BF announce the cancellation of the 2021 British Schools Championships, originally scheduled for March 2021.
Due to the impact of ongoing restrictions across the UK, the British Schools Championships, scheduled for 6-7th March 2021 have been cancelled.
We are in continual consultation with our community and in reaching this decision we have taken into account the feedback that we have received from those coaches and clubs who have been working hard to restart fencing in school environments.
Once schools reopen and inter-school sport resumes we will reach out to teachers and coaches of participating schools to discuss our plans to grow and develop the event for the 2021-2022 season and beyond.
We appreciate that this will be disappointing news, however our focus now is on supporting the safe resumption of fencing in schools and clubs.
We are also taking this opportunity to introduce the sport of fencing to more schools through initiatives such as BF’s CPD course designed for teachers who are interested in exploring and introducing the fun of fencing to their school. In time we hope to see many more schools participate in these Championships from across the UK.
