Stirling Sword 2017 - Results

As usual, the Stirling Sword competition was held at Stirling University - as usual, it was a well-attended affair with many fencers from far and wide.  It was great to see teams and individuals from numerous clubs, including fencers from ECE based in Paris.

On Saturday, GWEFC had teams in the Foil and Sabre events - both had similar results

  • 6th - "Charm Offensive" GWEFC: Maria Cabrelli, Constance Philippe, Helen Pitt, Ramsey Sartawi


Beginners Welcome

GWEFC will be holding an introduction to fencing course on Thursday 9th February. Give us a couple of hours of your time and we will teach you how to fence.  Bring a friend - it's better to learn together. There is no charge for this course.

All specialist equipment will be supplied by the club - this will be worn over your own clothes.  Wear clothes you will be comfortable working out in - but no shorts due to safety concerns.  You need to bring some indoor sports shoes with non-marking soles.  The building has changing rooms and showers available.
