The AFF are supportive of this wonderful worldwide event, and looking to create a tour for fencers who are interested in heading to Hong Kong to compete.
Your Tour Manager will be Davide Wheeler.
The Fencing competition will be held on Sunday 5th November and is open to everyone aged 18/+ regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, ethnicity, or even training level: GAMES FOR ALL.
This will not being run as an official AFF tour and the events will not carry ranking points. However, at this stage the AFF is seeking to understand the potential scope of participants in the tour. Once this is known, we will chat to participants about what support, if any would be appropriate for the tour and we will chat to participants about this well ahead of travel plans being locked in.
