Jo (front row 2nd from left) was part of the victorious SE team, winners of the Winton Cup 2017

The 10th Veterans Winton Cup was held over the weekend of 23&24th September at the National Sports Centre in Lilleshall. 10 regional teams competed against each other in 6 weapons. The South East Region Team won the competition in 2016, beating the South West Region team who had won the cup for the first 8 years of the competition. The pressure was on the South East Region Team to retain their title - and they did! The South East Region Team were announced the 2017 Veteran Winton Cup winners. The atmosphere in the hall was buzzing throughout the weekend. Typical of a veterans event, which is for fencers aged 40+, it is very competitive but a very friendly competition.
