The 2018 SoCal Open

Jonathan Irvine flicks to the back of David Wharton in the Mixed Foil Round of 32 at the first annual SoCal Open.

The inaugural SoCal Open fencing tournament was held at the 12,000-square-foot Pacific Community Center in Glendale on Sunday, May 6, 2018. With 95 entries in 3 events, Mixed Foil and Mixed Epee both reached A2 status, while Women’s Epee was a C1. In all, 9 fencers earned new ratings, including Ilya Ayupov (UFA) who got his A! Thanks to all the volunteers who helped make this tournament happen, and to our referees who kept things running. See you at next year’s SoCal Open!

Some equipment and articles of clothing were left at the venue. To retrieve them, please contact Lost and Found.
