Tournament SCRABBLE players use some specialized equipment, including rotating boards with grids to hold the tiles in place, clocks to account for the 25 minutes allotted to each player in a game, and tournament-quality tiles, which have a smooth surface so that identifying letters and blanks by feel is less likely. You may wish to visit a SCRABBLE club and get an idea of the different kinds of equipment that are available before making a purchase. Following are links to some equipment suppliers, listed alphabetically by the first name/corporate name of the supplier.
