Great Yarmouth Invitation Series

Please note this page is currently being redeveloped, more content will be added shortly.

The Great Yarmouth Invitation Series consists of a range of competitions which aim to encourage fencers into competitive fencing. To do this we put on fun, friendly and well organised events which act as an introduction for fencers entering their first competition whilst still maintaining a competitive environment for those more experienced. These events are non-ranking, but open to all who want to have a good day of fencing.

The series currently consists of two events, our Epee & Sabre Invitation which is generally held in March, and our main event – The Foil Invitation in August. All events are currently held at Ormiston Denes Community Sports Centre, Lowestoft, NR32 4AH. Events generally consist of two rounds of poules, with everyone progressing to the direct elimination stages. An Invitation special is the reward of chocolate, not only for the medallists but also those who qualify for one of our special categories. In the past these have included: Best First-Timer (those for whom this is their first competition), Best Newcomer to Fencing (those with less than 2 years fencing experience) and Best U18 and O40 in senior events.

The 2017 Great Yarmouth Foil Invitation will be held on Sunday 20th August, an entry form for this can be found here.
