Fencing Mid-South is hosting one of the most important events in Fencing New Zealand’s calendar for 2011 – the NZ National Junior Championships.
This event is important for many reasons. It is being held in Christchurch and follows on from the National Secondary Schools Competition, these events are the first to be held in Christchurch since the disastrous earthquakes, well done to Fencing Mid-South for their recovery to full working order.
This event is important for our Juniors, the Under 20 athletes too, as attendance and performance, up to a point, will be part of the consideration for the selection of athletes for the Junior Commonwealth Fencing Championships 2012 being held in Jersey next February, should the fencer nominate.
We are very lucky at the moment to be blessed with some outstanding U20 fencers whom we need to encourage and help to develop the sport in New Zealand well into the 21st century. This will be an exciting event and I look forward to a thrilling Championship.
To all the competitors - Good luck and fence well!
Ken Claridge – President, FeNZ
