(From http://www.usakubb.org) The U.S. National Kubb Championship started in 2007 with 15 teams and 35 players. Each of the past three years, there were 128 teams with over 450 players. The U.S National Kubb Championship is the largest kubb tournament outside of Europe. It is one of three, two-day tournaments in the world, and it is the second largest tournament in the world with painted kubbs and kings. Through our outreach program, the organization takes part in numerous activities, events, and programs throughout the year to promote kubb in the Eau Claire area and around the country.

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 their 80s. Kid Kubb is held the day before the U.S. National Kubb Championship and is open to participants 12 years old and younger. The Pre-Championship is held two weeks before the U.S. National Kubb Championship.

On December 13, 2011, through the City Council, Eau Claire, WI officially became the Kubb Capital of North America. The U.S. Championship is one of many kubb tournaments, leagues, and events in the Eau Claire area.
