COVID-19 Events Update

Following on from our communication yesterday from the Chief Executive here, British Fencing has made the following decisions with regards to events:

  • 2020 Senior National Championships – Postponed until later in the year
  • 2020 British Youth Championships and GB Cup – Postponed until later in the year
  • BRCs – Cancelled until mid-August 2020

What next?


We are already in the process of confirming new dates. We are working closely with stakeholders to ensure the best possible outcome for all involved.

Over the coming days and weeks, we will update the community as and when we have confirmed information. We aim to give you as much time as possible to make arrangements to be able to attend.

We are aware that changes made to the FIE calendar may affect scheduling later in the year. Please continue to check our website and updates for the latest information.

BRC organisers have already been informed of the decision by email. We feel that this decision reduces the pressure on all participants (athletes, coaches, supporters and volunteers) to attend ranking events, in light of an ever-changing situation that is already putting pressure on all of us.

All athletes who have qualified through RQEs (Regional Qualifying Events) for the BYCs and GB Cup will be carried over to the new date(s) of the competitions.

We appreciate your continued support and patience. The team at BF are working hard to find the best solution for the whole community and we’re looking forward to resuming the season later in the year.

During this time the health and wellbeing of our community is of the utmost importance – please continue to follow the official guidance and look after yourself and each other.
