Dan the man does it again.

Dan the man does it again.

Another successful competition as Dan Critchlow Fencing won the UK Fencing Championships for a second time.

Congratulations to Dan & Jake at Dan Critchlow Fencing for taking first position, Perrett Fencing 2nd and Sam Moore 3rd. We are looking forward to Dan & Jake coming back in 2019 to defend their title.

The weather this year was very warm so I must congratulate all the competitors for enduring the hot conditions.

Big thanks must go to all our sponsors:

  • Calders & Grandidge who supplied the timber and gates
  • Hampton Steel & Wire who supplied the wire
  • Lonza
  • Koppers
  • M & M Timber
  • WJ Components
  • Buxton Press

The fence was 40 metres post and wire with a 3 metre field gate hung at the end of the fence line, with hand held tools only. And a hand tied joint in the netting towards the middle. Plus a hand tied join in the top wire too.

I would also like to thank both our judges Richard Foxley and Tim Bennett. A special mention needs to go to John Clancy for doing the commentary once again this year. Also I would like to thank Lewis and Damien for their help on the Fencing News stand as well.

We are all looking forward to the competition in 2019 and Fencing News will be in touch soon with more information.
