. This is the first update of the rankings for the season 2021-2022, which means the individual "season ranking" and the different rankings of clubs start from scratch.

You will see that Alan Lee is still the number 1 player and that England is on top of the ranking of nations. The first leader of the season ranking is Ireland's Mark Farrell who recently won the All-Ireland championship in Derry, the tournament was played under WASPA banner. Surrey Saracens SC (England) is on top of the "top clubs" table while the Italians of TSC 69ers are the first leaders of the Development league. We are glad to add 5 new clubs in the Development League, which is great.
Welcome to the Italians of Club Rebels Genova who are a new entry in the WASPA ranking of clubs for Juniors. It will be more important than ever to try to have young players invovled and both the individual and club rankings for juniors (players born in 2005 or later) will be a huge priority this season.

If you have a look at the results, you will see that 25 tournaments have been played in September. There were also 2 test-matches played in Belgium. Our friends from Terni played an "old rules" event, Derry held the "All-Ireland National Cup" and Templeuve had a promotional tournament. The other 22 tournaments were "regional" events. There was less activity than usual in some nations and some clubs still have restrictions to run big events but we are very please dto see things slowly back to normal.
