The 2017 UK Kubb Championship - Event Details
The New Inn in Farmborough will play hosts to the 2017 UK Kubb Championship on 8th July 2017.
Entry to the tournament will be free, as it has always been.
All players, whether seasoned professionals, or brand new, first timers, are welcome. Part of the charm of this event is that we get players of all ages and all abilities. We absolutely want to keep that going. There will be people at hand to help you with the rules, tips and hints, or just to shout encouragement at the right moment. Please get in touch via the contact page if you have any questions about next year's event, or if you have any concerns about your eligibility.
In the past, registration for the event has not been mandatory. But.....this year the format change restricts numbers to forty teams, so if you do not register it's possible that you might not get a chance to play. Why take the risk though? Registration is so easy, and if you DO choose to register, you will receive a small memento of your participation in way of thanks. Go here to register for the 2017 tournament. Why not do that now, while you are thinking about it? You can always cancel later if you need to. No obligation.
New Inn, Bath Road, Farmborough, Bath, Somerset, BA2 0EG
The tournament will start at 12 noon, although UK Kubb Championship helpers will be on site from about 10 am setting up the pistes. For novices, this is an ideal time to be taught how to play the game or to practise.
For 2017, the UK Kubb Championship will operate the Kubb Klassic format, details of which can be found here. It's basically a series of qualifying rounds followed by a knockout stage. Everyone will play at least 4 games. The games will start (and finish) at fixed times, so the day should be easy to predict in terms of timing.
UK Kubb Championship rules can be found here.
