The 5th World Youth Scrabble Championship (WYSC) will tentatively be held on 8th to 10th December 2010 in Manila, Philippines. It is estimated that Singapore will receive places for eight participants.

Eligibility Criteria

A person will be eligible for consideration to represent Singapore in WYSC 2010 only if he/she:

  1. is an SA member and Singapore citizen/PR from the end of the qualifying period to the date of WYSC

  2. is 17 years old of age or less as of 31 December 2010.

  3. has played at least 24 rated games from end of WYSC 2009 till Grandeur 8 (tentatively scheduled for 23 Oct 10) competition, inclusive. Byes will not be used in calculation of ratings. Byes awarded to a player will count towards the 24 games. Byes conceded by a player will not count towards the 24 games.

  4. has an SA rating of at least 1500 at the end of the qualifying period.

Selection Criteria

The estimated eight spots will be given to eight highest-ranked players at the end of the WYSC qualifying period based on SA ratings who fulfil all the eligibility criteria above.

Reserves will also be selected, as possible replacements for any of the Singapore representatives in the event that any of the representatives are not able to play in the WYSC. Reserves will be the next-highest-rated player(s) who are eligible as determined by the same eligibility criteria above.

If any of the WYSC spots is vacant because the player declines or becomes ineligible, the spot will be offered to the reserves in rating order. For any queries on the selection for WYSC 2010, please email your question to or send a text message to the President at 97874640. In the event of a dispute during the selection process, SA Committee will be the arbiter, and their decision is final.
