After leading for much of the season, Sir Jasper has triumphed in the 2016 Hever Castle jousting tournament.

With over 20 years of experience jousting in Europe, Dubai and the United States, Sir Jasper utilised his considerable skills and fought hard to regain his champion’s crown from 2015 overall winner Sir Sam of Hever.

A four-day joust-a-thon over the August bank holiday weekend provided a fantastic climax to the season at Hever Castle, with stunning weather and big crowds gathering to enjoy the entertainment.

The final four days were fraught with high speed action including: tilting, knights crashing to the floor, lances shattering, melees, foot combat, excellent swordsmanship and combat with all manner of medieval weapons.

The final scores in the 2016 Hever Castle jousting tournament were:

  1. Sir Jasper 372
  2. Sir Sam of Hever 360
  3. Lord Ashley of Hampshire 312
  4. Sir Stephen of Porlock 294
