It is with regret that we must announce that, due to health issues, Mark Rance has temporarily stepped down from his role as President of Fencing NZ, effective immediately.

The Board of Fencing NZ wishes Mark a speedy recovery and looks forward to welcoming him back as soon as conceivably possible.

With a busy year ahead leading into the Commonwealth Fencing Championships, the Board has appointed David Elder to the role of Acting President of Fencing NZ until Mark returns, or until the Fencing NZ AGM in March 2022.

Please do everything you can to assist him.

We know that our whole community will be saddened to hear Mark’s news, but ask that you allow him and his family privacy in this difficult time.
