General Information

The team hotel will be http://www.eurofencingns2018.com/index.php/en/hotel/hotel-aleksandar-4-stars


  • The Chef de Mission for the event will be Johnny Davis.
  • Athletes will be expected to stay at the nominated official hotel.  Based on the information we have, athletes should initially budget for around £35-40 per person per night.
  • As a minimum athletes will be expected to check-in to the hotel two nights before they compete and leave the day after their last event.
  • Athletes should book and pay for their own flights. 
  • If you want to use official transfers we will ask you to provide flight details by a deadline date (tbc).
  • Entry fees are 130 euros per individual event and 300 euros per team events.
  • Personal Coaches wishing to join the squad must seek authorisation in advance by emailing [email protected]


British Fencing will cover the costs of the Chef de Mission.

In addition the following monies have been pledged so far:

  • Foil – MF team entry fee (BF Charity). Up to £500 to cover the cost of 1 foil coach (BF Charity)
  • Sabre – MS team entry fee (Patron).  Up to £1000 to cover the cost of 1 sabre coach (£500 BF Charity, £500 Sabre Fund)
  • Epee – WE & ME team entry fees (Epee Club).  Up to £1000 to cover the cost of 1 epee coach (Epee Club)

BF will be trying to raise additional money to cover all the team entry fees and send a coach in each of the three weapons. Over and above that all monies raised will be split between the athletes competing.

We have set up a page to collect donations for the event on the BF Charity website here:


You can either choose to share that page or set up your own fundraising pages which links to that page. You may be able to use your fundraising pages to target donations to particular weapons if you like. The advantage of collecting donations through the BF Charity is that they will be eligible for gift aid.
