Cambridge Open Air

Cambridge Open Air at Jesus College in the 1970’s

What is it?

The Cambridge Open Air is a men’s and women’s open epee competition fought under the blue skies of Cambridge (a hall is at hand in case of rain!).  We are now past our 40th year of running the competition.

Where and when?

Sadly, because of the Coronavirus, we were unable to hold the competition this year.  The Club Committee will review the situation for a potential 2021 competition early in 2021.

Typically the competition is held on the First July at St Bede’s School, Birdwood Rd, Cambridge.
