Patches/Logos

It is your responsibility to ensure your kit has the correct logos/patches and your equipment meets FIE standards.

A summary of the latest rule changes can be found here.

As part of the terms of the Leon Paul sponsorship arrangement, all athletes competing are required to wear a Leon Paul logo. This should appear on the back arm. For foilists and epeeists the logo patch should be sewn onto the back arm ideally above the GBR logo. Sabreurs will need to have their lames printed directly by Leon Paul. This can be done at any event where Leon Paul have a printing service or at the Leon Paul shop. Alternatively, you can contact sales@leonpaul.com and they will send you patches to sew onto your lame jacket (you will need to specify the type of lame – eg lightweight).

Please note that NO logos of any description, other than the GBR national logo, should be on the breeches – the FIE rules changed in September 2019.

Please also note that the commemorative event patches should not be attached to the fencing jackets (or breeches) that you will be wearing at the event.

Authorised Personal Coaches

ALL coaches must abide by the relevant BF policies including – http://britishfencing.com/uploads/files/gbr_coaches_policy_v1.0[1].pdf and http://britishfencing.com/uploads/files/coaches_code_of_conduct.pdf.

Please Note: As there is a staff allocation that is less than the number of fencers attending we are unable to guarantee accreditation for all personal coaches. The personal coach allocation is split 50/50 between cadet and junior.

The applications for accreditations of personal coaches for the cadets have exceeded the available applications. Accreditations will be awarded based on

  1. Coaches are up to date on the coach register
  2. If the fencers’ personal coaches has met the qualification standard for selection
  3. Coaches have consistently demonstrated suitable coaching behaviours and are not currently being investigated.
  4. Fencer selection place 1-4
