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

We meet most weekends in the upstairs cafe inside the Market Street grocery store in Grapevine, TX. To make sure we are meeting on the upcoming weekend, send me (Kate Watson) an email or text or call me. We will not meet if most of our regular players are out of town.
To find your way to the upstairs event space, take the stairs or one of the elevators located at the front of the store to the second floor. We normally play in the area called the Event Space. (You might have to go through the gift shop area to find it.)
We have tournament players and welcome any casual player. Come join us. Bring Scrabble equipment if you have it. If not, come anyway! This is a great way to be introduced to playing SCRABBLE face to face.
