2018 Youth 5 Nations, Cardiff

Scottish Fencing is hoping to send a squad of fencers to 2018 Youth 5 nations being held at the Cardiff Met University.

The dates are 1 and 2 September with individual championships on the Saturday and Team matches the next day.

Following the recent Cadet and Junior Commonwealth Championships we recognise that the same squad of fencers might not be able to afford another trip away so are considering opening this event to less experienced fencers who would welcome the opportunity to represent Scotland.

2018 CFC selection update

The documents below are the Men's and Women's Foil and Men's Sabre data which will be put to the selectors for the Commonwealth Championships in Canberra in November.  British Fencing has not published its July ranking lists so these are based on 11 months of our selection period.  We are not aware of any competitions in June which will have a material impact on the selection decisions.  An updated Women's Sabre is now posted below.

The documents below are the Men's and Women's Epee data which will be put to the selectors for the Commonwealth Championships in Canberra in November.  The other weapons will be posted as soon as possible after British Fencing publishes its July ranking lists.

Fencers who wish to make any representations should send them to performance@scottish-fencing.com and selection@scottish-fencing.com within ten days of the posting of the lists.

2018 Forging the Future

Here at Scottish Fencing we are moving into a new investment period with our majority funder sportscotland.

With this in mind, we felt this was an opportunity to think again about our long term goals.  The Board of Scottish Fencing formed a strategy sub-group under the leadership of Independent Director Gail Prince and the sub-group strategic recommendations for the next 6 years are enclosed here.

2019 Challenge Wratislavia - outcome of feedback

A big thank you to all who sent comments or spoke to Ross, Scottish Fencing Director for Development regarding Challenge Wratislavia.

It is a great event and clearly been a big part of many of our younger fencers development. The outcomes from the consultation are:

2019 Challenge Wratislavia - thank you

Thank you to everyone who contributed to the consultation process For Challenge Wratislavia 2019. It was fantastic to hear from so many within our fencing community and for me it feels like the final process is a real community effort.

2019 Challenge Wratislavia - proposals

Competing at Challenge Wratislavia has been a highlight for many of our younger fencers. It is an inspirational tournament. It is challenging but not beyond many of our younger fencers which makes it an ideal first step to competing outside of the UK.

Friendships made on this trip are a legacy that bonds future Scottish Fencing teams and it is great to see how young people develop during the trip.

It is a fantastic event but over the years it has grown beyond the capacity for Scottish Fencing to manage with the resources available. And this is why we are conducting a review.
