Sussex County Youth Championships 2023

A competition I’ve not been involved with before, so it’ll be interesting to see how it goes and if we can build this up to be comparable to the Surrey Youth Championships. Two weapons only, foil and epee, as there are no acutal sabre clubs in Sussex. 17th December at Longhill Sports Centre just on the outskirts of Brighton. Entry is through Sport80 –

South East Youth Fencing Championships 2024

I don’t remember what year exactly it was that I became involved in running this event – possibly 2020 or maybe earlier. In that time though it had changed significantly (for the better). The venue is now settled at the excellent Triangle Leisure Centre in Burgess Hill after we lost Whitgift School due to a change in policy relating to external organisations hiring their facilities. There is an amazing team of people involved in putting together this competition, and it has now become one of the largest youth fencing competitions in the country. Last year we over 300 entries across all the weapons, up from just over 200 in 2020.

Entry for the 2024 event is now open on Sport80 –
