Format of Events
All events for Central Opens will be fenced as Mixed Gender.

Individual Events will be fenced as a single round of Pools followed by a Direct Elimination round.

The teams event will be a Swiss seeded speed fencing event that will see teams compete for 6 rounds and the speed component should make each round approximately 15 minutes long

The following rules will be enforced for this team event.
• All bouts are to 1 point instead of 5 points
• Bouts are only 1 minute long instead of 3 minutes
• Priority is decided before the start of each match
• The first team to get to 9 points (or) the highest score at the end of match 9 wins
• All other team rules will be applied as normal
• There will be 6 Rounds (Less if there are less teams)

How does Swiss Seeding work?
The first round is either drawn based on team seeding. All participants then proceed to the next round in which winners are pitted against winners, losers are pitted against losers and so on.
In subsequent rounds, each team will face an opponent with the same, or almost the same, cumulative score. No team is paired with the same opponent twice. In the event of a tie for placings then this will be decided on indicator and results against the other teams.
