Australian Scrabble Championship 2015

The Australian Scrabble Players Association has so many things for Scrabble Players. There are clubs, resources and regular tournaments. The most important tournament is the Australian Scrabble Championship. It attracts players from all around Australia, and overseas. Each state takes a turn to host the event, and this time it is Victoria's turn. Two recently introduced traditions will continue: the jarping of the egg, and the dream team competition. A presentation dinner will be held at the venue on Monday night.

Timetable

This is the planned tournament schedule. The tournament director may vary this to adapt to circumstances. Lunchtimes are staggered to lessen queues and seating requirements. The Australian draw will have a reset at the end of each day, so this will ensure you do not play anyone a second time within each day.
