EM Fencing


East Midlands British Youth Championship Qualifiers

Weather Warning!

If you’re thinking about travelling to the EM BYC Qualifier please be aware that there has been heavy snowfall in Nottingham and we want everyone to be safe.

As such we are reducing the number of categories that are fencing today. Any competitions that only had 4 entries will now have automatic qualifying for that category (we had planned on mixing the comps to get everyone plenty of fencing, but it’s safer in the snow to reduce the size of the comps). We are also pushing back the check-in times to 12pm to give the roads a chance to clear.

Therefore the only competitions that will be running today are:

Mens U12 Epee (12pm check in)
Mens U14 Epee (12pm check in)
Mens U16 Epee (12pm check in)
Mens U18 Epee (12pm check in)
Mens U12 Foil (12pm check in)
Mens U16 Sabre (12pm check in)
Womens U14 Epee (12pm check in)
Womens U14 Foil (12pm check in)

If you are not in the list above then you have automatically qualified. If you have automatically qualified then please contact Jenna Griffiths via emcadets@gmail.com to organise your entry to the BYC Finals?

Location : David Ross Sports Village (University of Nottingham)
