History: The Tel-Aviv Scrabble® Club in its present format was opened in late November 1998. Averaging about a dozen players a week at the time, often fewer, the club gradually began to grow, and we currently average 25-30 players on any given Monday. Click here for a brief history of our club.
Venue: The club meets every Monday at 19:15 at the International Chess Centre on Tagore 26. Play begins at 19:30 sharp (it's essential to arrive before then to be paired for the first game). Click here for a map.
Players: Whether you are a beginner or an expert - you will feel quite at home in our friendly club, as we have several players at all levels of play. Previous club or tournament experience is not a prerequisite! Just show up on time. Click here to read about our members.
Format: There are three divisions in the club. Ten of our top players compete in the Aardvark Division and the rest compete in two divisions according to their level of play: Madoqua, the intermediate division, and Zyzzyva, the third division. New players automatically join the "Guest" division and, after 12 games, are promoted to Madoqua or Zyzzyva, depending on their performance. We play 3 games an evening. The pairings are done by the club director according to a player's record and experience - i.e. you'll be playing 3 games with three different people at your level of play.
