The European Championships for Beetle Weight Robot Combat

The European Championships for Beetle Weight Robot Combat

Sir William Borlase's Grammar School

The Borlase Theatre
West Street, Marlow

Sir William Borlases Grammar School is proud to have teamed up with Global IT company VMware and the Robot Wars World Champions, Team Storm to bring the European Beetleweight Championship to the Borlase Theatre this summer. We will have 50 robots from across Europe competing in a purpose built arena, protected from the crowd with the same style bullet-proof glass that the BBC show has.

Whilst the robots you see on TV weigh over 100Kg, the Beetleweight Class robots weigh just one and a half kg and are the perfect weight class to see up close and get an understanding as to what goes in to building some of these incredible machines. As well as the teams from across Europe, the school also has a robot entered into the competition.. after winning a competition at the school to get selected to take part.

Many of the teams taking part you will recognize from the BBC TV Series Robot Wars and we will have some of their Heavyweight robots on display also.

The day will be a relaxed event, set in the schools theatre .. the arena is around 3m by 3m in size and we'll have screens and projectors set up so you can get a good view of the action. Tickets are priced at just 8 pounds so if you fancy dropping by for a few hours to watch the competition, and meet some of the teams please do so.
