Salle Eton Friendly

Salle Eton visited us on Tuesday 25th April for some friendly sparring against new opponents. They brought 7 fencers who fenced a mix of foil and épée. Rather than try to complete a teams match, we decided to maximise the number of fights we had against each other.

It was great to see the hall busy on a Tuesday night, and everyone who came along had a really good evening’s fencing.

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.
