Further to our earlier announcement postponing the England Youth Championships this year, England Fencing has taken the decision to cancel the 2020 event. The England Youth Championships will return in June 2021.
Refunds for any entries made to the 2020 EYCs will be made in the coming days, we thank you in advance for your patience. All refunds will be automatic, there is no need to contact England Fencing.
We, of course, understand that this will be a disappointing outcome for the many young athletes who were looking forward to competing at the 2020 EYCs, especially for those for whom the 2020 event would have been their last opportunity to compete at the EYCs.
Therefore, as a gesture of goodwill to those who would otherwise miss out on their last opportunity to participate in the EYCs, the 2021 England Youth Championships will run with slightly modified age groups of Under-11, Under-13, and Under-16 to give the young athletes an opportunity to compete at a final EYCs. We plan for the age groups to return to their usual format of Under-11, Under-13, and Under-15 for the 2022 EYCs.
