Sport of the week!

This weeks unusual sport is Fencing.

Fencing is the European martial art, offering a physical and mental challenge. It combines speed and fitness with the need to be completely focussed on out-thinking your opponent. Because of this emphasis on speed and skill rather than strength, fencing is a good sport for women as well as men. It has been part of the Olympic Games since 1896.

There are 3 different types of fencing;

  • FOIL

  • ÉPÉÉ


If you are interested in fencing, or would like to start fencing, here are some websites which you might find interesting. They might even have a club or a team which you can join!
