Dear all, you will find in the attached files the results of the WASPA circuit and the monthly standings and statistics. Here are some news about what happened in February.
Junior tournament in Sydney
- We had 29 regional events and 3 promotional tournaments but also a test-match in the USA;
- Two clubs have asked to join the top clubs project: Marina Citerior SC from Spain (confirm) and Lincoln Flickers from England (waiting for details);
- The Greek club of Panorama 1978 SC Thessaloniki has hosted a very first WASPA tournament;
- Malta is back in action. The first two events of the season on the island have been held in two different places by two different clubs (Bormla and Attard);
- Last week-end we reached the number of 1500 regional tournaments since the launch of the circuit back in April 2011;
- WASPA events have been held during FISTF tournaments in Harrow (England), Glasgow (Scotland) and Bormla (Malta), proving the good work together between WASPA and FISTF is a reality;
- Our top club of Grand Rapids TSC in Michigan has organized a first tournament this season;
- The club of Northern Falcons in Sydney held a tournament only for juniors, which is fantastic;
- The tournament in Javea (Spain) on February 24 had only 7 players taking part but 4 different nationalities were represented;
- the Greek event in Kallithea had the best turnout of the month with 20 entries.
Players in Lincoln, England

We have 1559 players from 46 nations in the ranking (unfortunately we lost Malaysia). Geoffrey Marain (Belgium) is still the leader of the individual ranking while Benny Ng (Australia) is the leader of the season ranking. Greece is now in fourth position in the ranking of nations. The Flaming Flickers SC (Greece) are the leaders in the ranking of top clubs.

Maybe some results didn't arrive in due time and will be added next month.
A new club in Greece
We have exciting news for the forthcoming standings of March as 2 new clubs have organized their first WASPA tournament last week-end in Tucson (USA) and Toronto (Canada).
