2017 National Marbles Championship in Wildwood

National Marbles Championship in Wildwood New Jersey
Last year we had the honor of attending the National Marbles Championship held in Wildwood New Jersey. We had a great time watching all of the marbles players play in the tournament and then finally a champion was crowned.

The 2017 National Marbles Championship was held once again in Wildwood New Jersey on June 19th through June 22nd, 2017. The tournament was held during those days with the winner's being crowned on June 22nd. It was really nice to see kids from various age groups competing against one another. You could tell that they had been playing marbles for many years and we're really excited to be there.

We had missed some of the exciting action due to it being extremely HOT outside that week, but we did catch several of the matches. If you ever plan on attending this yearly championship, I highly recommend that you check out the weather report & dress appropriately. It's held right on the beach and it was EXTREMELY hot on two of the days.

One it was all over, they called the kids and their parents up to the stage and announced the winners. They received prizes and trophies and those kids sure were proud of their accomplishments. This was the second time that we've watched one of these tournaments and it was pretty interesting to see.

If you're interesting in attending or perhaps you're interested in participating, you can find all of the information directly on the National Marbles Tournament website, including a page with online registration. Since I don't know a lot about the game, I found their tournament rules section to be really helpful in understand the game and the rules that apply.
