The largest non-Olympic spectator fencing tournament in modern US history is returning to New York in just a few weeks. The 2012 Fencing Masters will feature some of the absolute best international fencers as they take on the US in a send-off tournament featuring the 2012 US Olympic fencing team.
Over the next two days, organizers are giving 100 free tickets to kids under 16 – but you’ve got to act quick!
What: The 2012 Fencing Masters is an international event bringing together the US’s best fencers to face off against the best in the world before they head off to the 2012 Olympics in London. The 2010 Fencing Masters featured dozens of Olympians and over 1800 spectators for an incredible – and glamorous – showcase of the sport.
The event was conceived and produced by Olympic silver medalist Tim Morehouse as a way to promote the sport of fencing and this year Morehouse has brought together even more Olympic champions in all three weapons to take part.
Where: For the second year, Fencing Masters will be held in the Hammerstein Ballroom, 311 West 34th St. New York, NY. The Hammerstein has held countless concerts and events for clients like Mtv, the NFL, and NASCAR.
When: Tuesday, June 26th. Doors open at 6pm; the competition begins at 8pm.
