SCOTTISH SCRABBLE ASSOCIATION

The Scottish Scrabble Association (SSA) was set up in 2001 to promote Scrabble in Scotland and to represent the interests of Scottish players.  We organise tournaments, administer the Scottish League team competition and the Scottish Individual League and Knockout (SILK) tournament.

The Association of British Scrabble Players (ABSP) was formed in 1987 as a not-for-profit association to promote interest in the playing of Scrabble. It co-ordinates tournaments and the provision of a rating system for players in the UK, as well as providing information and support to members, tournament organisers and tournament directors.

Its website also features tournament results, club information and advice for new players.  To see the current ratings of Scottish players, click below or visit the ratings page and filter by country.

Formed in 2003, WESPA (the World English Language Scrabble® Players Association) provides an official structure for the international Scrabble community. It supports associations with internationally recognised rules and a ratings system whilst promoting a global calendar of Scrabble events designed to cater for players of all ages and levels.
