New Zealand Nationals 2022 is an official World Cube Association (WCA) sanctioned speedcubing competition. Speedcubing is solving the 3x3x3 Cube or other similar puzzles as quickly as possible. The competition is open to all competitors regardless of experience and skill, but certain event-based time limits will be in place so as to make sure we can stay on schedule and get through the days on time. No prior experience in WCA competitions is necessary, but competitors should be familiar with the WCA regulations.

In addition, New Zealand Nationals 2022 will crown the National Champions in 16 WCA official events, over the course of 3 days.

If all the registration spots fill up, a waiting list will be created. If a confirmed competitor decides to cancel their registration, then the first competitor on the waiting list will take their place. Competitors on the waiting list will be arranged according to the order in which their registration payment is received. Registration fees will be held by Speedcubing NZ until the final list of competitors is confirmed (11:59pm on the 1st of December 2022). Those competitors on the waiting list who do not get a confirmed spot will be issued a full refund the week after the competition ends.

Please note that even if the competitor list is not showing as full at the time you register, there may already be other registrations waiting to be accepted, so you are not guaranteed a spot until your registration is accepted and appears on the competitor list.

Competitors may make changes to their registered events up to the 1st of December 2022 by submitting a request via the Speedcubing NZ Contact Us page.
