NEW: WM2022 Registration Form

Please take note that the registration link to the ISPA World website on the Tournaments 2022 page has been replaced with a printable registration form in English. Alternatively, access it directly  here.

Page 1 is to register and page 2 is some important text and the schedule of the event to know for our players. These 2 pages can be printed. Back to back, for players who like to register. Keep in mind anyone who registers has to make a down payment of 250 Euros, which is equivalent to 357 Can$ or 286 US$ using today's currency exchange!

The German registration form is still accessible on the Tournaments 2022 page or directly here.

The latest news from the ISPA USA President:

Dear ISPA USA members,


I am sad to inform you that the upcoming event in Las Vegas will be postponed until the last weekend of June, due to indications of a financially insufficient turnout from Covid-affected airline logistics and serious concerns about playing expressed from a number of the participants.  We deeply regret any personal inconvenience this may cause.  It is a situation that is beyond our control.
