Selection process

This is an invitational event where players are selected by each participating country. For Australia the selection is done by the Council of Australian Scrabble Players Association. The rules for selection for free entry (ie the Australian quota places) in 2022 are:

The secondary criterion is number of rated games within the qualification period. If two players have the same peak rating, the one with the greater number of games in the qualification period is ranked higher.

Please inform Tony Hunt ( if you are aware of any other young Australian Scrabble players. Tony will check age requirements and advise on registration.
