Welsh Fencing are pleased to announce the following team selections for the Senior Winton Cup being held in Nottingham, over the weekend of 9th/10th July.
For this event, we have selected our Senior Commonwealth Team in order to give them quality time together on-piste. We only select teams of four fencers, so where our Commonwealth team is of five fencers, we have selected four at random. The fifth will be held as reserve in the event one of the four declines the invitation.
This is the 70th anniversary of the event, and the organisers are currently looking at a buffet and bar on campus that would occur on the evening of the 9th shortly after fencing finishes for the day. Full details will be released when we have them, but we have been asked to confirm our team's interest in such a celebratory meal. Once the team has been finalised, we will qauge interest using teamo.
The team has been nominated & accepted over teamo.
To help support fencers to compete clean, understand their rights and responsibilities, and recognise the risks, British Fencing are now putting on a series of sessions every 2 months designed for all competitive fencers. These will be delivered over Zoom, and last for 90 minutes.
Would all registered Welsh Coaches ensure that the "Coach Clean" course has been completed and that certificates of completion are attached to profiles on Sports80. There is no cost for the course. It is valid for a period of two years.
Would all athletes selected for the Commonwealth Fencing Championships who have not yet completed the BF Commonwealth Teams Clean Sport Education register for the 4th July 2022 online course, there is no cost to the course.
