21st March 2017
We are delighted to announce that the British Fencing Awards Dinner will be held in July 2017, alongside the Cadet and Junior National Championships. Following from last year’s success the awards offer the opportunity to recognize some of the best clubs, coaches, fencers and volunteers around the country for their contribution to fencing.
The Awards Dinner will be held on Saturday 1st July 2017 at the East Midlands Conference Centre at The University of Nottingham.
Georgina Usher, British Fencing CEO said, ‘We introduced the BF Awards as a means for the community to come together and recognize all the fantastic work being done across our sport. Running as part of the Cadet and Junior Nationals, this event will also give us a chance to fundraise for the young fencers that compete internationally for Great Britain.”
Nominations are now open. Awards will be nominated by members. Other than the Personality of the Year (which is voted on by the members of British Fencing) judging will be done by an independent panel including representatives of Sport England and BUCS. Full details of the awards categories, the awards criteria and how to submit nominations can be found here.
Tickets start from £40 for adults and £30 for under-18s and will be available from Monday 27th March from Sport80.com.
If you are interested in sponsoring an award or donating a prize in the raffle please contact Amy Grant.
