Monthly report of the WASPA circuit - November 2016

Dear all, like every month, here are the monthly standings of the WASPA circuit.

The Excel file (fulle rankings, main statistics)
The PDF file (results, statistics, ranking)

It has been a very busy month as I have added records of 35 tournaments (33 "regional", 1 "old rules", 1 "national cup")

Derry City TFC in Northern Ireland had their first tournament
Four clubs have organized their very first WASPA event:
- London Road SC (WAL)
- SC Temploux (BEL)
- VGE Subbuteo Szombathely (HUN)
- Derry City TFC (NIR)

Tournament played with the old rules in Macerata, Italy
We have already had tournaments in 19 different countries since the beginning of the season and we have more events in the agenda scheduled in New Zealand, Germany, the Netherlands and Spain.

Please note in the "Golden book" some results might not appear in the right order, sorry for that. We have added a tournament played in October in the US in November we have had great improvements and some superb events.

Junior players at the National Championships in Cape Town, South Africa
For the first time South Africa had a National Cup under WASPA banner and it is fantastic to see that players from Pretoria and Johannesburg travelled to Cape Town for the event. There was an impressive field of 26 entries, which is awesome.

There were small and big events but it was always something special for the players taking part. It as also great to see some nations having a revival like Northern Ireland, Indonesia, the Czech Republic, Canada and Hungary.

Players in Melbourne, Australia
Belgium, England and Australia have regular tournaments in several different clubs and that's also very positive.

10 clubs have joined the "top clubs" project and we have three pending applications.

Well, that's all for now. I hope you will love the statistics, results and rankings.
