The British men's epee championships at Hendon tomorrow will be the last chance for top British fencers to prepare for the forthcoming international circuit, which starts on 6 March with the Challenge Martini event. In contention for tomorrow night's final are the defending champion, John Llewellyn, from Reading, and the London fencers, Rob Gore, The British No 1, and Mike Corish, the top Martini qualifier. However, two other fencers could produce a surprise. Steven Paul, of London's Salle Paul Club, must improve on his British ranking of sixth if he is to gain a place in Britain's squad for the world championships in Essen this summer, while John Chalmers, who eliminated the No 1 seed at a World Cup series event in Barcelona last November, has been performing well on the domestic circuit. The team event will be contested on Sunday.

How to get there: Peel Centre, Metropolitan Police Training College, Aerodrome Road, Hendon, north-west London. Nearest tube station: Colindale (Northern line). Fencing starts at 9am tomorrow with final scheduled for 7pm.
