2018 TSPA "flats" championship - 22nd April.

Post by Johnny Reb » 26 Feb 2018, 21:47

I am pleased to anounce that the 2018 TSPA flats championship will be held at :

The Montagu Club,
14 Hartford Road,
Huntingdon.
PE29 3QD
On Sunday 22th April, 2018
Start 10am – 5pm

Equipment used:
Subbuteo baize cloth(felt) pitches,
Subbuteo Flat playing bases or Swiss copies
Subbuteo celluliod or card flat playing figures or Swiss copies
Continental Ball (25mm dia) swiss ball

Rules:
English table soccer rules (very similar to Subbuteo advanced rules)

Only buffing of bases on a cloth or duster allowed, so plenty of "spin" and "curling" will be the order of the day.
The winner will recive The TSPA National Flats Championship Trophy, currently held by Kevin Dyson (last played for 2014?) and further awards will be given for runners-up and plate winner ect. There will also be a sportsmanship award given to the most sporting player at the championship, chosen by the players.
All equipment will be available to any player who does not own any "Retro" equipment. All that is required is your enthusiasm and ability to enjoy traditional table soccer and a few quid for entry fee.
Below is a list of players who have verbally shown an interest or have committed to play.
If you would like to enter or have any questions please e-mail or send a PM.

Congratulations go to Marco Ghigliotti on becoming the TSPA National "flats" champion of 2018.
Marco beat defending, and 5 times previous champion Kevin Dyson 1-0 in the Final.
Well done also to Gerald Brightwell on winning the plate final against Adam Douglas, who also picked up the sportsmanship award.
8 players entered this years tournament and enjoyed a great day of old style table soccer.
Thanks goes to all who supported this years event, and I hope those who were unable to make it this year can make it next time :)
