The 23rd Tournament of King John III at Gniew Castle is now officially over!

The competition was on really high level with many strong hits. Thanks to a perfect weather we were able to run all competitions. We ran 6 jousting sessions, crossbow tournament, mounted skill at arms and a mounted melee.

Team England with Sean George and Steve Mallet became the Champion Team!
