Latest revision as of 12:24, 16 May 2019

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

Please keep us up to date when things change at your recreational club. Send changes pertaining to club location, meeting time, address, email, website, or anything shown on your club listing to the Club Committee  naspa-club-directors@yahoogroups.com.
