This is a sister group to the Hong Kong Social Scrabble Meetup, for those more experienced Scrabble players who would like to take part in competitive play.
Primarily we organise "open" tournaments which are for anyone who wishes to play, provided that you are familiar with the rules of Scrabble and happy to play to the constraints of a timer. Our tournaments generally run with 25 minutes per player per game as the time limit for daytime weekend events and 22 minutes for evening events (just to keep the finish time reasonable). As a rule of thumb, if you don't regularly score over 350 points in 2-player games, and if you don't know the CSW15 2-letter word list, then you may find yourself struggling. The results of our tournaments normally contribute to the rating & ranking system run by the Hong Kong Scrabble Players Association.
We do occasionally organise "invitational" tournaments, where the criterion for an invitation is generally to have achieved a certain rating in the HKSPA system.
Note that some of our tournaments are played in venues where there is an age limit of 18 years and a dress code requirement.
The HKSPA has a group on the Telegram platform which can be accessed via this link (assuming you have the Telegram app/client installed): https://telegram.me/joinchat/A9pYx0BWDd-HvkH2vktp7g
