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.
