The Bob Grange Team Competition 2024

5th May @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

£45.00
A three weapon team competition (foil , epee, sabre). Teams may be mixed or single sex.
Entry is £45 per team, with a winner's trophy and medals for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place.

The competition is run in memory of our late club President Bob Grange, and the emphasis is on participating and having fun - something Bob really epitomised.

The club encourages all members to take part regardless of experience and for members to consider fencing alternate weapons to enable teams to be formed.

Closing date for entries is Midnight on 28th April 2024

Background

Robert ('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.
