There is a significant amount of information currently being shared on social media particularly with regards to international competitions. And we fully expect to receive more government guidance over the coming days and weeks which may impact our domestic competitions. During this time we ask all members to keep referring back to our dedicated page which we will keep updated with the information that we have been able to verify and our advice and guidance in relation to that.
As a small team we are working hard in an ever changing environment and we appreciate your support and patience at this time. Some of our normal response times may increase as a result of the additional workload that the situation has created. Please do bear with us.
Finally, whilst we understand that it is a stressful time for all and emotions can run high we will be implementing a zero tolerance approach to any abuse or harassment of our staff or volunteers.

“Due to the current Covid-19 situation ..It was decided to postpone:
As a consequence, the zonal qualifying events for the OG must also be postponed since the qualifying competitions of the FIE calendar must take place beforehand.
We are in constant contact with the IOC, which is fully informed of our situation. We are requesting an extension of the qualification period for fencing.”
