Wordplay Tournament - 11 May 2006

CYD, the Welsh-learners organisation, have launched a  Scrabble yn Gymraeg (Welsh Scrabble) national tournament, which is open to fluent Welsh speakers as well as to learners. Local rounds will be held throughout Wales, culminating in the final to be held at the National Eisteddfod at Swansea in August. ‘I think it’s a brilliant idea,’ said Nia Parry, Welsh language tutor and TV celebrity, who presents S4C’s popular programme Cwpwrdd Dillad. ‘I want to see the competition succeed and I urge people of all ages and from all over Wales to join us.’ For further information regarding the tournament contact CYD at Aberystwyth on 01970 622143. Welsh Scrabble sets are on sale at most bookshops or on www.gwales.com
