Competition Details


Team Matches followed by Four rounds of Poules

The Fun Forty Eight is a relaxed day full of fencing. If time and entries permit, the day starts with a friendly team match then the main tournament starts with four rounds of mixed poules and no elimination of fencers. 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.

Each Forty-Eighter cost £18 per person to enter. 

Late Entries: One week before each 48er, the price will increase to £22.


Check-in is at 9.45am

Fencing will start at 10:00am

The day finishes by 3:30 pm with many fencers going on to have a pub meal at the Old Post Office on the high street. 

Directions to the Old Post Office can be found HERE.
