EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) -- The largest Kubb tournament outside of Europe, and of the five largest in the world wrapped up its last day in Eau Claire Sunday.

The field was down to 16 teams competing for the U.S. National Kubb Championship. The 11th year the event was held in at the Eau Claire Soccer Park went without a hitch this year. Director of the tournament, Eric Anderson, says the competition keeps getting better and better year after year.

“I think every year it's just more and more steps,” Anderson said. “I think a lot of people say, 'Wow, there's been a big jump in quality of play, people getting better this year. I think a lot of it has to do with the Eau Claire Kubb League in town and different Kubb leagues around the country that are starting to play weekly now."

The winner of the tournament was Damage Incorporated, a team with two members from Eau Claire: Greg Jochimson and Scott Forster.
