Christchurch Speedcubers Championship 2020

Christchurch Speedcubers is New Zealand's longest running speedcubing club!

Live Results here!


Finally, and for the first time since 2018 we're holding another full day club championship! This is a whole day of solving cubes in the rough format of a World Cube Association (WCA) competition. Buy your ticket here!


Please let me be clear that this is an UNOFFICIAL competition, but a great way to get some comp practice in before the official ones start again, as well as just a great way to spend a day and meet some other speedcubers!

This event is open to anyone of any ability, but is primarily designed as a school holiday program for under 18s.

Please bring your own lunch. Snacks and drinks are included in the ticket price.

The following info gives some specifics on prizes, events and the schedule for the day.

Competitors at the 2018 championships


The events at this year's comp will be based on the mini Guildford challenge, which happens to be a popular, unofficial cubing challenge. We’re not actually doing the mini guildford challenge on the day to be clear, but it’s just a really good selection of all the main and side events, which seemed like a good place to start!

Please note - you don’t need to register for events! You can just do whichever ones you want, or as many as you can (More details in schedule). Cut offs for all events (i.e. max time for a single solve) are 10 minutes, because that’s how long a Stackmat timer goes for! 

So here are the events we’ll be doing;

  • 2x2x2 (2 rounds)
  • 3x3x3 (2 rounds)
  • 4x4x4 final
  • 5x5x5 final
  • OH final
  • Clock final
  • Megaminx final
  • Pyraminx final
  • Skewb final
  • Square-1 final

“But wait, how are you going to fit all of those events into one day?” Well here’s the thing, we actually probably won’t!  BUT… We’re going to try something I’m calling “open rounds”, in amongst some regular, scheduled rounds. This will let attendees do the events they want as efficiently as possible without a hectic schedule for the whole day. After all, this is just for fun!  What does that actually look like though? Let’s take a closer look...

  • 0900 set up, check in, chill out
  • 1000 3x3 round 1 
  • 1100 2x2 round 1
  • 1200 lunch
  • 1230-1515 open rounds (2.45 hours)
  • 1530 2x2 finals (top 8)
  • 1600 3x3 Finals (top 8)

So you have 2.45 hours to do as many events as you want or as many as you can in that time.

I look forward to seeing you there! Get your ticket here!
