Waterford Scrabble Tournament - Woodlands Hotel

Waterford Scrabble Tournament – October 2022

The 2022 Waterford Scrabble tournament was held on Sat 1st and Sun 2nd of October 2022 in the Woodlands Hotel and Leisure Centre.

A great weekend was had by all. We had 5 completely new players, and one new to Ireland – it was wonderful to see so many new faces, and we hope they’ll all return to future events!
