Tournament Results

A Big Thank You to Everyone

The Memorial Tournament was our largest yet (45 competitors) and we had great participation from 7 HEMA clubs from Whangarei all the way to Christchurch. Within Auckland Sword and Shield we consider this tournament to be our best yet and it would not have been half as good without the skills and enthusiasm that were on display during the day. We look forward to seeing you all back next year.
