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.
Registration is now closed for 2017 as we have run out of space.
New Inn, Bath Road, Farmborough, Bath, Somerset, BA2 0EG
The tournament will start at 11 am, although UK Kubb Championship helpers will be on site from about 8:30 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.
