Victoria University of Wellington Swords Club: Trainings are Cancelled until Further NoticeHayden Andersen

Hi all

It is with a heavy heart that I have to announce that all trainings are cancelled until further notice. Due to the fact that we lend gear and train in a relatively enclosed space, I can't in good conscience have trainings go ahead with the potential of spreading the virus further. We will monitor the situatuion closely, and as soon as we are able to resume trainings I can guarantee that we will jump at the opportunity. Look after yourselves and those close to you, and I look forward to seeing you all once we feel it is safe to begin fencing again.

Yours in fencing

Club President

Website updates

Pisting Around: What we have been working onJezza Peters

Vinny and I have been working on this website for a little while. This article is to advise what the intention is, and where we are at with it.

Purpose
The intention of this website, is to enable fencers, clubs, regions, and coaches to record all events and fencing. This then enables the fencer and/or coach to write notes on the bout record to go over/for next time. With all of this data, clubs can choose to do rankings, fencers can check winning rate against a specific fencer based on previous bouts against them.
The other side is the organisation side. We are looking at putting in a calendar system, which enables clubs, regions etc to set up calendar events/series of events (eg for U20's looking to be selected for international events, what competitions they have to enter). With the ability to enter fencing results, we will be able to run full competitions online (with live results on line).
