- Transferts: many players usually decide to change club. When I get the FISTF database, I will update the WASPA records but sometimes we have issues with players deciding to play for a different club in the WASPA circuit. Feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org to report special situations;
- Top clubs: For the first season, the "top clubs" project managed to have 17 clubs involved. Congratulations to Jurong Central SC (Singapore) for finishing on top. I'm sure our friends from Singapore will do their best to stay on top next season. We really hope we will have more clubs joining the project soon. What are the conditions to become a top club?
a) having organized 5 WASPA events in the previous season (*);
b) having 5 WASPA events in the agenda for the new season;
c) having premises for local development;
d) having at least 8 players in the WASPA ranking (we might change this point to 5 players).
(*): new clubs can also join if they have players ranked in the FISTF rankings.
Several clubs are for sure entitled to become "top clubs": Famagusta TFC, SC Flanders, Attard SC, Harrow Hawks TFC, Club Subbuteo Firenze, London Road SC, Derry City TFC, Pireaus Lions TSC, Kebun Baru SC, Grand Rapids TSC, Sydney TFC. If you are interested to join, drop me a line at email@example.com;
- Special club projects: We have a Handbook but we remain Open to every proposal to make our circuit better. Some clubs have special requests and all ideas are welcome. For instance, the NETFA Brigantes (England) had a special circuit of "mini-leagues" under WASPA banner this season. For any idea, don't hesitate to drop me a line.
- WASPA events in FISTF tournaments: Many FISTF tournaments had some WASPA events besides the main categories. We must encourage organizers to continue to do that. Sometimes organizers are not aware WASPA or consolation events can be important. We need to support each other and see how we can make big events more attractive;
- Statistics: if anyone is interested to help to compile statistics, it would be more than welcome.
