Russell Swords are pleased to announce our intention to take a youth team to Challenge Wratislavia. Although organised by Russell Swords, we intend to open this out to all fencers across Wales, and use independent selection criteria.
The aim is to give those fencers who regularly compete within the UK the chance to compete at an international level within their age groups. Competing internationally can be a rich and rewarding experience, and will give those who are aiming for the cadet GB squad a taste of the international stage.
We will select a team of U15 and U13 fencers to attend international competitions, starting with the Challenge Wratislavia, Poland in March 2017. This is a 3 weapon event on 23rd-27th March 2017.
The trip is to be fully funded by the athletes selected.
The Community Pages part of the website is designed to offer clubs the opportunity to advertise their activities more widely. It can be used for competitions, training camps or pretty much anything. The only proviso is that the Club must be affiliated to Welsh Fencing.
First of all, you will need to create the necessary article on your own website. We do not host the article - we will only link to it. That way you can easily keep it up to date and add any further documents yourself. To request that your article be published, you will need to send an email detailing the request to firstname.lastname@example.org along with a link to the article to be advertised. We will also need to know when to take the link down. Once we have received your request, we will review it and make a decision as to whether we will accept it or not.
Readers are asked to note that Welsh Fencing cannot accept responsibility for the quality, safe delivery or operation of any products advertised or mentioned in the Community Pages. Acceptance of advertisements does not imply any form of approval or recommendation. All requests are subject to the scrutiny of Welsh Fencing who reserves the right to refuse, amend, withdraw, or otherwise deal with articles submitted to it at its absolute discretion and without explanation.
