The aim of the Union is to develop and encourage fencing and to promote and conduct amateur fencing championships within Kent.
After two days of exciting and hard fought matches the South East region won the Senior Winton Cup.
Congratulations to all the South East team across the three weapons that competed.
Kent finished in 3rd place behind Devon and Somerset at the Excalibur inter county fencing competition held in Bath. The Kent men's Epee team were the highest placed men's Epee team being undefeated all weekend and Adam Whitelaw was the highest placed individual men's epeeist. Well done to the whole team for some very close matches and for giving their all for their county. Photos of the Kent team at the Excalibur can be seen on our gallery.
The South East Veterans team won the Veterans Winton cup for the first time.
The South West were finally beaten after a 7 year undefeated run.
South East came close last year losing first place by only hit. This year they were undefeated, beating the other 9 regions with a really brilliant team effort.
