2023 Senior Winton Cup - Update

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.

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.
