Important Notices: Adult Club and Competition changes

**The three Newham Challenge competitions for 2021 are now named the Newham Junior Closed Competition. It will be open only to fencers Registered or Living in the Eastern and London Regions and there will be no points or overall trophy. This is due to Covid19 regulations limiting entries and making the Challenge points system unworkable. The Junior Challenge will return in 2022, virus permitting. However, in good news, the U16 category has been reintroduced for this year.

The Adult Club will be moving to Wednesdays 8.00 to 9.30pm as Friday space is not available. The new day will give much more space, peace (!) and the mid-week day may appeal to more adults. The change will be kept under review.

We hope our regular competitors and adult members appreciate the reasons for these changes. See you soon! Linda and Pierre

Newham Swords – Corporate LiveWire Prestige Award

Newham Swords Fencing Club is very proud to announce that it has just been awarded the Corporate LiveWire Prestige Award for Fencing Club of the Year, for London and the South East.

Rocky Singh (Project Manager for the London and SE Prestige Awards) remarked that “the judges were impressed by the Club’s personal touch, consistency of reviews and community feel”, and that “the passion for what you do really comes across”.

Newham Swords would like to thank Rocky and his team for this Award.

Well done to the entire Newham Swords Family for this achievement, having also received British Fencing’s Performance Club of the Year and Young Athlete of the Year Awards for 2020/2021, earlier this year.

Pierre and I can’t wait to see you all again soon!

Newham Swords Cadet Training Day a Huge Success!

Well done to all the fencers who worked extremely hard at our Cadet Training Day, held at Sportsdock last Sunday.

The session was full with 30 fencers enrolled. A special mention also to our Newham Swords junior coaches, Teagan Williams-Stewart (reigning National Senior Women’s Foil Champion) and Emilija Lukaite (a former National U23 Women’s Foil Champion) who were fantastic with the kids! It was great to have these young female coaches on board.
