National Kubb Championship takes to the lawns this weekend


EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) -- The nation's biggest Kubb tournament takes to the lawns this weekend in Eau Claire, the Kubb capital of North America.

300 players from seven states are competing in the National Kubb Championship Tournament at the Eau Claire soccer fields. At least 200 people came out just to watch.

Director of the tournament Eric Anderson said its a game anyone can enjoy.

"I think it's special because it's here in Eau Claire and it's something we can be really proud of and it's the largest tournament outside of Europe. Kubb's a game for everyone. That's what we tell people. It doesn't matter how old you are, you don't have to be a tri-athlete. Whatever it is, it's a game for everybody," said Anderson.

The final eight teams will take each other on Sunday at 9 a.m. Visit Eau Claire estimates the tournament adds about $156,000 to the local economy.
