As of 2013-06-30, NASPA is considering establishing a second type of club in the wake of the dissolution of the NSA, as follows.

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.

Establishing a Recreational Club

If you are a NASPA member, you can set up a Recreational Club by emailing us at info@scrabbleplayers.org with the following information:

  1. Name of your club, if any (e.g., SCRABBLE Players of Anytown)
  2. Meeting schedule (e.g., Tuesdays at 6:00 P.M.)
  3. Meeting location (e.g., Anytown Community Ctr, 123 Main Street)
  4. Nearest town or city
  5. State or province (for trademark reasons, you must operate in the United States or Canada)
  6. Your name and contact information as you want it to appear
  7. Your NASPA membership ID

and your agreement that you will abide by the Code of Conduct and the list of responsibilities of all directors.
