19 years of age or over at 1st January 2022. Novices: Fencers who started fencing since September 2018. Intermediates: For the weapon entered, have never been in the top 50 of the men’s senior rankings, (foil and epee) or the top 25 of the mens sabre or women’s senior rankings and have not reached the last 4 of any Open Competition with more than 12 entries in that weapon.
FORMULA 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.
Covid precautions will apply
Fencers should wear face covering within the venue at all times when not fencing (unless exempt)
Only LRF Officials and those fencers entered in the competition will be allowed into the venue. Others, including coaches, supporters, spectators etc. will not be given access
