The board of Welsh Fencing would like to thank those fencers that sent in their expression of interest to represent the Welsh region in the upcoming Senior Winton Cup. The board very much appreciate your commitment and desire to fence at this event.
Unfortunately, we have only had enough responses to field 3 of the 6 teams required, and it is with regret that we are therefore not able to enter this year’s event.
The board looked at a range of options to try and fill the teams, but we understand that there were many other commitments that weekend for fencers across Wales which has led to the unavailability of many of our fencers. To enter only half a team does not align with the character and values of the Winton Cup.
We hope that this is a unique set of circumstances in 2023, and we will endeavour to send full teams to compete for this Cup in future years.
WF are pleased to introduce the ADP Cymru - an Athlete Development Programme focussed on the needs of Welsh fencers. We want to create a fencing organisation that the people of Wales can be proud to represent, support and aspire to be part of; creating a group that exhibits the best standards of personal character but also excels in technical, physical and tactical competence. Follow the link for more details on this programme.
The primary function of the Commonwealth Fencing Federation is to encourage the development of Fencing within Commonwealth countries and territories. Membership is open to national governing bodies of fencing in Commonwealth countries and territories. One of the CFF's key roles is to arrange for the regular staging of Commonwealth Fencing Championships. Events are run at Senior, Cadet & Junior, and Veteran age groups.
teamo is a communications platform, used to support team selection and communication. The platform is app-based, and allows parents to register their children. It is fully GDPR-compliant and allows parents to see any comms and invitations directed to their children, and respond on their behalf. It reduces the need for emails, which are difficult to track, and often missed because they end up in Junk folders.
Are you eligible to fence for Wales? That's in here. As well as selection criteria across each of our age categories (Youth, Cadet, Junior, Senior and Veteran), and across each of the events types (Commonwealth, National and Regional).
We have worked with a local supplier, Olorun Sports, to design a bespoke set of kit that reflects the Welsh national colours of green and red. The aim is to give all members a clearer identity as Welsh fencers.
Everything related to Corporate Governance. Here you will find our Articles, which define how we manage the business. You will also find all the AGM minutes since incorporation, plus details of the upcoming AGM.
Anti-doping is an important part of all National Governing Body’s responsibility. British Fencing take a clear lead on many aspects, however, as the NGB here in Wales, there are some crucial actions that we ne need to take to ensure that all Welsh Fencers are aware of the responsibilities on them, and where information and support can be accessed.
