Various blade size requirements have been applied to various events in the past. Surrey County Fencing Union (SCFU) used to allow any size in County Events but by being different to the Region regulations, this created problems. When the SCFU committee considered this, the following precedents were noted for maximum blade sizes:
|Region U10||0||where held|
|Region U12||3||2||2||includes SE Region Youth Events run by Surrey|
|Region U14||3||2||2||includes SE Region Youth Events run by Surrey|
|Leon Paul U9||0||0||0|
|Leon Paul U13||3||2||2|
|All 15 & older||5||5||5|

For SCFU County Events, it was decided to adopt the following sizes :
|SCFU U10||3||2||2||different to British Youth Championships|
