it’s been a quiet couple of months since Battle of the Nations, world championships (BotN) however this is merely the calm before the storm because we are in for one hell of a season with honour to be fought for and trophies to be won!
Over the last two months in the cool down from BotN saw some much needed development to our headquarters near Derby, we completed our permanent lists, which are now big enough to hold 5v5 and 21v21! We also erected a number of swinging pells to work on those all important techniques!
Northern lists had its first open day, based in Sheffield and run by the Fed’s very own Dave Murray everyone can now come and do softkit training without having to buy any of the gear! There’s also facilities to accommodate full contact armoured training and fighting.

We had a very successful world championships, UK 3 (The UK Federation) made the play offs, UK 2 (Battle Heritage) got through to the quarter finals and UK 1 (White Company) made the semi finals.
As a UK team we finished fourth in the “Royal” 21 versus 21.
In the coming month the UK Federation will be running a softkit and techniques session at Northern lists open day, with a full contact armoured training demonstration in the afternoon! Do be sure to pop in, join in and see what we do best! There is also National training in Northampton with White Company and Battle Heritage to get a head start on next years world championships! We’re also running a number of training weekends, see below for our coming training weekends and event dates. We’re also competing in France in Tournoi de Béhourd de Saint Germain l’Herm in July, taking two teams some of our newest members are going to be tasting combat for the first time.
