Combined Individual and team events


Breaking from the traditional format, the organisers of the M8 Open last year experimented with combining a traditional competitive individual open with a fun team competition.  It was hugely popular and so we have decided to run with this format again.


Here’s how it works:


9:00          Check in for teams and start for poules of the mixed team competition.

                  Exact format will depend on number of teams entered.


11:00        Team competition suspended and start of the single round of poules for the individual tournament.


12:30        1st round of individual DE starts


13:30        2nd round of DE continues and team event resumes

               ( fencers prioritise the individual event - teams should have a reserve)


17:00        Completion of Individual event


18:00        Completion of Team event


The individual event will run as normal with points counting for BF ranking but with only a single round of poules.

The team event will add a fun element and provide a full day of fencing for everyone.

            Team Event (Starts 9am)

Poule unique, or short poules and DE

Gala final and presentation ceremony

Trophy for top team in each weapon
