Selecting Australia's team for 2023

In the hope that a WESPA Scrabble Championship will be held in 2023, selection processes have begun. A team of 12? Australians will be selected by CASPA.
Eligibility: You must be an Australian citizen or permanent resident on 30 June 2023, and be a financial member of ASPA on 30 June 2023.

Selection by major titles

A maximum of two eligible players are selected by tournament success, namely

(1) The winner of the 2022 Australian Masters.
(2) The highest placed eligible Australian in the 2023 Australian Championship.

Players who qualify this way must also play 40 games recognised by ASPA during the qualifying period.
