Congratulations to all competitors who fought in the qualifiers. The selectors are inviting the following fencers to join the squad for Challenge Wratislavia this year. Please note this list is not in order. Also it does not include those fencers who finished high in the rankings but who have informed the selectors that they are unable to join the squad.
Congratulations to Salle Ossian who are Ladies Sabre British Team Champions for the second year running.
Well done Sarah-Jane Hampson, Kate Daykin and Lucy Higham!
This year’s Veterans 4 Nation match will be held in Ireland on Saturday 6th May near Dublin with all events being held on one day. Due to the increased cost of booking travel and the availability of hotels, the selection date for the Scottish Veterans for this event will be Monday 13th February. Rankings will be based on those at the end of January plus any adjustment for competitions between then and the 13th, e.g. the MOFT.
Final rankings are published below - if you have any questions or if there are any errors please contact us as soon as you notice them.
The selection process to choose the Squad that will represent Scotland at the 2017 Challenge Wratislavia is now underway and we hope to announce the decisions soon.
Should any fencer want to be considered for selection in exceptional circumstances, please complete the ‘FIS Form’ located here link
Scottish Fencing recently heard the sad news that Elizabeth Wright passed away peacefully at home. Elizabeth was a major influence in coaching and the Schools committee for decades and with her husband Bob contributed so much to Scottish Fencing.
For anyone in the fencing community who wishes to attend her funeral and celebration of life this will take place on Monday 23 January at 4pm at Seafield Cemetery and Crematorium, Seafield Rd, Edinburgh, EH6 7LD.
Please check the lists below, these are the current rankings after 4 qualifying competitions. The next competition is the 22 January and the entry form is available below.
If any corrections are needed please email the office. The office is closed until the 5 January so we will process corrections as soon as we can in the New Year. Have a lovely festive break and we will see you in 2017!
I am sorry to announce that Roy Clarke has decided to step down as Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Scottish Fencing at the end of January 2017.
Scottish Fencing has gone through a significant transformation over recent years particularly in terms of how professional our organisation has become. A key part of this professionalisation has been the creation of the new CEO post. Roy took on this responsibility in 2014 and was formally appointed in 2015.
