The GB Cup

The GB Cup is a new annual National tournament for intermediate Regional fencers. Fencers will qualify through a Regional event for the National Final.  

The aim of the event is to provide adult intermediate Regional fencers with a new annual National tournament.  

Regions across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland will nominate an event taking place in their region to count as their GB Cup qualifier. Based on placings in these events, along with the eligibility criteria for the finals event, Regions will select the two highest placed fencers in each weapon to represent their Region 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. Nottingham was chosen as a location due to its central location and the opportunity to use the world-class sporting facilities offered by the recently opened David Ross Sports Village. 

More information on Regional Qualifying events will be announced as they are confirmed.

Please read the Regional Event Information to view the eligibility criteria and to find out more: The GB Cup Regional Event Information 2018.
