By the end of the day you are fencing a final pool of fencers of a comparable standard so everyone is in a ‘final’.

 

Medals are awarded for the top three in each pool and there are equipment vouchers donated by Leon Paul - Scotland for the winners of the top three pools.

 

There are fun spot prizes and entry now includes a free prize draw for an electric weapon.
