Dear Subbuteo friends,
we are excited to present the final WASPA standings for the season 2021-2022.
|London Road Subbuteo Club players did an amazing job and dominated most WASPA tables this season|
You will see in the files that there are some surprises.
The Open ranking has seen unexpected moves in August and the top 2 players, Brian Daley and Alan Lee, finish the season with respectively 521,00 and 520,95 points. Brian Daley also wins the season ranking and his club, the young Ruby Matthews wins the junior ranking and London Road SC is the big winner in the "Top clubs" and "Junior clubs" tables.
In the Development League, Solent SC is the big champion this season while Worthing is runner-up and Terni takes the third place. These three teams are promoted to the "Top clubs" section for next season.
|Singapore players still compete on regular base in WASPA events|
There is no surprise in the ranking of nations as England is the absolute number 1.
The big news in the rankings is that we added 5 new clubs in the Development league and that Finland is back in the ranking of nations!
As for August, we had an amazing month with 30 regional tournaments, 2 tournaments with the old rules and 1 test-match in the US.

Among the big facts, we can note we had the first events of the Leicester club in England and the Tralee and Munster club in Ireland. The Chasers clubs has also an impressive debut with some new players involved.
The US were back in action with a good event held in Virginia. Thanks to Bryan Arnold for making things happen.
You will see in the results file the details of all these events. Enjoy!
Please note that:
- the season file with a recap of results and statistics will be out as soon as possible;
- the updated list of clubs for the new season will also be updated in the next few days so that the "Top clubs" and "Development league" can clearly be defined;
- The junior category for the new season will be open for players born in 2006 or later.
