Top players do battle in letters

Several players at the tournament had also competed internationally.

New Zealand’s top Scrabble players gathered at the Mahurangi East Community Centre last month for the Rodney Scrabble Club tournament.

Forty-four players from all over the country played seven games in six grades on November 9.

Rodney Scrabble Club spokesperson Sandy Garman says there was a strong A-grade presence and a number of players present had competed internationally.

Overall tournament winner was Alistair Richards, a member of the Christchurch Scrabble Club.

Sandy says there were many opportunities to earn prizes in all grades, depending on skill and a great deal of luck.

“It was a very successful tournament and players look forward to another tournament here in two years,” she says.

Anyone interested in Scrabble is welcome to come along to the Rodney Scrabble Club. The club meets every Monday from 1-4pm at Totara Park village for friendly and competitive games. The first visit is free.

The first Scrabble afternoon for 2020 will be on Monday, January 13.
