Due to the fact that only two qualifying events have been able to take place in 2020, the selection rules for the Veterans World Championships now have an addendum to take into account this year's exceptional circumstances.

2020 Events – COVID-19

The BVF committee has been discussing the effects that COVID-19 is having on our sport.

Whilst none of us can foretell the future, we have looked at all aspects and have based our decisions on very careful consideration of information and potential risks.

It is very important to us that we keep membership informed.

We have made the following decisions:

  • The Age Groups for 2020 are cancelled
  • The Veterans Winton Cup for 2020 is cancelled
  • The BVF AGM, 26th September, is cancelled. The committee is considering options.
  • The Selectors will consider selection for the European Teams and the World Championships when confirmation is received that either of these events will be held.

    It is possible that neither of these events will take place.

These are troubling and uncertain times for all of us, but we hope that there are brighter times ahead.

We look forward to a fencing future in which we can share and make happy memories, as Vets have always done.

Keep safe and keep well.
