Best Cribbage Clubs in Canada

The top Cribbage Clubs in the nation are with the long-time backing of the American Cribbage Congress (ACC est.1980). The organization has been around for years, and is a well-oiled machine in terms of scheduling and structuring. There are currently three active ACC clubs in Canada. Two are located in Alberta, and one in British Columbia.

Finding a Cribbage Club Near You

One of the fastest way to find a crib club near you is to contact other clubs in more distant areas; especially those in the ACC. Being competitive leagues, they tend to have the most up to date information on other cribbage groups. The ACC headquarters are located in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, and be contacted at 1-888-PEGGING, or by emailing membership@cribbage.org.

Another option is to contact local organizations that might host a crib club, such as the Royal Canadian Legion. Reach out to the chamber of commerce and senior community centres in your area. Look for community message boards or social media pages. If there’s a Cribbage gaming club in your area, someone will be able to point you in the right direction. If not, you just might find enough support to help get one up and running.
