Commonwealth Selection Process

Commonwealth Selection Process

Due to the difficulties with the extraordinary circumstances over the last two years and the limited competitions available to fencers GUE was left in a challenging position regarding the selection process. In order to make the selection process fair for all fencers GUE circulated those fencers that expressed an interest in competing with a standardised series of questions looking at past experience, current activity and commitment. GUE then assessed the responses based on the answers to those questions.

To the extent that there are still openings in any particular discipline and any fencer is interested in representing Guernsey then those individuals should get in contact with GUE.

Commonwealth Selection Appeals

Any fencer who has not been selected for a Commonwealth event, and who wishes to appeal against such a decision, must notify the GUE in writing of his/her intention to lodge such an appeal within 7 days of the selections for the relevant event being published on the GUE LBG web site.

Appeals will only be considered on the basis of inaccuracy in facts used to make selection(s) for the relevant event, or on the basis that the Selection Committee has failed to take relevant facts into account in making its selection decisions.

The GUE will convene an Appeals Committee on the receipt of a Notice of Appeal. No appeal will be considered after 7 days of the selection being published.

The Appeals Committee shall consist of three GUE board members.

The Appeals Committee’s decision(s) will be final in all cases.
