Age Group Championships


Statement: Corona virus (COVID-19) – BVF Age Groups 28-29 March, Manchester Fencing Centre

The BVF committee has, over the last week, been carefully considering the potential risks and implications of running the BVF Age Groups at the Manchester Fencing Centre, 28-29 March, and following much debate by email and phone has decided to postpone the event.

It is our aim to reschedule possibly for early September, but this will, of course depend on what happens in the next few months with the COVID-19 situation.

This was not an easy decision; we looked at all aspects including Selection for the European Team Championships and the World Championships.

The Selectors will formulate selection criteria for the European Teams. This will be ratified by BVF committee then we will inform membership.

Selection for the World Championships will be considered when we are in a position of knowing whether we can reschedule the Age Groups.

We understand that some of you might not agree with the committee’s decision and may be disappointed, but please rest assured that it is a decision that has been undertaken with a great deal of consideration and consultation.
