GB LEAGUE – CLUB ORGANISER INFORMATION

Hosting a GB League fixture is as simple as running a normal competitive fencing club session. The format for the GB League has been designed to be a simple addition that fits in with what we know clubs do really well already. With no formal requirements for piste layout, referees and timed bouts, it can be adapted to suit the needs of any club.

Registering a GB League Fixture is easy, all you need to do is tell us when you would like to run your fixture, what format you are doing (5 Hit or 15 Hit) and which weapon. From there, BF will create the fixture and provide you with an entry link so participants can sign up easily.

The fixtures are run through the Playwaze platform in the GB League community, clubs don’t need to do anything on their own Playwaze club profiles, as explained below, BF takes care of everything and there is no cost to clubs or participants.

Running a Fixture:

  1. Check everyone has a BF Recreational level membership and a free Playwaze profile (profiles are created at the moment of sign up to the fixture).
  2. The simplest way to run a fixture is to print out/draw/put on a whiteboard a blank poule unique (BF have assets you can use or design your own). Have participants record their scores (clearly!) and send a screenshot or photo to BF and they can upload the results for you. A designated GB League Leader can also do this themselves – just get BF to update your access level on Playwaze.
  3. Watch the points build up!

There is a lot of flexibility within running a fixture, it has been designed as such to work with your regular club sessions. BF are always on hand to help with technical questions or provide support.
