|Finalists in Montornes des Valles (Spain)|
Dear Subbuteo fans, we are pleased to publish the latest WASPA tables. Once again July was a great wonth with 25 tournaments played under WASPA banner.
If you think some results were forgotten, don't hesitate to send us a line.
Some highlights of the month:
- we see continuous development in England with great events being held in Andover, Morecambe Bay, Dagenham (home of the Chasers club), Wolverhampton, Worthing, Stanway, Haverhill, Rochford, Harrow,... It was awesome to see the Andover tournament attracting a great field of 24 players.
- Our Australian friends had events in Sydney and Perth;
- South Africa is still doing well with tournaments run by the clubs of Easterns TFS, ETS Subbuteo Club and Cape Town city;
- The level of play in Spain was great at the Montornes des Valles tournament, where 18 players were taking part and Ferran Coll defeated Vicenç Prats in the final;
- We are glad to see small but important events in bande (Belgium), Wrexham (Wales), Dublin (Ireland), Broughshane (Northern Ireland);
- The Singapore League still has regular games under WASPA banner;
- There was a good event with old rules in Casatenovo, Italy. Claudio Colpani and Vittorio de Pascale do a great work to revive interest in their area;
- We are happy to see 2 old rules tournaments were played in England, one of them was played with flat figures.

As for the rankings, the big change is the new leader in the Development League as Solent Subbuteo Club (England) is now number 1.
Don't hesitate to run tournaments under the WASPA banner. It's a great way to promote your club, to attract new players and to create local or regional development and we all agree this is what the game needs nowadays.
