Whether you're a recent recruit to the sport or a seasoned fencer; Welsh Veteran Fencing Association is delighted to welcome you to our growing ranks.
We are sure that you will have a very positive experience fencing for the Welsh Veterans in our annual Welsh Veterans Championships; competing for one of the places on the Welsh Veteran Regional or National Veteran Teams. Enjoying the banter between the regions during the exhausting, but exhilarating, two day regional annual Veterans Winton Cup event. Competing in the hard fought, but none-the-less friendly rivalry against the Scots, Irish and English Teams at the Annual Veterans Home Nations. Competing for Wales at the Celtic Challenge, as an individual and part of the team, which takes place every two years and at the Veterans Commonwealth Fencing Championships, as an individual and gaining a place in the team event, which also take place every two years. Many of our Welsh Veterans represent GBR at the World and European Fencing championships and are serious competitors on the Senior fencing circuit.
Fun, Friendship and Fencing, what more could you ask for.
We hope to welcome you into the growing ranks of the Welsh Veterans Fencing Association.
