Recent Competitions and Results 


Bristol LPJS, 21st February



After three days of training at the LP Centre over half-term, India George competed in the girls’ under 11 foil.  India was ranked 9th out of 11 after the only poule, with 1 victory recorded.  She then won her Last 16 Direct Elimination bout against a more experienced fencer.  Her second DE she was up against the leader of the poules who, on the day, was unable to cope with India's left handedness and that was an easy victory too.  India then met an experienced fencer from our neighbouring club Salle Oxon in the Semi and was even ahead at one stage, but went down a fighting 8-10.  


India’s mum said, ‘I think we had an element of luck and things definitely went our way on the day.  Being left handed helps when your technique still has a long way to go!’ 


We’re sure that with her hard work and training India will be winning more medals soon.  Well done and good luck with the rest of your LPJS season!


BBO Christmas Foil Rally, 7th December


20 teams battled it out all day at the BBO County Fencing Foil Rally held at Moulsford Prep School.

Among elves, reindeers and Santas of all shapes and sizes, our two teams held their ground with BB team (Iona, Bianca and Maria) coming 15th and HH team (Dylan B., Theo and Witold) coming 9th overall.

Well done to both teams for technically excellent fencing, good sportsmanship and cheer.
