Fencers around the world will celebrate World Fencing Day on September 11th, 2021. Here are some of the ways you and your club can be involved!
The FIE has announced the date for World Fencing Day 2021: Saturday, September 11. Here is their announcement about the day:
“The day celebrates all those in fencing who make up the essence of the sport. The global “Nation of Fencing” embraces everyone, no matter what a person’s role may be—volunteer, fan, athlete, parent, nominated or elected official, administrator, official, coach or referee—each is important.
“Every individual or group who gives to fencing is appreciated and valued and is an ambassador for the sport, representing and conveying a positive message about fencing to the world.
“Each “citizen” of the Nation of Fencing can claim our sport as part of their personal identity, as a “nationality” and as a banner.
“We are Fencing” reflects how inclusive and global our sport is, without barriers or borders, and the last year has been a testament to the tremendous unification and friendship of world fencing.
“World Fencing Day 2021 also represents a new era of Olympic fencing, with a full complement of 12 gold-medal events for the first time in history. The newest Olympic champions will have the opportunity to share their experiences with newcomers and celebrate the Nation of Fencing’s global reach as a fun, spirited and compelling sport for all people.”
