Congratulations to all fencers who represented the Wales region at this years British Youth Championships!
Another year and another lot of fantastic results to report. This year we took home 14 top 8 finishes, 5 of those being top 4 and one of those a finalist!
Special mentions to:
Medals aside, the Welsh contingency showed support not only for fellow club mates, but as a whole body. It was fantastic to watch everyone come together, congratulate and encourage each other throughout the day. We also want to take a moment to thank Owen Edwards, Celyn Lewis and Megan Ware who gave up time to referee as well as compete this year in order to help ensure the competition ran smooth.
Well done, fencers, parents and coaches!

This weekend at the BUCS Championships there was an incident where a broken foil blade pierced a pair of breeches and caused a leg injury.
British Fencing would like to take this opportunity to remind all coaches and clubs to be ever vigilant. Whilst we can never reduce the risk of accidents to zero, wearing the correct safety equipment during lessons and sparring, as set out in our Safety Guidelines (http://www.britishfencing.com/governance/guidelines/), will reduce the risk of serious injury.

I just wanted to say a big 'thank-you' to all of you who helped at today's Youth Foil event. We had a massive number of refereeing volunteers, without whom I am sure we would still be there now.
So, thanks to:
|Luke Deamer||Gethin ap Phylip||Carl Difford|
|Mike Kocan||Richard Thomas||Lyn Robinson|
|Lynne Melia||Ethan Ridsdale||Rhodri Gibbon|
|Harri Hayes||Celyn Lewis|
If I have forgotten anyone, my apologies - it wasn't intentional!
Also, a big thanks to Jayne Ware for her work at the Control Desk, and Nigel for his Armoury skills.
All in all, a great day.
Those of you you fenced at the Welsh Open will have seen the cameras. A package was produced for the S4C programme, Clwb, which is now available on Youtube, here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iCcfJ3cd3ro
