  • Longsword tournament open (DDHF ladder tournament) with 36 spots
  • Longsword tournament for beginners with 20 spots

So reserve the 24th of February 2024 in your calendar!

Registration will open on 03.12.23 at 7pm CET. It follows the First-Come-First-Serve principle; once all spots for a tournament are gone, you are placed in a queue. The participation fee is 49€. We ask spectators to also register, a respective free ticket is available for this purpose. The registration will take place on the Schwabenfedern event page.

Since the competitions overlap, every person can only participate in one tournament.
