This was the first experience of an open competition for three of the Salopian fencers and all did extremely well. Lucy Petch (MSH UVI) a finished 13th in a very strong field in the Ladies' Sabre competition; Izzy Codron (EDH UVI) finished 10th in the Ladies' Foil; and Tom Creamer (S LVI) finished 45th in the Men’s Epée.
Ross Viljoen (PH LVI) and Jonty Small (M UVI) competed in the Men's Sabre event, finishing 17th and 25th respectively.
Marco Lee (I V) was in top form throughout the day, winning through to the final of the Men’s Foil event. Although he eventually lost to David Alexander (Nottingham) 15-6, this was a tremendous performance.
Scott Reynolds (Rb V) also competed very well in the Men’s Foil and finished 29th.
