    Default Manchester Sword 2018

    Following on from the popularity of the Stirling Sword competitions is Manchester Sword! Same senior mixed-gender team and individual format, same low price competition, the only difference is that it is in Manchester.

    Whether you are looking for some post-exams summer fencing, some Winton Cup preparation or spot of team practice before the Commonwealths, this could be the competition for you!

    Saturday 30th June
    •Team Foil: 09:15 - 09:30

    Less than two weeks to go until the entries close!

    Saturday
    Team Foil - 4/16
    Team Epee - 6/16
    Team Sabre - 3/16

    Sunday
    Indy Foil - 6/48
    Indy Epee - 6/48
    Indy Sabre - 6/48

    I'm awaiting confirmation for several individual entries across the 3 weapons so expect those numbers to jump up very soon.

    Also still got some people looking to form scratch teams for all 3 weapons. E-mail me at manchestersword@gmail.com if you are interested in joining one.

    Full entry lists, and online entry, can be found at http://allentries.co.uk//

    There is also a Facebook event with additional information and updates are made.

    One week to go until the entries close!

    Saturday
    Team Foil - 5/16
    Team Epee - 6/16
    Team Sabre - 3/16

    Sunday
    Indy Foil - 11/48
    Indy Epee - 7/48
    Indy Sabre - 8/48

    There are at least 4 teams and 30+ individuals* that are hanging back from entering for various reasons, most of which are waiting to see if entries increase first.

    If all those people entered today, team entries would go up by 30% and indy entries by 150%. You'd have the competition numbers you want to see, everyone would get more fencing for their money and it would make it financially viable for me to run this event next year. Everybody wins!

    Full entry lists, and online entry, can be found at http://allentries.co.uk//

    Any queries, problems with entering or interest in joining a scratch team e-mail me at manchestersword@gmail.com.

    *And that's just the ones that I am aware for, the real figure is probably higher. Also not counting scratch teams.
