NASPA Club #667: Northampton Scrabble Club
Hello! If you have reached this page, you are probably a fan of Scrabble. We have a Scrabble Club in Northampton, MA and you are welcome to be part of it, no matter how good, great, or poor you are at the game. The group members will be very happy to help you improve in a fun and social environment.
The Northampton Scrabble Club meets in the Community Room just inside the entrance of Lilly Library, 19 Meadow St, Florence, MA 01062, every Monday evening, even when the library is closed! The only holidays we will not meet on are Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and New Year's Eve. We start our first game at 4:30, but folks walk in throughout the evening. Usually we play later than 9:00, sometimes by a couple hours. You do NOT have to come for the first game--you can come in at any time, and you are free to leave after any game.
We presented our very first Charity Scrabble Event to benefit the Northampton Survival Center, Climate Action Now (WMass), and Cancer Connection! It was on Saturday, February 10th, 2018. Our 2nd Annual Charity Scrabble Event was March 2nd, 2019 from 11:00am to 3:00pm at the American Legion Hall, 63 Riverside Dr, Florence, MA. Please let us know if you want info on the next event when it becomes available!
This is the only club in Western Massachusetts officially affiliated with the North American Scrabble Players Association (NASPA) that meets weekly. There are a few other, smaller, groups in the area that I know of. Ask me if you want to know more.
We aren't far from Route 91, and we've had players join us from Easthampton, Florence, Amherst, Springfield, Ludlow, Chicopee, Greenfield, Westfield, UMass, New Hampshire, New York, Connecticut and Vermont! Come check us out.
If you want more information, want to share Scrabble information, or just want to play some Scrabble, show up to Club or you can email the club's director, Brett Constantine, at NohoScrabble at gmail dot com. If you prefer to call or text, you can reach him at 413-387-9678.
