There are a number of on-going  building projects which are affecting parking within both car parks – therefore for the event you would need to park along the long kilometre drive which leads up to the College

Southern Region – Fencers may only enter this Regional event if they have specified Southern Region on their British Fencing Membership. Fencers may only fence in a qualifying event in one region in any season.

UK residents – As these are the qualifying events for the British Youth Championships (BYCs), fencers must be UK residents.

BYC qualification and entry fee – At least the top four fencers in each competition will qualify for the BYCs. More will qualify in any competitions with 17 or more fencers. All qualifying fencers will be asked to pay the £21 BYC entry fee at the competition on 25 January

Byes – For 2016, all fencers with a bye for the BYC and who want to take advantage of the bye will need to enter this competition.
They do not need to fence but they are required to pay the competition entry fee – please notify if you enter but are not fencing.
Fencers with byes will be an additional qualifier on top of the regions quota no matter where they finish. All fencers with bye’s will be contacted by British Fencing explaining this too.

Cancellation/Refund Policy – In general no refunds or cancellations will be given once a fencer has paid the entry fee. Refunds are only given in unusual/extreme circumstances and at the discretion of the Region chair. Any fencer who receives a refund is deemed not to have entered the qualifier and cannot be entered in the BYC even if they have a bye.

Please contact the southern region competitions committee if you have any queries about this Southern Region competition. Please email
