On Friday 17th March, we will run all fights following the rules that you’d expect at a competition. This means that we’ll fight with referees, time-limits and competition scoring. Before we start fencing, there will be a shorter-than-usual warm-up and a quick rules refresher so that everyone knows what they should be doing.

One-hit Épée Competition (14th March)

We will run our next regular monthly one-hit épée friendly competition on Tuesday 14th March during the regular club session. Everyone’s welcome, and you don’t need any experience to succeed.

The format is simple: fight to one point and winner stays on after each bout. The overall winner is the person with the most wins after we’ve been fencing for an hour.

One hit Epee competition (14th Feb)

Our monthly one-hit epee competition is coming up on Tuesday 14th February during the usual club hours (20:00-22:00). Please arrive for 8pm, and we’ll aim to be fencing by 8:15.

As usual the format will be a round-robin with the winner staying on piste after each bout. The overall winner is the fencer with the most victories from the 80 minutes fencing.

Everyone’s welcome (even if you’ve never held an epee before).
