The popular two-tier Sunday electric junior competitions will
continue next term (dates TBC). A running ranking list will be
posted on the club’s notice board after the first two rounds.
Your ranking after two rounds will determine your seeding in the
final round, which will now be ‘Direct Elimination’ – complete with
repechage (which means that you can’t be knocked out in the first
and second rounds – phew!). The top three ranked fencers at the
end of the term in each league will receive prizes. Long-reigning
top-tier maestra Dalma Rajan awaits your challenge...
This term, we will be holding club competitions for juniors and
seniors on Saturday 19th May. Both competitions will bring
together fencers from Mondays, Thursdays and Sundays, who will
fight for the right to proclaim themselves ‘club champions’.
The club events are great preparation for external competitions.
For younger fencers, there are several county, regional and
national-level competitions which take place within striking
distance of Tunbridge Wells. For example, there are under 16 and
18 county epee championships in Kent, age-group regional- and
national-level competitions such as the Elite Epee (two are held in
Surrey every season) and the British Youth Championship
qualifiers. Furthermore, there are British Cadet (14–17 years old)
and Junior (17–20 years old) events in the London area. Please ask
the club coaches which of these are an appropriate level for you.
