Manchester Sword 2018 - TEAMS

Sat 30th June 2018 - Sun 01st July 2018

ENTER COMPETITION


SATURDAY CHECK-IN CHANGES

Due to the number of teams entered there will be a few changes made to Saturday's schedule:

1. Team Foil check-in closes now at 1000 rather than 0930.
2. Team Epee check-in closes now at 1030 rather than 1000.
3. Team Sabre check-in remains unchanged and will close at 1100.

These changes are to allow an additional 30 minutes travel time for those coming on the day and reduce the amount of waiting around during the tournament.

FORMAT FOR SATURDAY

Again, due to the entry numbers there will be a change in the format of the team competition.

1. The format will be a SINGLE POULE UNIQUE rather than 2 small poules then D/Es.
2. Medals will be awarded to the top 3 teams in the order they finish the poule.
3. THIS APPLIES TO ALL WEAPONS.

This change is to give all teams more matches for your money and to reduce waiting around during the tournament.

FORMAT FOR SUNDAY

1. Format will remain as 2 rounds of poules of 5/6 followed by D/Es
2. BOTH poules will count towards the seeding for the D/Es
3. The first round of poules will be SEMI-SEEDED then separated BY CLUB.
4. FOIL seeds will be fencers either in the MENS TOP 100 or WOMENS TOP 60 in the BF June Rankings.
5. EPEE seeds will be fencers either in the MENS TOP 100 or WOMENS TOP 60 in the BF June Rankings.
6. SABRE seeds will be fencers either in the MENS TOP 75 or WOMENS TOP 40 in the BF June Rankings.

This is to try and keep the poules relatively balanced considering the mixed gender format and so that all matches count.
