Welcome to ISPA North America!
ISPA stands for International Skat Players Association, and this site represents the section for Skat Canada and the Skat USA. Check out the many sources of information about this exciting game by exploring the links on the right as well as in the sub pages of this website. If you like challenging games and you are competitive in nature, Skat may just be the game for you. Be warned though: Once you start playing, you may not be able to stop. Our clubs are listed in the ABOUT section and under SKAT USA.
Please take note that due to the somewhat still fluid development around Covid-19 situation with currently rising case counts, some provincial governments have introduced different regulations. For instance, you need to be aware that for the upcoming tournament in Kelowna, as a participant, you require to demonstrate proof of double vaccination. Please also see the updated Kelowna invite under Tournaments 2021.
NEW: This is now also the case for the tournaments in Alberta, after Premier Kenney invoked a state of emergency this week. Please see the updated invite from Red Deer also.
Secondly, we are happy to announce that there will be a North American Championship, Calgary was chosen to host this prestigious event. All the more reason to travel to Alberta, if you needed another argument to come to the Western Prairies.
We are looking forward to reconnecting with many friends after a what has been way too long of a distancing break.
Gut Blatt to all!
