Swiss Fencing and the International Fencing Federation (FIE) are pleased to invite you to Lausanne on 9 September 2017 on the occasion of the first World Fencing Day on the theme of solidarity.
This day will take place in parallel with the first U17/U20 selection competition organised by CAL (Lausanne Circle of Arms) in the presence of our Swiss fencers, ambassadors for the event. During the day, a collection of fencing equipment will be made specially available in collaboration with the FIE.
At the end of the competition, your donations will be distributed in order to help a country with its development through sport. In the coming days, the FIE will allocate our federation one of the five solidarity projects suggested to athletes during the 2017 World Championships in Leipzig.
Swiss Fencing is delighted at the involvement and cooperation of the FIE in this worldwide event, which will take place in the city where the FIE has its headquarters.
We will soon be sending you the necessary details regarding the type and quality of equipment (second-hand) and the required safety standards.
We are very pleased to welcome you and let you experience this day of solidarity in the world of fencing, in the presence of our Swiss ambassadors and representatives of the FIE.
In the meantime, hoping to find you both numerous and generous on 9 September, we wish you all the best for the rest of the summer.
NB: Don’t forget to sort out and put aside any fencing equipment you no longer need. We need your help!
