Best Answer

It was invented when bored country folks started stacking hay bales in an enclosed area, barn, and then trying to do it as fast as possible and under pressure from others stacking. People love to stack things. We stack coins on our forearms and try to catch the coins with same arm. We have stores that celebrate our human need to stack things and rearrange things. The invention of the Red Solo Cup and usage increase in the 1970's the picnic tables became the new sport of cup stacking in a timed or patterned theme. Depending on the number of cups or the time duration the stacking sport became a formal competition. Stacking was a low level way of having a non-sport/sport moment without the worry of injury. The stacking is, however, a skill that needs practice and continued competition or the sport becomes just a kid with a bunch of red solo cups and too much time.

'Cup Stacking' has a long history that I will not get into. You may find some information by googleing 'history of cup stacking.' The founder of Speed Stacks Inc. is Bob Fox.
