The Lyttelton Cup will be a 3x3 head to head single elimination mini tournament for local Lyttelton cubers.

The top 8 to 16 cubers based on 3x3 average from round 1 will be selected to compete and placed into a seeded bracket.

The overall winner will compete for glory, bragging rights and maybe something a little more tangible

For more info head into the Speedcube.nz store just around the corner from the venue anytime leading up to the competition or contact the organisational team.

There is parking available on site, and more avaiable on nearby streets. However, on Saturday morning there is the Lyttelton Farmers Market which can cause issues with finding parking. So, we have gotten permission to use the Te Ana Marina carpark which is just a short walk away.
