Australia has a new Number 1 ranked player! Congratulations to Giuseppe Tardiota who has climbed the rankings steadily and now finds himself at the summit of the WASPA (World Amateur Subbuteo Players’ Association) rankings. It is a reflection of the movement of the Brisbane based players in general, whose regular tournaments have seen them improve consistently. Most of the other positions have remained fairly consistent, with small place movements up and down the list. In keeping with our continual, gradual growth, 5 new names have been added to the rankings list, bringing the Australian total to 118 players who have competed in WASPA Tournaments over the last 2 years.
FISTF have not updated their rankings since July 1, so nothing to report there. However, with the World Cup last week and the Australian Open happening next weekend in Melbourne, expect to see plenty of chart movement in the FISTF rankings in the near future.
