How to Enter: 

  • Please ensure all students wishing to compete sign up to the SSS Playwaze system by following the steps in this handy guide
  • One person should enter a team via the SSS Playwaze system HERE on behalf of their team mates. This would ideally be the role of the Captain, as Playwaze will automatically allocate the role of ‘Captain’ to this person
  • All fencers wishing to be part of the team should search for the team and ‘apply’ to join it, so the Captain can ‘accept’ them and ensure they are listed on the team sheet

Entry Deadline: 4pm on 22nd November 2021

Entry Payment: You will be able to pay by card on this entry system. If you wish to request support from your Sports Union to cover the cost of your attendance, please click ‘Defer Payment’ and this will send them an invoice request. PLEASE NOTE – you should talk to your Sports Union about financial support BEFORE you sign-up to this event. No entries will be accepted after the deadline.
