Launching Cardiff LPJS Épée
We are delighted to announce that, after have run successful foil and sabre events in 2014 and 2015, and having settled comfortably into our new home at Cardiff Academy of Fencing, we have decided to launch an épée event in 2016. The inaugural Cardiff LPJS Épée will take place on the 5th March 2016 and entries can be made now through the Leon Paul Junior Series Portal.
We are passionate about giving young fencers the best possible experience and will run the épée event to the high standards we have been praised for in the past. This includes a large venue with plenty of space between pistes and and for spectators, high-quality referees, paying and catering for referees from other clubs, live results services, electronic check in, and speedy submission of results to Leon Paul. For 2016 we are hoping to install additional monitors and projectors throughout the venue to display results; this removes the need for fencers or parents to cram around small pieces of paper to try check results or find piste allocations.
We are really excited about the 2016 LPJS season. We hope that clubs that have attended the foil and sabre events in the past will continue to support the Cardiff events and we look forward to meeting lots of new fencers and parents through this event.
