Berks, Bucks and Oxfordshire Christmas Foil Rally, 2 December

The festive atmosphere of the BBO Foil Rally was a great place for some of our junior fencers to gain experience (or more experience) of team competition.  Amidst the Christmas lights, fairies, French hens, geese allez-ing, turkey foils and the occasional (Foiliz Navidad) bull, matador, piglet and pirate, our teams wielded “Foils Around the Christmas Tree”, and brought “Piste on Earth”. Even our spare fencer found a two-person team to join, proving indeed that “It’s a Wonderfoil Life”. Well done to Esther, Luca, Vito, Ava, Cohen, Xavier and Ruby, for putting in a long day of fencing.
