Once again the School Games National Finals 2016, which will be hosted at Loughborough University in the English East Midlands from the 1st – 4th September, will not be fully funded by Sport NI. Sport NI are again cutting their contribution by 50%. As per last year this will leave a £3500 shortfall which will need to be filled. NI Fencing cannot offer any financial support for the School Games competition. Consequently, any fencer selected will be required to make a £150 contribution towards their participation in the UKSG upon confirmation of attendance.
