The European Fencing Confederation offers an U23 circuit and associated European Championships, open to fencers who are 22 or younger at January 1st in the middle of the season.

Each of the U23 events nominated as part of the EFC series is a senior open and typically attracts world-class fencers from the host nation. Fencers wishing to compete in an U23 tournament must qualify via the national rankings or via performance at nominated events. See our Selection Policy for full details. Qualified athletes will require an EFC licence and should check that their equipment is compliant with the safety regulations for U23 events.
