Club Sabre Competition
On Friday 26 November 2021

over are welcome to join in and the club will provide any kit you might
need, subject to availability, some sharing might be required. Casual
visitors may also compete if they have fenced at the club before (they
will also have to pay the usual day fee as well as the competition entry
- Check in at 8.00pm
- There is a £5 entry fee for adult members and £3 for full time
education (in addition to the regular casual fee if you are a
- The format will be one round of pools (everyone fences everyone in
their group to 5 hits). This will then seed a direct elimination bracket
(DE) which goes to 15 hits. Everyone will get at least 1 DE fight. The
better you do, the more fencing you will manage!
- There will be medals and a trophy for the winners.
- For those of you on Facebook, please RSVP to the event as this is a useful way for us to gauge some numbers.
The competition is a good way to fence people you might not normally and
also let people who might not often fence a weapon a good excuse to
have a bit of fun with it.
The hope is to finish the whole event in one evening, but it may have to
continue the following week (3/12/21). This means that people taking
part in the competition will not be doing the warm-up or footwork to
allow us to get as much fencing done as possible.
Check in time will be at 8:00 pm (the usual start time for the session).
The competition will begin at 8:10 pm. If you arrive after this, we may
have started without you.
The rest of the hall will be available for fencers who wish to train as usual without entering the competition.
