Newham Swords hosted their first Team Foil event last weekend

Newham Swords held its first ever LPJS Team Event over the 7th and 8th November. The day was a huge success and thoroughly enjoyed by all.

37  Under 15, U13 and U11 teams fought for medals together with an U9 competition on the Sunday.

Team events have a special cameraderie about them and these pictures capture some of the moments from the Sunday event. Many of the U9s were competing for the first time and some of the parents had this to say.

I attended your venue for the fencing tournament this weekend with my daughter, she was in the Under 9 category. I felt that I should email to say how impressed I was with the day. Your team of officials where great, friendly and approachable.
I was also happy that you observed the 2 minute silence for Remembrance Sunday.
We enjoyed our day. Thank you.

Thank you so so much for running around yesterday to help kit out my daughter, Lola, for the U9s competition. It was our first competition and despite me not doing my homework properly about what was required, she kept a cool head, you got her sorted and she loved the event.

You had a lot to organise and yet still managed to go home for some breeches, for someone you didn’t even know! Thank you!

We look forward to seeing you again
