Sign up for a fencing to St.Petersburg, 25 - 30 May 2013!

st petersburg After a four year break a new fencing trip to St.Petersburg is on the cards. The trip is suitable for all levels from beginner to advanced and for all weapons.

We will meet Russian fencers and coaches, have 2-3 training sessions and a small friendly tournament together. In previous trips we went to Spartak Academy but this time we'll be looked after by St.Petersburg veteran fencing team.

St.Petersburg offers fantastic opportunities for expanding one's cultural and emotional horizons. World famous theatres and museums, the palaces of the Czars and the monuments of the Revolution, churches and night clubs, the sombre past and the loud unconstrained present - it is all there, available for your inquisitive mind and the body. We'll be travelling at the end of May which is a particularly pleasant time: the nights become short and almost disappear, the weather is warm and the air is full of expectation.
