The Sussex Open Epee is a small friendly competition with two rounds of poules.
Nicola fenced beautifully all the way through the poule and was unbeaten going into the DE's.
Some nice fast and accurate hits saw Nicola through to the final to fight Rebecca Mayle who is returning to the circuit fully motivated after an injury that took her out of training for a while. The final was a closely fought battle which resulted in Nicola making two spirited come backs to level the score each time. Sadly for Nicola and Dream Fencing on this occasion she was pipped to first place by a couple of good hits against her.
So second in the tournament but best veteran again!
Well done to Nicola.
