Streatham Fencing club is 65 years old this year, making it one of the oldest fencing clubs in London.
The club continues to evolve and this January hired new coach Pavel Rynes. Pavel, also head coach at Croydon’s Whitgift School, will develop the junior and senior sections. Streatham wants to improve upon their 3rd place result in the 2013 London Team Trophy and their results in other open tournaments and develop fencing in the area.
In celebration of the 65 years, Streatham is offering free fencing at it’s Open House nights from Thursday 16th January to the 27th March. This is for fencers who’ve fenced before. Streatham also offers complete beginners classes starting on the 13th of February, graduates can then join the intermediate course.
Fencing is fun way of exercising and often attracts people who’ve not usually taken to traditional sports. It’s both an ancient art and modern sport.
