Cape Town International Scrabble Tournament

Welcome

South Africa welcomes scrabblers from all parts of the world to one of the world’s most beautiful cities, Cape Town.

Cape Town International 2016 was a huge success with top players in the world participating. Nigel Richards was the eventual winner. Cape Town International 2018 promises to be bigger and better. We are hoping a larger international contingent will participate because the tournament is divided into 3 categories to include a wider range of players. Furthermore Cape Town is a tourist paradise with a variety of places of interest: restaurants, beaches and outdoor activities. Monday 5th a planned tour of the city has been arranged, no charge, please book early with Zubeida Brey
zubeida.brey@telkomsa.net

We look forward to welcome and host you at the 2018 Cape Town International Scrabble Championships.

Gerald Davids – South African Scrabble President
