    Default The Epee Club Cup - 2019

    The Epee Club Committee has just released the following information regarding The Epee Club Cup which is being held at LPFC on 9 June 2019:


    "The Epée Club Cup – which is being held at the Leon Paul Fencing Centre on Saturday 9th June – has just announced that there will be cash prizes totalling £1000.00 for the winners in each of the following categories:

    Overall Winner (£400), Runner-up (£200), Third Place (£100), Top Female (£100), Top Under-20 (£100) and Top Veteran (£100).There will also be non monetary prizes for the eight finalists with the winner holding The Epée Club Cup for the year.

    The competition, which has been running now for over 30 years, is unique in the British Fencing calendar in many ways ie:

    Firstly, it is by invitation only, with invitations being sent by the Epée Club to a mix of our top ranking Seniors and Juniors, British Veterans, Modern Pentathletes with the odd “wild card” thrown in.

    Secondly, it is a mixed competition for 36 fencers with the final DE of 8 being taken from the winners of two poules of 18. So, everyone invited gets at least seventeen fights as part of an enjoyable day’s competition. A buffet is also provided during the Final.

    Thirdly, it has no relevance in the Ranking System and merely aims to provide a good day’s high calibre fencing against a variety of experienced epeeists.

    The Epée Club Charitable Fund - www.epeeclubcharity.org.uk – is partly funding this competition to further its aim of supporting British epée. Leon Paul is also making a significant contribution by providing access to this world class fencing facility.

    Spectators are more than welcome on the day which commences at 1000 hrs."


    This is further good news from The Epee Club which has already, through the auspices of The Epee Club Charitable Fund, been supporting our Senior, Junior and Cadet GBR Teams over the past two years, both by funding Team entries and paying for coaches and some of their expenses. The Epee Club Charitable Fund receives regular donations from those interested in ensuring that epee is able to compete at World Championship levels and all levels. If you are interested in becoming a donor, then please look at the website. Gift Aid is available.

    Whoops - just noted that I had put Saturday 9 June for the date of the Cup. It should read SUNDAY 9 June... it is my birthday as well if anyone is interested!
