For many of you starting out on your fencing career you’ll be looking forward to competing with others. There are some great events around like the Youth Development Series run by the Foundation for Scottish Fencing in Scotland, and the Leon Paul Junior Series. If you have been fencing for a year or so, we’ve selected a number of competitions that you might want to think about doing in the forthcoming season. You will have to become a member of Scottish Fencing, but remember, we can supply all the kit you need for the event you are going to.
