This website has been designed so that you can customise the home page by picking and choosing the links which are important to you on the home page and remove those which are not relevant for you. For further information click on "How does it work" below.
Our new website allows you to access your membership profile. To do this YOU MUST FIRST REGISTER WITH THE SITE BY CLICKING HERE.
If you have not already registered you will need to go through the following easy steps:
1. Click here to register for the site. You only need to do this once.
2. You will then be asked to provide the following details:
DOB: (eg 02/05/1970)
Postcode: (eg = W10 2ST)
Once you have put in the details your profile will appear on screen.
Type in your own password and click proceed.
You are now registered for the site and can access your profile and renew whenever you wish.
The home page is set out in three key sections:
Firstly the toolbar at the top gives menu options for our most important areas or those which are visited the most – these may change over time, dependent on the information you want.
Secondly, there is a News and Notices section, including the top 5 stories, announcements or bulletins from British Fencing and England Fencing. We also have a scrolling section which will give details of important notices which we need to make you aware of, such as a competition being cancelled or a rule change.
3. Direct link "Widgets"
The bottom section is all yours. We have set up a range of boxes or "widgets" which link to areas of the website which are like Apps you may find on your phone. You can select the ones which are relevant to you (for example: Junior Men's Epee Rankings, Coaching or Twitter feeds) and get rid of the ones that you don't want. You can add as many of them as you like, although a few of them will remain static (such as the sign in widget).
If you can’t find a widget for something you want then let us know and we can easily add them. We have put a range of widgets on the site to start off with and will be developing more with you. These can be linked to internal pages or external websites.
Yes you can. The first time you visit the site, you will need to REGISTER to use it and then you will be able to sign in using the box on the home page whenever you wish and at any computer. This will give you access to your membership profile which will allow us to ensure our details on you are up to date. No more incorrect address details or inaccurate coaching qualifications – you see what we see. As our database is now directly linked to the website we will be phasing out membership cards to save on unnecessary printing and postage costs and doing our bit to be more environmentally friendly. Don’t worry; you will still be able to print off proof of membership if needed, although all of our British and England Fencing competitions will now be entered online, through the website.
No, British Fencing is aware of the environmental impact of membership cards and will issue these electronically. However, you can download it. You will receive a proof of membership e-mail which can be printed if required,
All British Fencing competitions are moving to an online system which will not require a card to enter.
We have a search function for the website which can be found on the top menu bar, however if you still cannot find something, please contact us at email@example.com or 0208 742 3032. It may be, of course, that we don’t have everything on the site that we need, or you want, in which case we will make sure we put it up – this is your website and we want you to help us define the content. Some content is being developed, for example the rankings only allow us to have a feed to some rankings because of the way they are compiled at the moment.

British Fencing and England Fencing have come together to produce this website which aims to allow us to communicate much more easily and clearly to you. It should also enable you to communicate much better with us, in terms of questions, feedback or search for information. If it doesn't, please let us know by contacting us or using the feedback widget on the home page. This site has been designed to give you flexibility to control your site and give you the control to amend the way your homepage looks and identify what information is important to you. There will be a growing number of boxes or “widgets” which will have links to internal pages on our site and also external links to sites such as our Facebook or Twitter sites and sites like the Fencing Forum.
We hope that this website will help us to in our goal of developing one united sport: all fencing organisations working as one. This is one website for British and England Fencing, allowing more information on starting, staying and succeeding in fencing. British Fencing is the National Governing Body (NGB) for the Olympic sport of Fencing in the British Isles (excluding the Republic of Ireland) and England Fencing is the NGB for England.
They have been invited to be involved, but have opted to keep their own websites for the time being. It is possible that they will in the future.
