Annual BBO County Fencing Foil Picnic

What a superb end to the three county competition season this year for Oxford Fencing Club.

The annual BBO County Fencing Foil Picnic, held at Moulsford Prep School on 6 June, was attended by a high number of OFC members. The format allowed matching of an U14 to an U18 to form a team. Fencers were chosen at random from all clubs and 23 teams were formed. The day saw each team fence at least 10 bouts to give everyone a good chance to score as many points as possible. The standard of fencing was quite high overall and the behaviour of all participants was commendable. After a full day's fencing everyone was ready for the fantastic spread organised by the BBO Committee. This was followed by the AGM and prize giving. Many thanks to the organisers Kate, Gordon, Milind and Raza.


OFC took home 1st place with Bianca Brooke clutching at half of the trophy (see picture). This is  a beautiful sculpture of two fencers engaged in fencing created by our own Martin Carter and entitled to the late Matthew Thompson, for many years coach at OFC. The full list of results follows but a particular mention is due to the fantastic duo of Erin Waters and Gordon Hardie (yes, he's under 18) who formed a team together and reached 3rd place with ease. Gordon says of Erin: ' Erin is a real star of the future. She's only been fencing 8 months so before her first bout I told her that her target was to get one hit and to make sure she had no more than four hits against her at the end of time. She won 5-2. No problems there then'

Well done to all who participated. Training continues throughout the summer at Rye until 3 July and at Radley College (Tuesdays only) from 7th July.
