One hit Epee competition (14th Feb)

Our monthly one-hit epee competition is coming up on Tuesday 14th February during the usual club hours (20:00-22:00). Please arrive for 8pm, and we’ll aim to be fencing by 8:15.

As usual the format will be a round-robin with the winner staying on piste after each bout. The overall winner is the fencer with the most victories from the 80 minutes fencing.

Everyone’s welcome (even if you’ve never held an epee before).

London Region Teams Event

We had two teams in action at the London Region Team event on 27th November.

Our Épée team (Oxford B) consisting of Mark, Tim and Shaz won the Épée competition in a very tight bout that went to time in the final leg. Shaz lost priority, but then scored a fantastic touch on his opponent’s back hand to win the match 13-12.

Our foil team (Oxford A) consisting of Robin, Martina and Harry had tough seeding poules, and didn’t make it into the final 4. All three of our foilists held their own, especially Robin who was fencing in his first ever competition.

Our autumn beginners course finished with a competition this week, where our new beginners could try out the things that they’ve been learning.

The winner was Edem, who managed to use well-timed attacks to defeat Joe in the final. Well done to everyone who completed the course, and competition. We hope that you  enjoyed the experience, and look forward to welcoming you as members soon.
