As you may have heard British Fencing has recently announced a great new all weapon national championship for intermediate fencers, the GB Cup. It will be run on similar lines to the British Youth Championships. Through qualifying competitions each Region will select 2 fencers from each weapon to represent them at the national final in Nottingham on 23rd June.
We think this is a very positive initiative by British Fencing to recognise the importance of fencing at intermediate level and we heartily endorse it. So, whilst some regions are using existing competitions for their selection process, we’re taking the opportunity to launch a new ‘London Region Intermediate Championship’ which will also act as our selection event.
It will take place on 29th April 2018 at St Benedict’s School, Ealing. Full details here
The London Region Youth Championships (LRYC) 2018 will take place on 3rd and 11th March 2018. These competitions are the London Region qualifying rounds for the British Youth Championships. All Epee age groups and under 12 and under14 foil will take place on 3rd March at Sportsdock. All Sabre and under 16 and under 18 foil will take place at St Benedects School, Ealing on 11th March. Full details are here. Entry is via Sport80
