    Open to all BF members over 13 but there are also additional medals (and trophy) for the highest Surrey Fencers.  The definition of a Surrey Fencer is given on (fences regularly in a Surrey Club or lives in Surrey. 'Surrey' is defined by it's old boundaries)
    Aged 13 or over on the day of the competition. Live, go to school/university or a member of a Surrey club. The Surrey boundary includes anywhere which was in Surrey (email the organiser for a map)

    For each category there will, depending on numbers, be one or two rounds of pools for all fencers  followed by a Direct Elimination.

    Normally all fencers can expect to be included in the DE, but if numbers are large there may have to be a cut, but only if two rounds of pools are fought. The format will be described on the day.

    If ladies or men's numbers are low, then ladies and men may be given the option of fencing the pools (but not the DE) together.

    British Fencing clothing and equipment rules will be enforced.

    The organisers ask you to please check on for further announcements.

    London run event aimed at beginners and inexperienced fencers over 16 years old.



    16 years of age or over at 1st January 2023.

    Novices: Fencers who started fencing since January 2021. Intermediates: For the weapon entered, have never been in the top 50 of the men’s senior rankings, (foil and epee) or the top 25 of the mens sabre or women’s senior rankings and have not reached the last 4 of any Open Competition with more than 12 entries in that weapon.


    Novice fencers can choose between Novice or Intermediate events, but not both.

    All competitions will start with poules, and all fencers will be promoted to the Direct Elimination stages of their event.

    The aim of the event is to maximise the amount of fencing so fencers of different experience and gender will be mixed in the poules. DE may be split male/female and Novice/Intermediate depending on the number of entries in each category.
