Cambridgeshire County Youth & Veteran's Epee Championships

SAVE THE DATE - Saturday 16th February 2019


With the expansion of youth Epee in the County over the last couple of years it was decided that a Cambridgeshire County Youth Epee Championships was needed for the 2012-2013 season, following that event's success it was decided to continue the event in 2014 and in the future. This will be run in the Peterborough area where there are the largest group of epeeists based and is run with the knowledge & support of the Cambridgeshire Fencing Association.

With a venue set up, it was also seen as a great opportunity to run a Veteran's event on the same day and this is being launched for 2016 to encourage our 'experienced in life fencers' to compete locally in a fun athmosphere.

Closing Date for Entries --

Entries after this date will only be accepted at the organisers discretion with additional late entry fee - see entry form. If we have a large entry, late entries may not be accepted at all or only accepted to create a suitable number for each catagory, so get your entreis in as soon as possible. Entry cap details may be added to the entry lists once closing date arrives if needed.

County Eligibility

This is a 'closed' county championship so all fencers taking part must either, have their main home in Cambridgeshire, go to school in the county or fence at a County based club (or official feeder school to that club).


Information will be placed on this site, including entry lists (updated as they are received so please check they have been received), check-in times and general information on events. Please check the website just after entries close for confirmed check-in times etc.

Weapon Sizes

The Under 10 age-group will be using size 0, Under 12 and Under 14 events will be using size 2 Epees (guard to tip 82.5cm max) with the Under 16 & U18 event using size 5 weapons. Depending on numbers in the Under 8 event, Size 0 Epoils may be used (combination of foil & Epee Parts to make even lighter weapon), however if so the event organiser will supply these for the event.

Any size epees can be used for the Veteran's event, however the norm is size 5s.

Fight times / durations

Poule fights in the Under 10, Under 10 and Under 12 age-groups will be to 5 hits, however with a 2 minute fight duration. Direct Elimination fights will be to 10 hits with 3 periods of 2 minute duration (with a minute gap between periods).

Poule Fights for Under 14, Under 16 and Under 18 age-groups will be 5 hits, with a 3 minute fight duration. Direct Elimination fights will be to 15 hits with 3 periods of 3 minute duration (with a 60 second gap between periods).

Veterans will be 5 hits, with a 3 minute fight duration. Direct Elimination fights will be to 10 hits with 3 periods of 2 minute duration (with a 60 second gap between periods).

Equipment regulations

All kit must conform to the British Fencing regulations (see www.britishfencing.com). In the under 16 and Under 18 events size 5 weapons will be used so 350N breeches and 800 Newton plastrons are required. Weapons may be tested at the event from the first round for weight and travel; however due to the use of communal weapons by a large number of the entries, cards will not be issued for failed weapons (in this regard). All fencers should ensure that the equipment they are wearing fits correctly, with suitable overlap, especially between jackets & breeches. Referees will be specifically requested to ensure this is the case. Fencers in Girls events are required to wear chest-protectors.


We are hoping to organize medals for 1st, 2nd and =3rd place for each category, however in events with very low entry numbers these may not be produced in advance and may need to be sent on to winners after the event so we do not have wasted medals.


This event will be run on a not-for-profit basis with entry fees paying for medals and the general expence of the event. If at the end of the event any funds are left over, they will be held as a fund for the event next year.


We are planning to have teas, coffees and squash at the event, however as noone hould be at the event for more than 2 or 3 hours there is not planned to be a full catering facility. Note that food cannot be consumed in the hall and no open cups can be used in the hall (only bottles/cups with lids).

Data retention, Publishing of Entry lists and Results online

By entering these competitions you agree for entry lists and results to be published on our facebook page, website and linked results page (British Fencing, Epee.me etc) and that data (including contact data) can be held by the event organisers to assist in future competition arrangements (including contacting you to inform you of future events).


The organizers will be arranging for some photography/videoing to occur during the event within the fencing hall. These photos may be used for publicity and may be posted on the internet. If you do have any issues with your child being included in these photos please contact the organizer. Individuals may video/take photographs during the event (no flashes please), however you must register with the organizers on the day.
