Our goals with Battle of the Bridge are the following:

  1. Offer an event with a strong beginner focus, to balance up the many prestigious events in the Nordic region. We want this event to be a good first or second tournament, but at the same time offer good quality bouts for more seasoned fencers.
  2. Offer a quality sabre tournament to give the growing sabre scene more events to improve.
  3. Work against a possible stagnation of the Nordic scene by offering a variation in both tournament setup and ruleset.
  4. Give fencers a lot of bouts in the event to give great value for the money.
  5. Organizing an event that’s professional and of high quality, but at the same time relaxed and friendly with a clear learning focus, rather than a prestigious event for fencers to train for.
