A few weeks before Corporate Challenge, the Red Rock Fencing Center offers a crash course in épée fencing - the weapon used in Corporate Challenge fencing. We charge a nominal fee for company teams and also offer equipment rental and free training space.
Corporate Challenge fencing features épée, the dueling sword. While you can score only with the tip of the weapon, the entire body is a target AND both opponents can score touches at the same time.
Depending upon the number of teams involved, the tournament involves team bouts of 27 or 45 points. IF we have more than 10 teams we will use a total of 27 points (3 touches for each fencer) for the format. If less than 10 teams then we can go to a total of 45 points (5 touches per fencer) Each team has three fencers who fence each of the other team's opponents in 3-touch or 5-touch bouts.
Teams may have an alternate (4'th person) who substitutes in during the bout.
Teams consist of ANY combination of men and women.
Other rules apply and will be communicated to the teams before the tournament.
