Whilst it is not obligatory to compete, most fencers will want to refine the hard earned skills & technique they’ve worked on at club sessions by competing at events where they will get the chance to test themselves against other fencers. It can all seem a bit mystifying – especially for non-fencing parents so we’ve made a guide that you can download that we hope will help!

This is a practical guide for parents who have young sabre fencers who are interested in competing. Do also read the book ‘From Last to First’, by our Head Coach Jon Salfield and fencing mum and author Daniela Norris, for detailed info about the develop of young fencers. This guide has some practical stuff relevant to getting started in youth competition in the UK.
