Toronto 2023

Date and Location

It’s back! The 2023 Toronto School Scrabble Championship will be held on Thursday, February 23, 2023 from 9:30am-2:30pm at St. Pius X Catholic School (map).
This school is close to Jane subway station of the TTC. Parking at the school is unlikely due to limited space, but street/paid parking lots are available nearby.


The events will have a similar format to tournaments from previous years with the emphasis on friendly rivalry. There will be a variety of prizes for being a good sport, theme words, and participation. As this is the first year of our return to play, we will not be holding separate qualifiers and finals. Plans are underway for a separate tournament in Peel region in the spring, so schools further west may wish to wait for that announcement.

3 rounds
2 on 2
25 minutes total for each team
Divisions are arranged by grades: 4 (Junior), 5-6 (Mid-low), 7-8 (Mid-high), 9-12 (Senior)
Grade fours will play with other grade fours in a Junior tournament. The tournament organizers reserve the right to make any format change and will do so based on the volume of registration at each level.

Game equipment will be provided. You can find docs on how to play on our website. Your players should have been playing a little bit prior to the tournament as we do not have the capacity to teach them the basic rules during the event, but do not let that discourage you from participating as we strive to make it inclusive and fun for all.
