The 2022 TFAS SG League resumes on April 24 at The Sports Hub Library after the 'international break' in March. 9 players took part and were randomly drawn into 3 groups of 3 for the first round of games. Thereafter, each player's placings in their respective group will determine the respective groups of 3 in the second round of games. Each player gets 4 games in total. By the end-of-day, Anas Rahamat came up tops by winning the April League session!! Well done and congratulations Anas!

Claudio Colpani was the winner for the evening with Vittorio de Pascale runner-up. A surprisingly cold evening for Italy this time, and nice to be inside in warm playing with friends.
Great fun, and special thanks again to Carlo, hosting the games.
Claudio Colpani (Papata Ponticino) 14
Vittorio de Pascale (SC Ligures) 12
Carlo Beretta (Valponte) 7

Eliot Kennedy claimed the chocolates when he won the April WASPA at the Northern Falcons, this time played on a Thursday night with the club packed with patrons.
Quite a bit of interest was generated and some calling cards handed out, so the extra vision might be useful.
Eliot started on fire, winning his group, but was pushed all the way by Western Sydney's Franck Cozzarin. Representatives of all four Sydney clubs were in attendance, with Geoff Sirmai (Hipfingerz) and Tony Credentino (Sydney TFC).
Old Falcon Frank Spanyik made his WASPA debut, pushing Geoff all the way in a 0-0 draw. Jonty Brener recovered from an opening 4-0 thumping by Eliot to qualify for the semis.
In another tense match, his semi against Steve went to shots, with Steve uncharacteristically holding out for a 4-3 win.
Tony recovered from his 2-1 loss to Geoff to scrape into the semis.
In the final, Eliot took a 2-0 lead with two great shots, before Steve fought back with a late goal, but Eliot held on to claim the Easter chocolate!

Subbuteo Sankt Pauli WASPA - 5th April 2022
9 players attended the tournament including some new faces! With such a high turnout and limited time it was decided to hold a draw with 4 games to be played by each player against random opponents so “luck of the draw” could be a major factor in the final placings. As it turned out the final games were to be played out amongst the top 4 to determine the winners.
Simon and Fred faced each other on table 3 whilst Sven and Marius played off on table 1 with the winner to be decided by these results. Sven and Marius battled to a 1-1 draw whilst Fred edged Simon in a close competitive game 2-0 to take his second WASPA title, and his first in Hamburg.
Big thank-you to everyone that turned up and especially the new players, the friendliness and openness to coaching the new attendees rather than win the competition on goal difference was a credit to our long standing members.
We’re there most Tuesdays, so get in contact if you’d like to join us on our club night!

Dear Subbuteo table football friends, you will find here the updated WASPA rankings and results.
|Players at the Ballymena tournament in Northern Ireland|
First of all my sincere apologies for those who didn't understand our joke on April 1. Unfortunately the top clubs in the WASPA rankings will not qualify for the FISTF' Champions League. Some thought it could be true but sorry, this was supposed to be funny... ;-)
Anyway, all your ideas to make our circuit more attractive are welcome. The feedback from players is always much appreciated!
|The Republic of Ireland is back!|
Well, March was another busy month with more and more events played under WASPA banner:
