Hope to see you all in Antwerp!
A one-day tournament, with preliminary rounds and finals. We will host a competition in the three weapons: foil, epee and sabre.
A competition in three weapons (foil, epee and sabre), possibly with categories according to skill or ages. This depends on the number of participants.
Categories will be determined on the day itself by the Directoire Technique. This applies only if there are enough people to make categories.
We strive to make pools of four players so that we can play a preliminary round with finals afterwards. However, this also depends on the number of participants and it will be decided by the tournament leader on the day itself.
- Everyone will have to bring his/her own weapons and equipment, we will not provide any!
