Friday 9 November 2018

Congratulations to James Hinwood (Rt U6), who is now 11th in the British Junior Epée rankings.

James competed in the Leon Paul BRC Junior Epée event in London on 28th October, an event that attracted 70 competitors from a range of clubs from throughout the UK.

In his 1st round pool, James had four victories and two defeats, giving him a seeding of 15th.

In the elimination rounds he won his last 64 (15-11), last 32 (15-13), last 16 (15-14), quarter-final (15-12) and semi-final (14-15).

Although missing the final by a single hit, this is a tremendous achievement to give him valuable points to move to 11th in the British rankings.
