Entries close: Noon 25 January 2019 Entry form is here

Referees:

U20 entrants who stay to referee the younger age groups will receive a discount (£5) on their entry fee, paid on the day. We still need clubs to help referee the U20 age group so please ask your club for volunteer referees.

Other information:

 Under 20 - years of birth 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003

Under 15 - years of birth 2004,2005

Under 13 - years of birth 2006, 2007

(There is a minimum age, we cannot accept entrants born earlier than 2006)

There is no U17 age group this year. Running four six weapon events across one weekend is tough job. Last year, all but four of the U17 entrants across all six weapons also entered the U20 event. Which is why the U17 and U20 events for 2019 are combined.
