NZ has historically done very well in international tournaments, especially considering our small population base. Our best results were in 2007, 2011 and 2013 when Nigel Richards won the Scrabble World Championship/Scrabble Champions Tournament. Nigel is originally from Christchurch and is now resident in Malaysia, but often represents NZ. Nigel is the first player to win more than one World Scrabble Championship. He has also won numerous national championships around the world, including the French National Championship in 2015 and 2018 even though he doesn’t speak more than a few words of French.
