Join KSSA Scrabble

The Karnataka State Scrabble Association (KSSA) started back in 1998 as the Bangalore Scrabble Club (BSC). Spearheaded by Rex and Lennie D’Souza, the Bangalore Scrabble Club quickly became a catalyst for enthusiastic Scrabble players to excel at tournament play. BSC soon expanded its scope to include all of Karnataka and become the KSSA.

The KSSA is affiliated with the Scrabble Association of India (SAI) and the World English Scrabble Players Association (WESPA).

The KSSA typically organizes 1 Global and 1 National event each year. There are also informal 1-day tournaments happening every month in different parts of the city. The informal tournaments are a great place to nurture talent and to help them elevate their game

During the 2020 lock down the KSSA has switched to online tools to keep the community connected and facilitate tournament play. They have conducted One-Day Tournaments on ISC.RO, Leagues, Team Championships and Fun Quizzes. New members also receive a special orientation to Tournament Scrabble.
