Competing is the best way to compare skills and for fencers to up their game. Learning from past losses and applying it for future success is a basic life skill.
This new series, run by the Newham Swords team over seen by Olympic fencers Linda Strachan and Pierre Harper, will encourage children to train consistently and measure their performance through the year and, being limited to 4 events, means there is no race to attend the maximum competitions available on the calendar.
With the winners of each competition taking home medals and trophies and the overall winners having their own trophies, children will have lasting memories of their achievements in competitions run to high standards but in a friendly supportive setting.
All competitions will take place at Sportsdock, London, which has excellent facilities and secure parking so that there is no trekking around the country to unfamiliar locations which are a challenge for parents and unsettling for children. Being in a familiar place will enable them to concentrate on the task at hand.
The competitions will take place in January, April, June and November for U14, U12, U10 age groups
Online entry will be available very soon! Dates of the first three in the series are on our Calendar
