2019 RAF Open

Sat, 29 Jun 2019 - Sun, 30 Jun 2019
RAF Cosford

The RAF Fencing Union is pleased to announce the RAF Open 2019 will run from 29-30th June 2019. This event is open to all.

Following on from last years success at the RAF100 Open we have made some improvements:

  • Double the amount of referees. Fully qualified and experienced. Many of whom are FIE level and on the circuit this season.
  • Faster delivery of results to the athletes via Engarde online software.
  • The purchase of 6 trophies for the winner in each event. To be returned in 2020. These will be announced on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
  • Excalibur Sports will be attending for you to purchase any equipment you might require during the competition.

Our venue is RAF Cosford in Shropshire which once held the British Nationals and our team will ensure that this event runs smoothly and on time. RAF Cosford is a very large venue and we will be using 3 full size basketball courts. This means there will be plenty of space between pistes for the referees and more than enough room for everyone’s bags to not get in the way of fencing.

There are large changing facilities and showers available. There will be raised seating so that fencers and spectators can see all the action. We have a small number of raised platforms for photographers to use that can be moved easily to capture the perfect shot.

The venue is well connected with transport links. It is a 2 minute drive from the M54 J3 and there is a train station (Cosford) also a 2 minute walk from the venue. Parking is free in the large car park across the road. See the information pack for a map of the site.

The format will be 2 rounds of poules followed by Direct Elimination. All competitors will go through to the Direct Elimination stage.
