Background

bob-grange.pngRobert ('Bob') Grange took up fencing in his early seventies, attending one of the Northampton Fencing Club beginner's courses. He took to the sport immediately and quickly became proficient at all three weapons, although Epee was his favourite. His enthusiasm was boundless and he always had a smile on his face. In no time at all, he became a fixture at the club. The cadets referred to him affectionately as 'Mister Bob'. He was a true old-school Gentleman and everyone loved him. So, he was the obvious choice when the post of Club President became available. He took the post on, considering it a privilege and made it his own. He held the post until his sudden passing in March 2018. The Committee decided that the Club should run an annual memorial competition in memory of Bob. Given Bob's love of all three weapons, it seemed fitting that it should be a team competition, covering all three disciplines and so The Bob Grange Cup was created.

Eligibility

All fencers must be aged 13 or over.

All fencers must hold a current, valid British Fencing (or equivalent) membership which allows competing in this level of competition.
