Welcome to the Welsh Fencing website. This site is designed to provide all the information you need about Fencing in Wales.
British Fencing publishes once a month, in the first week of the month, a list of BFA Coaches together with their relevant weapon qualifications.
The list can be found here:

As the Governing Body, we often have to contact Members of Welsh Fencing. Unfortunately, we regularly find that the membership details on the BFA membership database are incorrect and out-of-date. This particularly applies to email addresses and contact phone numbers.
Please could Club Secretaries and Members ensure that the data lodged with British Fencing is current and accurate. There is online access to the data; failing that, an email to BFA Head Office can ensure that this data is kept up-to-date.
Not to be outdone, the Veterans are also in the medals:
Well done to all of you!
Wales had it's most successful Senior Commonwealth Championships in many years by bringing home 5 medals, to be placed 4th in the overall medal table.
Overall, a fabulous set of results, with many other notable results throughout the week. A more detailed report will be put online, once we have all recovered!
Carl added the following:
"I believe the Commonwealths (even without women's foil!) were Wales' most successful ever- well, in 64 years of Commonwealth competition - in terms of medals, even including the Commonwealth Games years. KK'S gold is only Wales' 3rd ever (1 in 2010, 1 in 2006) and it's only the 2nd time Wales have won 5 medals, the other being 1998."
