2018 #ThisGirlFences - Lara and Fleur

#THISGIRLCAN Lara and Fleur's story

‘I’m a Woman’.. ‘Phenomenally.’. ‘Phenomenal woman’.. ‘That’s me’.

These lines, taken from the late Maya Angelou’s* poem Phenomenal Woman and, narrated by her, play over a video for the #thisgirlcan campaign (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BZoXyIxqFRc) which is encouraging girls and women to play sport, using “real” women role models.

2018 The Highland Open Fencing Tournament - Results

Elgin High School was the venue for the UK’s most northerly open fencing tournament last weekend (29 & 30 September) when over 80 competitors from places as far afield as Portland, Oregon, New York, Orkney and Cardiff competed for the Highland Open Men’s, Women’s Foil, Epee and Sabre titles.

It was the sixth time that the competition has been held in Elgin and the first time at the new Elgin High School.

2018 Youth 5 Nations, Cardiff

Scottish Fencing is hoping to send a squad of fencers to 2018 Youth 5 nations being held at the Cardiff Met University.

The dates are 1 and 2 September with individual championships on the Saturday and Team matches the next day.

Following the recent Cadet and Junior Commonwealth Championships we recognise that the same squad of fencers might not be able to afford another trip away so are considering opening this event to less experienced fencers who would welcome the opportunity to represent Scotland.

2018 CFC selection update

The documents below are the Men's and Women's Foil and Men's Sabre data which will be put to the selectors for the Commonwealth Championships in Canberra in November.  British Fencing has not published its July ranking lists so these are based on 11 months of our selection period.  We are not aware of any competitions in June which will have a material impact on the selection decisions.  An updated Women's Sabre is now posted below.

2018 Forging the Future

Here at Scottish Fencing we are moving into a new investment period with our majority funder sportscotland.

With this in mind, we felt this was an opportunity to think again about our long term goals.  The Board of Scottish Fencing formed a strategy sub-group under the leadership of Independent Director Gail Prince and the sub-group strategic recommendations for the next 6 years are enclosed here.
