You’ve been fencing for a while and have decided to go to a tournament. Congratulations! This is a big step! The whole process can be a little overwhelming, so here’s a checklist to make sure you have everything you need. I have also included some suggestions of items parents/spectators might want to take along. A sabre event will last anywhere from 1.5 to 4 hours, depending on the number of competitors and how organized the event is, so you’ll need to plan accordingly. Let me know if you have any suggestions to add to the list!
