Competition Format

Provided time, space and entry numbers permit, each competition will have 2 rounds of poules, followed by direct elimination. If competitions are combined into mixed age group events because entry numbers are low, the best Under 14 and Under 16 entries will receive awards. Master-at-Arms titles will be awarded in each age band to the best performers across all three weapons.
