Welcome to the Kyykkä Finnish Student Championships, organized for the first time! The competition will take the participants to the origins of the sport to Lappeenranta, Karelia! The games will be played on a surface that is perhaps a little more alien to many academic Kyykäers, namely sand. 

There will be only one mixed team series, which can be entered by teams of four with any composition. The official rulebook of the Finnish Kyykkä Federation, the umbrella organisation of the sport, will apply. Below you will find a concise list of competition details.
