2015 Winton Cup; Section Team competition

The Winton Cup is a two day 6 weapon tournament where regions fight to become the UK regional champion.   For 2015, Scotland is eligible to field two teams Atlantic'- North/West Section and 'North Sea' - Central/ East Section. If you wish to be a part of these teams please nominate yourself by completing an online application form http://goo.gl/forms/G0EiSTE7Wh or emailing admin@scottish-fencing.com with your answers. Entry deadline is 14 June.

The Winton is a competitive and fun national event that attracts fencers with a range of abilities from across the UK. Many regions use the Winton as a development opportunity for other national individual and team events, others just for some fun! Last year eight British regions contested the 2014 Senior Cup so there is plenty of fencing over the two days of competition.

The event is open to all fencers over 13 years of age who live, fence or can otherwise attribute a strong connection to a Scottish region*. We will select teams depending on number of applications for each weapon, (and then rankings and recent performance) so contact us now! We will try and accommodate everyone that wishes to participate.

As well as fencers, we are also looking for referees, team captains, helpers and all round star supporters!

Date: SATURDAY 4 JULY 2015

Location: Lee Westwood Sports Centre, Clifton Campus, Nottingham Trent University, Nottingham

We hope to hear from you soon,
