Association of British Scrabble Players

Paula Davenport - Youth/Schools officer

I'm a full-time School Librarian with a maths degree, hence the love of Scrabble. Currently, I'm in the middle of an Art A-level, that I'm doing for fun... (well, that was the idea!) I get to make ace stuff out of glass! Scrabble tournaments? I've done one! Why not more? Er, they're expensive...and I kept waking up the neighbours in the middle night shouting 'Is that a word?' And, I quite like my neighbours.. So, really I'm a home/school Scrabble player who is rather enthusiastic about the game. I run an annual in-school tournament which is good fun, and we at Idsall regularly meet up with another school for inter-school friendlies. And last year's UK Youth championships were held at Idsall which I was very proud to help with. Sarah Wilks, Karen Richards and Phillip Nelkon were fab! Hobbies are: Photography, reading, gym (I am not healthy!), and doing crafty/arty things.
