2019 Challenge Wratislavia - thank you

Thank you to everyone who contributed to the consultation process For Challenge Wratislavia 2019. It was fantastic to hear from so many within our fencing community and for me it feels like the final process is a real community effort.

2019 Challenge Wratislavia - proposals

Competing at Challenge Wratislavia has been a highlight for many of our younger fencers. It is an inspirational tournament. It is challenging but not beyond many of our younger fencers which makes it an ideal first step to competing outside of the UK.

Friendships made on this trip are a legacy that bonds future Scottish Fencing teams and it is great to see how young people develop during the trip.

It is a fantastic event but over the years it has grown beyond the capacity for Scottish Fencing to manage with the resources available. And this is why we are conducting a review.
