John Adams-sponsored event will see Rubik's fans gather for this weekend's event

This weekend, the world’s elite Speedcubers, will meet to the compete at the annual UK Cube Association’s Speedcubing UK Championship in Stevenage. 

John Adams is supporting the event with Rubik’s branded sponsorship and attendees are set to see many record-breaking attempts, with the main hopefuls in line to smash the sport’s previous results across many of the disciplines.

The John Adams’ Leisure sponsorship is part of an ongoing initiative to support the Speedcubing community. Lynette Norris, Marketing Manager at John Adams explained: “John Adams is thrilled to be back supporting the cubing community at the UK Championship this weekend.  Many of the champions now smashing records at these events began by being given a Rubik’s Cube when they were children.  Although it’s an evergreen puzzle, Rubik’s is enjoying a real resurgence, and we’d love to think the children receiving Rubik’s Cubes this Christmas will be some of the UK champs of the future.”

The UK Championship comprises 18 official events, with the culmination being the crowning of the 3x3 Rubik’s Cube champion on Sunday 29 October. The other competitions in the three-day event include the following speedsolving events: 2x2, 4x4, 5x5, 6x6 and 7x7 solves; additional 3x3 events using one-hand, fewest moves and with feet; 3x3, 4x4 and 5x5 blindfolded; Pyraminx, Square-1, Megaminx and Rubik’s Clock.
