It is worth visiting us
Olimpici Grand Prix  is a popular épée competition serie with alternative formulas. Meanwhile the five different spots in Hungary offer other leisure & cultural programs.

About Olimpici GP
Olimpici Grand Prix is a new competition series in the world of Hungarian epée-fencing, launched in 2006. Győző Kulcsár, our great fencing master and olympic champion has founded the Olimpici Public Benefit Foundation together with his enthusiastic team. The idea is based on a concept to give new stamina for the upcoming generation of epée-fencers.


Formula
The participants have four age-groups as we reordered them from the season of 2009/2010 – according to the proffesional decision of the Olimpici Public Fundation. Now the structures could be more sensitive to the knowledge, experience in specific age-groups… plus, we created a new age-group for the real beginner but up-to-competition generation, called Törpici, which means mini fencer… smile

Equipment
General rules
According to the rules of the FIE and the Hungarian Fencing Federation fencers in all age groups have to armed with equipments match the general safety regulations: compulsory to wear underplastron with FIE label of 800 NW sign; mask, jacket and breeches with FIE label of 350 NW sign.
Masks
The new safety fastening system of fencing masks is not necessary for the age groups of Olimpici GP. In Hungary the new system is applied for cadets, juniors and adults.
Freightening patterns, individual paintwork other than national flags are NOT ALLOWED on masks!

Blades
In category mini, weapons must be fitted with blade size ZERO, and small bell guard. This is compulsory! In other categories there is no any restriction or rule about blade size.


Age groups in the season of 2018/19:

Törpici / Minis (born after 01.01.2007.)
They are not allowed to compete in other age groups!
Gyermek / Kids (born between 01.01.2006. – 31.12.2007.)

Serdülő / Adolescents (born between 01.01.2004. – 31.12.2007.)


The competition has irregular formulas
(Last update on 19 of October, 2018):


Minis
Two rounds, no elimination (4 hits, 1×3 mins), 6–7 fencers in poules.
From the cumulative ranking list the first 32 fencers go onto tableau 32 – (10 hits, 2×3 mins)
