For the attention of all fencing clubs “British Fencing have been advised to carry out an audit of all registered clubs.
If the club does not have any British Fencing registered coaches or there is a concern that they do not otherwise meet safeguarding requirements they will be given a period of time to rectify the position.
If the club does not meet that deadline the club will be removed from the BF club register.
For further information enquirers should contact British Fencing.”
Congratulations to Ethan, our Young Fencer of the Month! This was awarded for helping coach Taran at the Reigate Priory school fencing club, where we recruited a significant number of our fencers, some going on to win nationals. Ethan, like many, started fencing at the school in Year 5 (when he was shorter than Taran 😂), and after moving on to senior school helped Taran out for 3 years, supporting coaching and encouraging more youngsters to enjoy fencing. Our club is proud to celebrate not only results but being a great ambassador to our sport and an example to our younger fencers, well done Ethan!
