    I agree entirely that it is 'brilliant' that people want to fence.

    However, fencing as Cesh and many others including myself have suggested on many occasions is not a 'game'.
    It is a sport and if...

    Camden rates of charge for entry to individual event was Euros 20 [converted into sterling for British Fencers] and that was exactly the same as in case of Manchester.

    However, British Fencing are...

    I am not clear why sponsorship is a problem. As I have pointed out GLL have supported the tournament for many years. GLL have also sponsored Camden FC and I negotiated with them several years ago...

    I don't follow your argument.

    First you implied that the tournament should not include GLL in title and ask what they offer for privilege. I gave you the answer.

    Now you suggest that we should...

    I omitted to mention that the GLL Foundation fund a large number of grants to British Fencers who are located
    in boroughs and municipalities where they operate. These grants are handled now by...

    GLL have provided financial support to the Tournament for several years. In 2014 they offered the Copper Box
    without making a charge and I understand that they are offering a very favourable rate...

    It is not altogether correct that foreign teams have to bring referees or pay the fine imposed by EFC. Obviously
    Federations who send less than 4 fencers don't have to pay and tournament organisers...

    This is the dilemma. Personally I do think that the entry fees need to be raised to a realistic level rather than charge a levy, which applies exclusively to British Fencers. However, at the moment...

    There are a number of issues which most people associated with fencing need to understand.

    1. The entry fees at international tournaments do not remotely cover the costs. That applies to both...

    Much of what is written is fair comment, although I would add that the Leon Paul Centre is not suitable for national competitions. It is far too small for that purpose and in my assessment can only...

    The injury to Nuno has to be of real concern, because it is now the second such incident to have occurred with
    a British Fencer in less than 3 years. On both occasions they seem to have been...
