I'm not sure why I am biting and I'm sure I will regret it later.
This is a Women's Sabre competition, that by virtue of its nature is only open to women. The organisers have a choice - they could...
I am far from being a legal expert, but this incentive appears to have been offered in an attempt to ensure that the Women's Sabre event (open only to Women) goes ahead and with good numbers. If you...
Junior and Cadet rankings updated already!!!
Really good comp too in Kidderminster for Épée. All metal pistes, with independent refereeing. Nice atmosphere as usual and some interesting results to shake things up a bit.
BBC Breakfast News have moved up there so it must have something going for it :)
To be fair our last épée visit was to the Lancashire Cricket Club, so not really Manchester I guess.
You guys need to get out more. Off to Kidderminster (again) for Épée event three, before heading back inside the M25. Mustn't forget our trip to Gateshead in March to kick off the 2015/16 season. :)...
So nice of the foilists to join the rest of the junior fencing community. The junior épée season has almost finished already, with event three this weekend :) Have a great time in London.
News item listed by BF yesterday:
Initially I thought that this funding / support would be heading towards our Talent athletes but on...
You can try Radcliffe Sword club based in Clifton. They have a website and Facebook page and are a three weapon club. In my experience Nottingham is very foil centric, and the top East Mids cadets...
A bit more info from BF on this idea. Has to be good publicity. Though based on this week, an indoor iconic building feels preferable!!!
The news item from BF last week made it clear that the new six weapon British U23 Championships at the LP centre were all junior nominated:
If certainly looks like an extra event, however as it's after selection for the Worlds will apply to the rolling ranking into next season rather than affecting this one (not that 2014/15 has started...
Details of the U23 comps now available:
All taking place at the LP Centre, and nominated for Junior Ranking points too.
This looks interesting:
Could be a really good early season publicity idea.
Good to hear.
Folk were chatting about the new design at the Norfolk Open Épée, probably due to around 90% of fencers having contour fit masks. No issue about the additional safety, but more...
Unsurprisingly the new back strap is required for European Cadet / Junior Circuit comps:
Which I presume will include Manchester Cadet...
Thanks. I did wonder why different weekends, but it's been an odd season already ... :)
Just spotted that we have U23 British Championships on the calendar next March. 8th for Sabre, 14th for Épée, and 21st for Foil. Must have missed these being announced.
Annoyingly the épée event...
Don't forget folks, cadets and juniors need to submit their competition and training plans AND their fitness test scores by 31st July this year, not August as per last year.
There is a link on...
It's really helpful to see the changes highlighted. For juniors it certainly clarifies the definition of a BSC, so not just U20 events but nominated senior events too. This was probably needed to...
For anyone who has missed it both the cadet and junior selection schemes have been updated a couple of weeks ago. The cadet scheme has changed so that the first cadet only event is now seeded using...
How do you enter online? Or is this a link still to come? If so can you post when it's available?
Just checked myself and seems to be dead at the moment.
