Revision as of 01:42, 22 October 2018

One of the key strengths of the SCRABBLE game is that it can be enjoyed at many different levels. Recognizing that not everyone wants to learn a set of tournament rules or even study the official word list, we established our list of Recreational Clubs in July 2013. We hope that after you have played at a Recreational Club for a while, you'll want to see if you've got what it takes at one of our competitive clubs.

Registering a Recreational Club

To register a new club, complete the Club Listing Request form and submit it.

In order to maintain registered status, clubs must meet the following criteria:

Changing Club Information
