Rick has been playing Scrabble since a spell on the dole in the mid 1980s. He never thought he was good enough to play in tournaments, but once he read "Word Freak" he decided to give it a go, and found it was nowhere near as daunting as he expected.
Rick is a member of Sutton Coldfield club, and organises a number of tournaments around Birmingham. He is a nurse, and has a young family, so doesn't get to play as many tournaments as he would like. If you have any queries or updates about clubs then please let me know.
