2017 Auckland Regional Sport Stacking Tournament - 12 August

Stackers from around the country return to Auckland for the penultimate sanctioned tournament for 2017.  Now into the second half of the Stacking year, stackers will be on form and itching to set new records.

Competition is open to everyone, with our Novice section enabling those new to the sport to compete alongside seasoned stackers, facing the same thrill of a competition whilst striving for goals and records amongst those of equal experience.

This is a fun filled family event. Auckland is home to some of New Zealand’s fastest stackers, and you can be sure that cups and records will fly as our experienced stackers vie to beat their own times, as well as those of their closest competitors. Novice stackers practice and compete amongst the experienced stackers, and will find that although competition is fierce, camaraderie is high. Tips and tricks will be passed on freely, and you will be encouraged and supported every step of the way. Those novice records may be yours by the end of the day!   

Individual and team events for all ages, NZ, NZ Divisional, Asian and World Records up for grabs, ensuring a fun filled day for the whole family.
