Eight additional fencers who attend OPS Epee club qualified for the British Youth Championship Finals to add to those who had byes from last year’s BYC championships (who gained 8th place or better then). Golds went to Rachael Lever (U12 Girls Foil, she already had a bye for Epee), Eleanor Taylor (U12 Girls), Tabby Pattison (U14 Girls) and Theo Edwards (U18 Boys). Silvers were won by Finlay Noble (U12 Boys), Taylor Sheeham (U12 Girls), Niamh Noble (U14 Girls) and Josh Myers (U18 boys).

Also great performances were displayed by our other club fencers who lost in the quarter finals, so missing out on the top 4 spot needed for qualification, bad luck to Thomas Lemmon (U12 boys), Oliver Lemmon (U14 Boys), as well as Adian & Illias Panchal, both who have only fenced for a matter of months, who made life very difficult for the other Under 16 boys entries who had years more experience.
