The cost of organising this day is being supported by HFA. PROGRAMME: The day will be suitable for fencers of all ages and abilities (Participants must be aged 11 or older). The day will include sessions focussing upon the development of physical abilities for fencing, footwork exercises in addition to weapon specific training. We hope that the day will be enjoyable for all participants and give them new ideas for their fencing.
