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 20-25 players on any given Monday.

Venue: The club meets every Monday at 19:00 at the International Chess Centre on Tagore 26. Play begins at 19:15 sharp (it’s essential to arrive before then to be paired for the first game). 

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.

Format: Ten of our top players compete in the Aardvark Division, twelve in the intermediate Madoqua division, and the rest in Zyzzyva. New players automatically join Zyzzyva or Madoqua after 12 games, depending on their average. 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.
