Tree of Shields will be hosting a national tournament on the 04/05/2019. This will be the competitive tournament of the north. There will be steel longsword, sabre and rapier tournaments running all day, with sponsorship prizes of steel swords of each kind and some amazing runner up prizes.
We will host a dedicated day of tournaments, this means there will be no gimmicks or classes just well organised, professionally judged tournaments with first rate prizes. We have already secured Sponsorship from multiple mainstream blacksmiths and HEMA merchants and are in the process of testing rule-sets and training judges.
Come and join us for what will be a superb day of fighting, socialising and generally winning at life.
Further information – Added 01/01/2019:
The event will be held at the Victoria hall, Keighley, BD21 3JN, running from 9am -5pm (sign in from as early as 8.30AM).
The price £50 for a full ticket or £10 for a spectator ticket, both include food and drink all day.
We are in the final stages of testing our rule-set and will be publishing information in the coming weeks, but safety will be our main concern and our kit list will match the current tournament standard and won’t have any nasty surprises.
You can drop us an email on firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
See you on May the 4th.
The Ive brothers.
