Weʼre raising £2,500 to buy new electric fencing equipment and competition standard uniforms to enable Scarisbrick Swords fencing club to expand its membership and compete in regional and national events.
Please help us take the next steps by contributing to our crowd funding campaign.
Scarisbrick Hall started an after school fencing club last year. The club's members have worked hard at passing their BAF bronze awards and four of them have recently attended their first public tournament, all winning medals in their relevant age categories. This was a great achievement, considering they were training with old uniforms and swords donated from a club that closed several years ago and they had to borrow more up-to-date equipment from well wishers to compete.
Pleased with this success, the school has given the club’s coaches permission to extend their activities to include a community club night and further competitive fencing opportunities. For this expansion to be possible, we need to raise approximately £250 per fencer and we would like to be able to offer an additional 10 places at the club starting with the new school year.
This would be the first step in realising our goal of establishing a new full-scale fencing club in the Southport area for the benefit of anyone who would like to experience the thrill of this most ancient and modern of sports!
