The Rokel Commercial Bank (RCBank) in collaboration with the Sierra Leone National Scrabble Association (NSASL) will be holding a National Scrabble Tournament on August 18, 2023, as a way to get scrabblers in Sierra Leone ready for the country's hosting of the African Scrabble Championship in October of 2024.
The NSASL is hoping that the tournament will help to raise the level of scrabble in Sierra Leone and to encourage more people to participate in the sport.
The tournament will be played under the official World Scrabble Federation (WSF) rules.
It will be starting at 10:00 AM at the Freetown Amusement Park Hall (Victoria Park).
The tournament is open to all levels of players, from beginners to experienced scrabblers.
There will be a cash prize for the winner, as well as prizes for the runner-up and the third-place finishers.
