Welcome to the Welsh Fencing website. This site is designed to provide all the information you need about Fencing in Wales.
The Youth Epee event scheduled for this Sunday 2nd March has been postponed due to lack of entries.
If the decision is made to cancel the event entirely, all entry fees will be refunded.
David Rees, WF Chairman and Peter Stewart will be in North Wales on Friday 7th and Sat 8th March. We are hoping to meet as many of the local fencers as possible, and would ask your help in passing this information on to one and all. It is an ideal opportunity to discuss common issues, Welsh Fencing, and to informally address any questions that are specific to your area.
Well done to Scott Hamilton (Howardian), on his impressive win in this, the 25th O'Sullivan Cup.
This was another well attended event, with the entry list filling up quickly, and closing the week before. Well attended too, by wives, friends, and parents of the fencers - with fencers from as far afield as France, Slovakia, and Hongkong !

Congratulation to George Morris, GB Cadet Men's Epee Champion, 2014.
Winning only two of his five first round matches, Morris started slowly and was only ranked 34th for the knockout stages. By the time the elimination fights began, George had clearly sorted himself out, . He knocked out Theo Edwards (15-11) in the round of 32 and other than a close victory, 15-14, over Owen Jordan (Frisby Fencers) in the round of eight, was untroubled on his way to the gold medal match.
The title fight began in typical cagey fashion but Morris started better than his opponent, picking off the first two hits. Hughes settled though and there was only one point in it (8-7 to Morris) at the first break. Morris began the second period much the same as he had the first by establishing a two-hit lead (10-8). This gave him breathing space and he opened the distance up making it more difficult for his opponent to hit him. This tactic paid off and by the second break he was 14-9 up and very much in control. He made the winning hit, a second intention parry riposte to the high line, early in the third period to take the title, 15-9.
