More Info
The Tom Wright Memorial Fencing Tournament is hosted by the Capitol Division in honor of Tom Wright, who fenced sabre at Harvard graduating in 1941. As a youth of 18, while vacationing with his parents, he was challenged to a duel by an Italian nobleman who mistakenly assumed he had designs on a young lady. He won the duel, which was fought with epees. He had a distinguished career as an architect in Washington D.C. and returned to fencing at the NIH club in the 1990's, when he was in his 70's. He went to England on one of the first USA Veteran teams before World Veteran Championships were officially recognized. He was a perfect gentleman whose love of fencing led him to arrange demonstration matches at Washington's Cosmos Club.

This competition is open to fencers who were born in 1978 or earlier. $10.00 registration fee plus $25.00 entry fee per event if preregistered. $10.00 registration fee plus $35.00 entry fee if not preregistered.

All sabre fencers must have 800NW gloves as specified by US Fencing. New sabre rules (en garde line, etc.) will be followed.
