Welcome to the Welsh Fencing website. This site is designed to provide all the information you need about Fencing in Wales.
The Board established this mechanism in 2012, in order to ensure they were aware of all Welsh fencers of representative standard or potential. We are comfortable that this objective has been achieved, and now feel that it is time for this mechanism to evolve. The list will therefore be reviewed and replaced, and will be based on the various Ranking Lists maintained and published by BFA, across all age groups of Cadet, Junior and Senior. The current lists will not be updated further. Please watch out for the revised lists - they will be published once a set of inclusion criteria have been defined.
The following are those who have responded to the WF Questionnaire, sent to competitors, club coaches and published on the WF webpage:Read more

Welsh Fencing have arranged for the British Fencing Equality and Safeguarding Manager, Liz Behnke, to run two courses for the Welfare Officers in Welsh Clubs.

All Coaches are required to have a certificate confirming that a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS formerly CRB) check has been carried out. The certificate is valid for three years.
Across Welsh Fencing there are a number of members holding out-of-date certificates. This could be for a number of reasons, such as they are no longer involved in Coaching, - or have simply forgotten to renew their certificate.
a smorgasbord of culture
ice-cream on the beach
an audience of seagulls
there’s medals within reach
Largs mid November
isn’t Glasgow in July
and never on my list of things
to do before I die
they say it had a Woolworth’s
but now’s no time to tarry
from end to end like lightning
and don’t forget to parry
Congratulations to the following fencers who have been selected to represent Wales at the forthcoming Sainsbury's 2014 School Games, to be held at the Wright Robinson Sports College in Manchester, from the 4th to 7th September.
