Equipment Specifications 

Foil Bibs 

In previous years conducting foil bibs were not required by Challenge Wratislavia: therefore for consistency they are not essential for this event. If you have a conducting bib we can provide tape to insulate this from the lame. 

Weapon Size 

Depending on the number of entries the organisers may mix age groups for poules. This means that U13 fencers should be prepared to fence others who are using size 5 weapons. In that situation fencers can choose to fence with either size 5 or size 3 (or smaller). Again, this is the same rule as Challenge Wratislavia. We would recommend fencers fence with the size of weapon which is appropriate for their age group and ability. 

Sabre Gloves 

Those fencing with size 5 blades in sabre should be aware that British Fencing safety rules require them to wear 800n gloves. 

Back Arm rules 

Tback arm rule in foil will apply. If you have any questions about these please speak to your coach. 

Entries 

The organisers, at their discretion, may accept late entries but anyone entering after this time will need to bring proof of their British Fencing membership. 

Welfare Officer 

The Welfare Officer for this event is Ruth Thomson. If you have any concerns before, during or after the event you can email Ruth here.
