What is the Cadet Winton?

The Cadet Winton is an inter-regional team event, held just before Christmas at Millfield School in Somerset.

Each region selects a team of 3 or 4 fencers for each weapon and sex, who then fight an all-fight-all format over two days to determine the winning region.

The event does not carry any ranking points, but is immensely popular with the fencers, and has the relaxed atmosphere of an end-of-term party. Selection policy differs from region to region, but the standard of fencing is usually extremely high.
