A Prestige Tourney is a formal SCA tournament, generally fought in double-elimination style.

What differentiates this type of tournament is that the combat is preceded by a formal procession of all combatants and their consorts; the combatants present their consort to the Crown, publicly declaring for whom they are fighting and usually give a short speech on how what person inspires them. Often this declaration is rewarded by a token (usually a flower) that the combatant then presents to their consort.

In the spirit of the tournament all combatants are generally encouraged to show a fine heraldic display and to compete in the most chivalrous possible manner.

The Lady Mary Memorial Tournament in Ealdormere is a notable Prestige Tourney.
