16.11.21: Fencing this week / Comp. news / Xmas Dinner reminder


A reminder that we’re in the small gym again this week, which means we’re limited to 18 fencers across 3 pistes.

There’s no Beginners Course this week and no coaching available,  just free sparring.  Please specify a weapon choice when booking and we’ll try to group fencers accordingly, as best we can.

Please go  GO HERE TO BOOK A PLACE or go onto the reserve list if there are no places left.

If you have booked a place, but can’t make it, please GO HERE TO CANCEL A BOOKING and free up your place for someone else.

We’re back to normal in the main hall on 25th Nov.

See you on the piste….. en garde!!!!!!!!!!!  SAFC
