Players
Non-members can take part in fixtures on an occasional basis; they are especially welcome when a member has to cancel at short notice. Non-members are given League points (see results sheet) though such points do not figure in the League table.

Missing Players
When less than four members turn up for a fixture, the rules provide a formula for three-player and two-player fixtures.
(See Fixture Rules)
For two-player fixtures, BOTH players must be members.

The League Table
Once matches are completed, the results are sent to the Results co-ordinator who enters the details into our myscrabbleapp.com program. Whenever the table is produced it shows the average points scored by each player first. These average points are the player's points added up and divided by the number of fixtures they have played. In the event of the average points being the same the program lists the players in order of their average game score starting with the higher.
