Cornwall County Fencing Championships 2017

About

The Senior Cornwall County Fencing Championships will be held in the Cornwall Fencing Centre on Saturday 25th November.

The competition is being run on behalf of the newly reformed Cornwall Fencing Union, and we hope as may TFC fencers as possible will support it.

This is an open competition so is open to anyone aged 13 or older on 1st January 2017. Entry is open to all, but County Titles and Master at Arms are restricted to members of Cornish clubs affiliated to the Cornwall Fencing Union. Master at Arms will be awarded to the top male and top female fencer who competes across all three weapons.

All fencers must be BFA members ~ The format will depend on numbers of entries and is at the discretion of the organisers ~ Medals will be awarded for the top 4 fencers in each category.

The competition will count towards the South West Regional Rankings.

Three Weapon Event

We would encourage all of our fencers to fence in this competition. Master at Arms will be awarded to the top male and top female fencer who competes across all three weapons, so we encourage you to try all three weapons! We can lend kit to anyone who is fencing a weapon they don’t usually do.
