Entry Fee: £33 per fencer per weapon entered. Please note -refunds will only be issued after 2nd February in very exceptional circumstances. There will be no refunds after the closing date  Costs this year are higher because BF have increased the levy on each entry plus requiring Regions to provide 3 days refereeing.  £10 from each entry goes direct to BF.  London Region Fencing has absorbed the increase in refereeing cost but unfortunately have to pass the entry levy increase to competitiors
