Competing in the 21st annual Scrabble for Fun tournament at the Dunningham Suite, at Dunedin Library, is Jensen Pesa (9), of Pine Hill School.

Dunedin Scrabble Club president Ruth Groffman said this year’s tournament, held on Wednesday, drew 20 pupils from four primary schools across the city.

Eight pupils could not make the tournament due to icy roads, she said.

East Taieri School’s Rua team played particularly well, Mrs Groffman said.
