Revision as of 01:10, 19 April 2009

Club SCRABBLE play in Canada and the United States is administered by NASPA and its Club Committee.

There are two types of club listings available.

NASPA-sanctioned Clubs:
We maintain a roster listing the NASPA-sanctioned clubs that meet across North America and their meeting times.
Casual Clubs:
The Casual Club listing may be found at the National SCRABBLE Association Casual Clubs web page. Club directors who choose that option as their only listing will not be listed on the NASPA club listing. If you choose that option you will find a form on that page to fill out to list your club.

Registering a Club

For NASPA-sanctioned clubs there is an annual club sanctioning fee of $30 which may be paid in one of the following manners:

  • by check (drawn on a U.S. bank) or money order, payable to NASPA (please specify Club # and specify sanctioning fee), sent to:
PO BOX 211993
BEDFORD, TX 76095-8993 
  • online through PayPal.com, paid to accounts@scrabbleplayers.org (if you do not have a PayPal account, you will need to provide a major credit card and set up a PayPal account). Please specify that this is a club sanctioning fee.
  • some Steering Committee members are willing to accept cash payments in person to forward on to NASPA
  • online payment through this web site using PayPal, eCheck or major credit cards will be available before July 1st, 2009

In order to maintain registration, clubs must meet the following criteria.

  • Club sanctioning must be renewed each year by paying the sanctioning fee.
  • The club director must be a sanctioned director, having taken and passed the director test.
  • Club directors’ NASPA membership status must be current and in good standing.

As stated above, club sanctioning fees will be valid until the end of 2010.

Registration Benefits

  • Listing of clubs on the NASPA website
  • Future website features for club directors only
  • Exclusivity:

Unless all club directors concerned have agreed, only one sanctioned club will be permitted to meet on any given day of the week within a 50-mile radius. The $30 fee entitles the director to this exclusivity on one day of the week of his or her choosing. If a director wants a club to meet on more than one day of the week, the director may pay additional $30 fees to obtain this same exclusivity, or not pay additional fees and not receive exclusivity.

Registered Clubs

Clubs will be listed when their annual US$30 sanctioning fees are paid. The initial sanctioning fee will be valid until the end of 2010. Thereafter, ongoing club sanctions will begin on January 1 and end on December 31.

Club web sites may be listed as long as they do not contain inappropriate material or links to inappropriate material as periodically reviewed by the Club Committee.

Unless otherwise requested, only the first director listed in the response to the NASPA request for club information will be listed.
