Rajendra Sing Rana (Secretary General Fencing Association of India) RIP
It is with great sadness that we advise of the recent passing of Rajendra Singh who had been suffering from cancer.
Mr Singh was also the President of the Uttar Pradesh Fencing Association and a State Minister of the Government.
I am sure that all will join with the Executive of the CFF in passing on our condolences to his family and many friends and associates.
Fencing was included in the Commonwealth Games from 1950 (when the event was still known as the British Empire Games) through to 1970.
Since that time, as a Commonwealth Games Federation Recognised Sport, Commonwealth Fencing Open Championships have been held every four years, in the same year as the Commonwealth Games.
All of these events are overseen by the Commonwealth Fencing Federation.
