Learn how and where to join a local Canadian Skat club.
Before I began researching and authoring a complete Skat section for the website a few weeks ago, I honestly had no idea just how popular this card game was in Canada. I’d played it before. I knew it was a German favorite. But I didn’t consider it to be a big deal. Now I know better.
As it turns out, there are thousands upon thousands of Canadian Skat players. Some of them became so enamored with the game, they went so far as to create Skat clubs all across the country. There are hundreds of members; most of which take part in regular Skat tournaments in Canada and beyond.
If you happen to enjoy the game that much, please continue reading. We’ll talk about all the different Canadian clubs for Skat players, where they’re located, when they meet, and how to become a member. If you think you need a little more work on your game first, check out our previous educational Skat articles:
At present, there are 13 ISPA certified Skat Clubs spanning the country from British Columbia to Quebec. I’ve provided all of their basic information below, including website links for those that have one.
I’ve placed them in order of west to east for no other reason than that’s the same direction you’d read a line of text in (left to right). If you’re interested in joining a club, please use the website link and/or contract information provided. Enjoy!
