Event Information

This event is sanctioned by the Maryland division of USA Fencing. Entries are limited to a maximum of 56 fencers. This event will follow the standard USA Fencing format, with a single round of pools, 100% promotion to direct elimination, and no fence-off for third place. Pools will consist of seven fencers whenever possible; depending on the number of entries, we may also use pools of six or eight. 

Doors open at 9:00am and check-in closes at 10:00am. No fencers will be allowed to check in for the event after 10:00am.

Fencers must have a birth year of 2010 or earlier. Fencers must have a valid USA Fencing membership at the Access level or higher. If you are not a member of USA Fencing, you can sign up here: https://member.usafencing.org/signup

Preregistration & Walk-Ins

Fencers must be preregistered by midnight on the day of the event. If the tournament is not full, walk-in registrations will be accepted for $50. 


Venue Information

Modern Duelists is located in the Triumph Industrial Park at 505 Blue Ball Road, Elkton, MD 21921, just a few minutes off of I-95. On site parking is available both in front of and to the right of the building.

Our 3600 sq.ft. fencing room has five full-size strips (non-grounded), plenty of room for spectators and fencing bags, and a slip-resistant sport court tile floor. Events will run on a maximum of four strips to provide space for referees and a safe run-by area. We have a limited number of chairs, so we recommend fencers bring their own. 


Medals & Awards

Medals will be given to the top four fencers.
