The above list contains those events approved for ratings purposes by the Tournament Coordinator, plus other significant Scrabble events. Please email us with any omissions or errors.

Further details are given, in a standard format, for most one-day tournaments; click on the event to see more. Weekend tournaments usually have too much information to give in a standard format; click on the event to download the entry form if it is available. Prospective entrants are requested to get in touch with the organiser if they would like any further information. For some matches the number of rounds is a 'best of' figure, for example the BEST Quarter-Finals are 'best of 15 games'. This is shown by ~15 in the Rounds column.

Unless specified otherwise, the details for the tournaments assume the following:

 • Positions are determined on wins and spread (winning margins)
 • If you are a new player you will usually be placed in the lowest division for your first event, if you would like to play in a higher group please speak to the organiser in advance.
 • Entries are at the sole discretion of the Tournament Organiser
 • You must always include a SAE with your entry for application
 • Please arrive on time
