European Veteran Individual Championships – CANCELLED

Update 1 December 2020

With little surprise but great sadness, I have to announce that the European Fencing Championships scheduled for Thionville in May are now cancelled.

Our French colleagues responsible for the event were trying very hard to deliver this event for us and had prepared comprehensive plans to enable a safe competition environment. Unfortunately, the local authorities are more cautious and have indicated that they cannot support our event at this time. This has an impact on the potential sponsors, venues and hotels that we simply cannot overcome.

Under these circumstances we agreed that we would offer the first refusal for 2023 to Thionville and they have confirmed that they will host the Individual Championships in May 2023. All other candidatures will be extended to later dates subject to the organisers being willing to maintain their applications. I want to thank all the team at Thionville for trying so hard and remaining so positive.

We hope to bring you news of some opportunities to participate in smaller Circuit Competitions during the first half of 2021 – we will update you as soon as we have something to share.

In the meantime, please have the best Christmas you can, stay safe and we sincerely hope that we can look forward to Hamburg together in 2022.

Német, veterán párbajtőr edzőtábor – Pulheim – 2020.11.07-08.  – Kiírás / Details -

Liebe Fechterinnen und Fechter,

anbei die Einladung zu einem Veteranenlehrgang im Damen- und Herren-Degen des Deutschen Fechterbundes in unserer Fechthalle in Pulheim. Wegen der abgesagten NRW-Veteranenmeisterschaften am 7./8. November, haben wir uns nach Absprache mit Harald Lüders  entschlossen, wenigstens mal wieder ein Treffen der Veteranenfechterinnen und -fechtern zu organisieren, die sich nun fast ein Jahr nicht mehr gesehen haben durch Absetzen sämtlicher Veteranenturniere in 2020. Wer also Lust zu einem zwanglosen Trainings-Wochenende mit beschriebenem Ablauf in Pulheim am 7.-8.11.20 hat, melde sich bitte über das Ophardt-System an.

Über ein Wiedersehen freuen sich die Pulheimer Veteranen/innen.

Mit sportlichen Grüßen,

Jürgen Scholz -)——-

Dear fencing friends:

With great sadness, the AEVE (Spanish Association of Fencing Veterans) cancels the celebration of the II City of Madrid Cup (EVC – Sable) scheduled for the weekend of November 14th – 15th.

We think that we have to be carefull due to the current situation with covid-19 and the first objective has to be to ensure the health of the veteran community.

We will work hard and with great desire to be able to celebrate this competition together in November 2021 and enjoy the sport that unites us.

Take  care of yourselves and see you on the pistes.

We would appreciate if this meassage could be read by any affected fencer and their respective federations and associations due to this circustances.

Kind regards.




Luitpold_München_logoDear fencers,
due to the situation of Convid19 in Munich and almost all european countries we decided not to hold the EVC in Dec.2020.
We are very sad to cancel our “Max Geuter Memoriam” but we hope to have the opportunity to organize it in 2021!
I hope to see you soon in a fencing hall with all our veteran fencers and friends without influences of Convid19!!
Best regards and stay healthy!

Turku_logo Dear all,

I am sorry to inform you that for the safety of all involved persons the Finnish Fencing and Pentathlon Association has decided to cancel this year´s Turku Veteran Circuit event. The pandemic situation is unfortunately not getting better and travelling, especially for veterans, is not recommendable. Finland has still some boarders closed and a 14day quarantine for many European countries.
Let´s hope the year 2021 will look a lot different than this year, and we can welcome you to fence in Turku next year!
