We study the eta' to eta pi pi decay within an effective chiral Lagrangian approach in which the lowest lying scalar meson candidates sigma(560) and kappa(900) together with the f0(980) and a0(980) are combined into a possible nonet. We show that there exists a unique choice of the free parameters of this model which, in addition to fitting the pi pi and pi K scattering amplitudes, well describes the experimental measurements for the partial decay width of eta' to eta pi pi and the energy dependence of this decay. As a by-product, we estimate the a0(980) width to be 70 MeV, in agreement with a new experimental analysis.
