Club Competition Results 2002/2003

Club Sabre

Ten fencers entered this year's Club Sabre competition (unfortunately with rather fewer sets of equipment). The competition was fenced as two pools of five, followed by a final pool of six, all finished in two hours. Many places were closely fought, with Vilya and Julian being equally placed on wins and indicators in the first round - promotion was on hits scored. We are very grateful to Derek Groves for visiting us and refereeing so many fights!

Results of the final pool:

Club Foil

It was rewarding to see a large entry of 17 fencers for this competition, fought in two rounds with the final being a large pool of 8 fencers split across two pistes. Despite the large entry of fencers who have recently started, the last bout, which decided the winners, was with the experienced fencers Simon and Tim (though Tim Harris did beat Tim Schofield in the first round).

Results of the final pool:

Junior Sabre

The Junior Sabre competition, held for the first time in March 2003, was open to fencers under 13 years old. As is common with sabre competitions, it was over rather quickly! Thanks to Chris and Aaron for refereeing.

Handicap Competition

The club handicap competition had the largest entry on record, 28 fencers. In consequence it was fenced over three weeks, with the finals on 6th December. Here are the results of the final pool, with the scores after application of handicap.

Congratulations to Simon, who had only just finished the 6-week course but nevertheless won three fights in this final pool. A special mention should go to Simon Pearson, who dropped only four hits in the entire competition but was handicapped so heavily he didn't even make it out of the first round!

Club Epee

The club epee competition had an entry of 11. It was fenced over two weeks with two pools and a final pool of 6. A high level of skill led to an exciting final.

Match v. Royal Navy

Following on from last year's successful epee competition, a team from the Royal Navy visited the Club on the 13th June. Guildford fielded two teams and the Royal Navy fenced each in turn. Guildford A started well building quickly to a 15-9 lead but the Royal Navy fought back and eventually took the match by 45 points to 42. Guildford B put up a gallant fight losing 23 points to 45

Teams were: Royal Navy: Dicky Barton, Andrew Thomas and Rubin Nash. Guildford A: Steve Pope, Aaron Lewis and Christopher Schofield. Guildford B: Derek Hydes, Simon Pearson and Alex Cross
