These pictures were taken during filming at Guildford Fencing Club for an episode of the BBC's "CBBC" programme in 2006.



These pictures were taken at the Bowden competition in July 2007. The Bowden Cup is a 3-weapon mixed team competition run by Guildford Fencing Club each year.

Chris scores a hit against Andrew Ashmore of Saxon Fyrd's in the individual round. Chris won all his ten matches to win the Individual Sabre. Kim Ming Looi also of Saxon Fyr'ds watches on. Chris won this fight by 5 hits to 1.

Jim Hamilton of Wimbledon Wombles watches on as Christopher Weeks of Mixed Vintage(on the left) fights Tom of Wimbleon Wombles. Tom went on to be second in the Individual Foil and beat Chris by 5 hits to 3 in this fight.
Tim Schofield of RTM scores a hit against Gareth of the Sleepy Heads. Gareth beat Tim 5 hits to 2. Gareth went on to win the Individual Epée, losing only to Grant Smith of Saxon Huscarls by 3 hits to 5.
In the team event, the two semi-finals were fought simultaneously with Abingdon facing the Sleepy Heads and Wimbledon Wombles facing the Saxon Huscarls. Martin Carter of Abindon fences Gaurav of the Sleepy heads on the left whilst Grant Smith of Saxon Huscarls faces Simon White (I believe Simon is on the left here). The Sleepy Heads beat Abingdon by 30 hits to 14; whilst the Wombles beat the Huscarls by 30 hits to 19.
Paul Lowen of the Saxon Huscarls prepares to fight the second fight in the fight off for third place against Martin Carter of Abingdon. The Saxon Huscals won by 30 hits to 27 in a close match. Guildford were fortunate to be offered the use of an electric piste by PBT UK. The piste, as you can see here, was used for some of the finals.
Gareth of the Sleepy Heads prepares to start the first fight of the final against Simon White. Gareth soon established an early lead which Chris and Gaurav then capitalised on.

Tonya Cheatham receives her goblet from Julie Schofield. Tonya came 3rd in the individual sabre.

Gaurav receives his prize for coming third in the individual foil.
Nick Battam was second the individual sabre
Gareth wins the individual Epée
Ian Briggs of PBT UK presents the Guildford Chalice to Wimbledon Wombledon who came fifth overall but were the highest placed mixed team. This means that Wimbledon retains the trophy for the third year in succession.
