This is the 4th annual Eastside Hill Kubb Derby. Our neighborhood Kubb derby is played in the spirit/tradition of soccer derbies in England. In England, many soccer teams will originate from a neighborhood and play other clubs or teams throughout the area. However, once a year, the neighborhoods all come home and will play in a Derby. In this Derby, neighborhood teams play each other, and the winners receive the honor of flying a special flag for the following year.

The Eastside Hill Neighborhood has a great Kubb tradition which we’d like to continue to grow throughout the entire neighborhood. The U.S. National Kubb Championship was initially played in our very own Boyd Park. Proportionally, we generate the greatest number of Kubb players and teams playing the Championship. Also, half of the American team that took 2nd place at the 2014 World Kubb Tournament in Gotland, Sweden was from the Eastside Hill.
