Competition Results

If you have details of competition results which are not currently listed on this page, please pass them to Pete at one of the club nights and he will ensure that they are posted here. Thank you.


Current Season

GB Cup Qualifier 2018

The regional qualifier for the new GB Cup competition was held in Newbury on the 11th of February. Low entry numbers resulted in the Women's Foil being cancelled leaving us with just one competitor.

Men's Foil
Pete Houston 8th place

This is a promising competition for fencers just below elite level and with better promotion it might be expected to flourish in future seasons.


2016-2017 Season

Southern Region Senior Epee and Sabre 2017

The regional epee and sabre competitions were held on the same day. Our sole representative competed in both competitions and was awarded Master at Arms for the second successive season.

2015-2016 Season

Southern Region Foil 2016

The regional senior foil competition at Downlands was not particularly well atended this year. All fencers entered a single poule which included those who had entered the novices competition. Everyone progressed to a DE which was fought to 10 for reasons of limited time at the venue. The result for our solitary representative was:

Pete Houston L8

Together with his results in the earlier epee and sabre competitions this makes Pete the Southern Region Master at Arms for the 2015-16 season.

The SR site has the podium results.
