Our Regional Competitions

The region holds five main competitions that will now be run by an organising committee with representatives from all the counties.

Please remember that fencing is run almost completely by volunteers; many of us also have families and full time jobs and none of us are paid to run competitions. Some coaches are professional and paid to coach but rarely paid to attend a competition, many coaches are volunteers. All of our referees are volunteers.

If you would like to help at a competition please let us know – even just a half hour at either end of the day to help with set up or a spell making tea can make a big difference.  If you would like to do more like learning about competition assistance, refereeing, armoury or coaching, please ask about courses. Many hands make and light work!
