Date changes made to BF GBR calendar selection points due to cancelled international events and allowing for the festive break.
BF has reviewed the GBR calendar for international competitions across all ages and their respective selection points. In conjunction with the ADP, selectors and the points coordinators, the dates have been adjusted as some events that were originally scheduled during this period have been cancelled or postponed.
The changes to the calendar are set out below:
|Sabre Events||Old date||New Date|
|EFC Cadet (Bucharest)||Tuesday, December 21, 2021||10th December 2021|
|FIE JWC (Plovdiv)||Tuesday, December 28, 2021||14th December 2021|
|FIE JWC (Segovia)||Tuesday, December 14, 2021||10th December 2021|
|Foil Events||Old date||New Date|
|EFC Cadet (Roma)||Tuesday, December 21, 2021||14 December 2021|
|EFC Cadet (Poznań)||Tuesday, December 28, 2021||14 December 2021|
|FIE JWC (Zagreb)||Tuesday, December 21, 2021||13 December 2021|
|Grand Prix (Torino)||Monday, December 27, 2021||20 December 2021|
|FIE JWC (Aix-en-Provence)||Tuesday, December 14, 2021||13 December 2021|
|EFC Cadet (Satu Mare)||Tuesday, January 4, 2022||10 January 2022|
|Epee Events||Old date||New Date|
|EFC Cadet (Thessaloniki)||Tuesday, December 14, 2021||10th December 2021|
|EFC Cadet (Krakow)||Tuesday, January 4, 2022||10 January 2022|
|FIE JWC (Belgrade)||Tuesday, December 28, 2021||10th December 2021|
These changes will not prejudice any athletes as there were no scheduled ranking events taking place that would impact selections but the Cadet ‘A’ event in Manchester would now become a selection event for Krakow (Epee) and Satu Mare (Foil). It would however allow more time for BF to process the selections and athletes to organise for the trips and allow for the reduced resources during the Christmas break.
