From September 2014, British Fencing will be running its Junior International trips in partnership with Sport:80. The Sport:80 team has enjoyed a relationship with British Fencing since 2006 having provided travel, transport and accommodation services to a number of major fencing events. Additionally they have supported occasional Junior and Cadet trips for the past 5 years. Working with Team Managers Sport:80 shall be taking over the planning and delivery of our trips. This will include the travel, transport and accommodation elements of our trips as well as managing officials' expenses and administering payments on behalf of British Fencing.
This is an exciting first step in a partnership that will ultimately streamline the processes for managing trips and create an improved experience for everyone involved. Processes will evolve over time and the existing trip system will be replaced to improve administration and delivery of trips.
