This is an exciting time for kubb in the U.S. We feel fortunate to be part of kubb at this time and to have so much activity happening in western Wisconsin and beyond. Over the past years, skill level in the Midwest is increasing fast, and we love it. We play in tournaments to meet new people, enjoy a day doing something we really enjoy doing, and have opportunities to battle against elite teams inside the the 8 meter by 5 meter pitch. Even though our practice time together has been eliminated, on the pitch, we are ONE…Sweden’s Sons. There is never any quit…never.
We have had others that have played with us and others that we have played with. We will continue to do that. We like two-person teams, but love three and six-person teams.
