Kubb is an old Nordic game that is said to have its origins with the Vikings. Starting roughly 25 years ago, the game exploded throughout the Nordic countries. Over the past 10 years, kubb has had significant growth in mainland Europe and the U.S. The Midwest is currently home to the majority of recreational and competitive kubb activity in the U.S.
The U.S National Kubb Championship is the largest kubb tournament outside of Europe and one of the largest in the world. It is one of three two-day tournaments in the world, along with the World Championship in Sweden and the Swedish Championship. It is also the second largest tournament in the world with painted kubbs and kings. The U.S. Championship started in 2007 with 15 teams and 35 players, and it has outgrown three different City of Eau Claire parks. The U.S. Championship is also a fundraiser for Girls On The Run of Eau Claire County and We Help War Victims.
Kubb is a game for all, and the U.S. Championship is a tournament for all. From first-time players to past champions, all skill levels and experience are welcome. Participants have ranged between six years old and in the 80s. The top eight teams return Sunday morning for the quarterfinals, semifinals, bronze medal match, and Final.
On December 13, 2011, through the City Council, Eau Claire officially became the Kubb Capital of North America. Throughout the year, the U.S. Championship takes part in numerous local activities and events to promote kubb. You can find a list of kubb activities in the Eau Claire area at Wisconsin Kubb.
"Kubb unites people and creates peace on Earth."
