British Veterans Fencing is proud to welcome you to the European Veterans Fencing Team Championships 2016, at Medway Park, Gillingham. Great Britain hosted the very first European Championships in Loughborough in 1991, organised by Henry de Silva, which attracted 85 entries. Since then European Veterans Fencing has grown and evolved into the very successful organisation that it is today with members from more than 30 European countries.

BVF is honoured that the 25th European Championships are being held in Great Britain, the country where it all started, and hopes that you enjoy the event.


Good fencing all teams!


Gillian Aghajan

Chairman, British Veterans Fencing


As President of British Fencing I would like to extend a warm welcome to all visiting teams, and I hope that every participant has an enjoyable and worthwhile experience here in Medway Park. Hard-fought matches in a spirit of friendship and fair play have always been the hallmark of veteran fencing events, so I am sure that spectators and supporters will share this enjoyable experience.

On behalf of British Fencing I would like to thank all those involved in staging this tournament, including sponsors, organisers, referees, armourers and the all-important volunteers. This event would not be possible without their dedication and commitment.


Wish the best of luck to all competitors and I look forward to watching a top class competition.


Hilary Philbin

President, British Fencing
