The following is a statement just issued by the BFA
The FIE are introducing new timings for sabre for the 2016/17
season, with the new block-out time increasing to 170 milli-seconds
from 120 milli-seconds. Further information about the new timings
is available at http://britishfencing.com/news/latest-news/?n=1568
It is the intention that all domestic events should also operate
under the new timings for the 2016/17 season in line with the
FIE (from 1st September 2016 onwards) so we wanted to alert coaches
to this so they can put plans in place for the new season. You
should contact your equipment manufacturer to confirm how you
can go about getting your boxes updated to the new T2016 timings,
and what the timescales for this will be. An email has also been
sent to organisers of competitions involving sabre taking place
after 1st September.
