As the National Governing Body for the Olympic Sport of Fencing, British Fencing is responsible for the Great Britain teams at senior, junior and cadet level and is behind the athletes, supporting and helping to drive such successes.

In particular, our World Class Programme (WCP) leads, manages and supports athlete’s development towards podium success at the World Championships and Olympic Games. In order to do this effectively we have to work with multiple parties to deliver a range of performance impacting sport science, sports medicine and technology services for the country’s elite and emerging fencers. To improve the training, preparation and performance of each fencer, the athletes, coaches and support staff all have to communicate and work effectively together on training programmes, feedback and game statistics.

To better coordinate this, we decided to look for a centralised system that would enable everyone to work together in a secure online environment. We selected Huddle due to its security accreditations and granular permissions structure as we’re a government agency that has to abide by strict data protection rules.

Using Huddle, we can now provide each fencing athlete with their objective performance data, including statistical and visual analysis feedback of the British fencers and their opposition. Performance analysis was a relatively unused discipline within British Fencing until we started using Huddle and now we can provide our athletes with better, more informed feedback to help improve performance.
