How to join our club
Scrabble fixtures are organised for weekday evenings any weekday evening, or any afternoon by special arrangement,
at hosts around Greater London.
Play just once or twice a month or every week, as you prefer.
Fixtures consist of 4 players, playing 3 games each, in a round robin format, with points awarded to 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th.
Fixtures start at 7:30 p.m. aiming to finish by 11:15 p.m. at the latest.
The six month season starts on the first Mondays of April/October of the calendar year.
At the end of a six month season money prizes, cups and scrolls are awarded to those at the top of the league,
to Most Improved Players, highest word scores and for personal game bests.

THE AIM OF THE CLUB
Our club welcomes experienced players of all standards.
Our main activity is the League competition, running from April to September and from October to March each year.
A monthly League Table shows each player's position; trophies and small prizes are awarded every season.
Matches are played in groups of four. Each person plays the other three in turn; points are given for wins/aggregate scores/high scores.
As far as we can, we arrange fixtures to fit the pattern of frequency (etc.) which each member selects.
They take place on weekday evenings from 7.30pm to about 10.45pm. (11.15 at the very latest).
You can either host all your fixtures or play them 'away' or both, in any proportion that suits you.
However, we urge you NOT to host in your FIRST season unless you have to because of, say, disability.
Apart from such 'formal' fixtures, members can arrange between themselves their own matches on any day of the week and at any time.
(Valid for the League table).
The current fee of £20.00 (or £10.00 for only emailed material) applies to two seasons (April-September 2020/October 2020-March 2021)
or to any part of it.
The Drive venues are at Swiss Cottage and Chigwell. Shepherds Bush has also been used. New Malden Drives are no longer running.
Drives are open to all who wish to play, with new faces welcome. The entry fee for Drives is £5.00. Please see the separate entry for
Sunday Drives to see confirmed dates, how to get there, what to bring and starting times.
