Ashby de la Zouch Castle Tournament Videos

So, a little treat for you all. At our recent Tournament at Ashby De La Zouche castle, we had a friendly camera in the crowd on the Sunday and we have a few videos of the rounds for you!

INDIVIDUAL ROUNDS

In these, each team selects a representative to contest a weapon type. The team lying in last place gets to choose their opponent, the remainder then fight – with the winners then deciding the day..

Sadly, our friendly camerawoman had no battery left at this point so we have no video of the grand melee for you, nor the tie break between Sir William Harrington and John Mortimer Esquire.

However we hope you enjoyed these videos and they give you a flavour of what was a wonderful and highly competitive event.

Just listen to the roar of the crowd!
