ASPA ACT is pleased to announce the venue for the 2018 Communities at Work Australian Scrabble Championship has been finalised.
The event will be held at Manuka Oval
located on Manuka Circuit in the suburb of Griffith.
The Championship is open to international, as well as local, players, with the first international winning the main event in 1995. In recent years, players from New Zealand, Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand have all been greeted with typical Australian hospitality and joined the many locals to vie for the title in what is always an enjoyable event.
There are two Divisions at each Championship, each running for 24 rounds. The Main Division determines the National Champion and usually has a minimum Australian rating of 1300, allowing players under that rating to take part in the Plate Division, thus ensuring the Easter tournament caters to players at all levels.
Along with the photos of the recent winners photographed above, the overall honour board features many familiar names on both the domestic and international circuit and is included below:
