|Some news faces appeared at the latest event in Tournai, Belgium|
Dear friends, you will find here the updated WASPA results and rankings as per the end of April 2022.
We are extremely happy because we had 34 tournaments in April, which is a really big number proving that the activity of Subbuteo table football tournaments is back to normal in many countries. Cyprus and Austria had their first event for 2 years and we are glad to see 25 players making their debut in the WASPA circuit. Numbers as slowly rising again, which is a very encouraging sign. it's also good to see the number of juniors rising to 85 but we are sure we can do much better in the future. The youth must be a priority for our clubs as only 7 clubs have 3 juniors involved and can appear in the junior ranking of clubs.
