If you want to know how a team match works - read this great description: http:// popefencing.org/tournaments-101/team-match/
Teams must have a minimum of three fencers, but fourth & fifth fencers as reserves are recommended (although only 3 fencers + 1 reserve can fence in each match).
Fencers can be members of a Foil team and an Epee or Sabre team, but cannot be members of both an Epee and Sabre team as these are on the same day.
The event will be mixed gender and mixed gender teams are allowed. Schools can enter as many teams as they like in each weapon. There will be no composite teams.
Fencers in a team must stay the same throughout the entire comp, I.e. the same people must fence in the pool round as in the Direct Elimination round.
With the foil event being split over two Saturdays, fencers must be present at the first Saturday (pools) to fence in the second Saturday (direct elimination)
A team may consist of one or both genders.
A fencer and/or team must compete in the pool round to compete in the direct elimination round.
