The GB Cup

The GB Cup is a new annual National tournament for intermediate Regional fencers. Fencers will qualify through the Welsh Qualifiers for the National Final with the two highest placed fencers in each weapon being selected to represent Wales at the National Finals.

 

The inaugural GB Cup will be held on Saturday 23rd June 2018 at the David Ross Sports Village at The University of Nottingham.
