As head organizer and near-constant judge, it was my pleasure to watch a lot of great fencing. We managed to run five open tournaments and three ladies tournaments, which is almost certainly a UK record. We had over 50 competitors, many entering multiple tournaments.

We had no serious injuries, and generally excellent sportsmanship and conduct across the event. Congratulations to all who fenced, and you can see who fenced best here.

We had no official videographer or photographer, but we hope people’s recordings will be shared on the Facebook event page in due time.
