Exciting opportunity time: The Malta Open Competition in June! We received the below invitation..
I would like to introduce you to the SPFC Malta Open Fencing Championship 2016 to be held on 18th June to 20nd June 2016.
The Malta Open started 19 years ago as a friendly encounter with British fencers. Today it has developed in a friendly international tournament and over the years have attracted fencers from other countries such as Italy, Spain, France, Germany, Azerbaijan, Denmark, Sweden, Canada, Macedonia and Austria. The tournament has proved a good attraction for those fencers who maybe never had made it for their National teams and don’t have a lot of opportunities to go to a foreign competition. The competition is held in the Depiro basketball club gymnasium in the village of Mtarfa. The closest tourist area is Bugibba and Qawra and further away Mellieha
