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.
The organisers reserve the right to change the formula to assist the smooth running of the competition and to improve the experience for the participants. If there are fencers who wish to enter more than one weapon we will make arrangements, if practicable, on the day.
