Nobility, honour, respect and tradition are the values of fencing. French is the official language of this combat sport, so refereeing at international competitions is conducted in French. A fencing competition in French in the majestic Grand Palais? Individual épée, individual sabre, team sabre, individual foil and team foil are sure to be the most exciting events!

This fencing competition will feature individual and team events in three weapons: foil, épée and sabre. Did you know? With a total of 123 medals, France is the second country with the most fencing medals after Italy, which has 130.

The Grand Palais was built for the 1900 Universal Exhibition. A true Parisian perl, the building hosts numerous events, both sporting and artistic.
A blend of classicism and modernity, its exceptional architecture features the largest Nave in Europe, with a surface area of 13,500 m2, crowned by a 17,500 m2 glass roof. Located just 3km from our hotel, it’s a must-see!
