Qatar fencing

Once again the clash of swords will be heard in Qatar, only this time it won’t be feuding desert tribes battling in the desert. The 4th Qatar Fencing Grand Prix (epee), with a total prize of $31,000, will be starting on the 19th January and running until the 21st. The event is being run by the Qatar Fencing Federation (www.qatarfencing.com), will consist of both individual and group events and will take place in the Aspire Academy in Sport City. On Friday, heats for the individual competition will start from 8.30, and on Saturday the competition will start at 9.00, culminating in the individual finals at 18.00. The team events will take place on Sunday, again starting at 9.00 and finishing at 18.00.

(When I rang to see how much the tickets were, the federation didn't know, although they thought it would probably be free).
