2017 Highland Open - Results and full report

Elgin High School was the venue for the UK’s most northerly open fencing tournament when over 80 competitors from places as far afield as Shetland and London competed for the Highland Open Men’s, Women’s Foil, Epee and Sabre titles.

Safety Notice - Masks

Following an incident at the British Fencing Junior and Cadet Championships, please can all referees, competition organisers, coaches and officials pay careful attention to the following:

1. Referees should give a yellow card if a fencer comes on the piste wearing a mask that is not safely secured even if it has not fallen off. (This is a preventative measure)

2. A yellow card should be given whenever a mask falls off during a fight.

Coach Education Recognition of Prior Learning

Application can be made by fencing coaches to Scottish Fencing (SF) for consideration and recognition of prior learning, qualifications and experience which may be considered by Scottish Fencing to be at least the equivalent of qualifications within Scottish Fencing’s Coach Development Programme (SFCDP).
