2018 CFC Selection - Senior

Congratulations to the following fencers who are selected for the 2018 Commonwealth Fencing Championships. Please note that selection is subject to appeal.  Any fencer wishing to appeal their non-selection should email  admin@scottish-fencing.com by noon Friday 17 August 2018.  The only grounds for appeal on discretionary selections are errors on rankings or omissions of relevant information for selectors.

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.

2018 CFC selection

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.

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.
