Club One Hit Epee

Held for the first time since 2000, this attracted a large number of entrants and numbers were limited to 18, giving 3 poules of 6. Everyone fenced each other and the competition finished just in time. Unsurprisingly, the 'real' epeeists came out on top but the results show how varied the field was. Congratulations to Simon Pearson who 'conincidently' was also the winner in 2000.
