Urgent notice: NSWSFL Foil Team Premiership – SBHS v SAC matches moved to Saturday 22/05/2021

I was recently made aware this afternoon that SAC have conflicting scheduling with a Cadet camp on our original date of 19/06/2021 for the Foil Team Premiership fixture that would lead to insufficient fencers and forfeiture of team matches on that date.

As a result and in consultation with SAC, we are moving the SBHS vs SAC match to this Saturday 22/05/2021 so that we can complete our fixtures.

The SBHS vs SICR match is still going ahead on the 19/06/2021 and will be supplemented with friendlies with other League schools in the other match time slots on the day.

Details for SBHS v SAC Foil Team Premiership match this Saturday 22/05/2021:

Time: 9am start (Be there by 8:30am) – estimate time to finish 11:30am

Venue: SBHS COLA

Please stay tuned for updates and contact Mr Huynh if there are any issues or concerns.
