On Monday 11th June, Paul Davis Fencing Academy welcomed Aldwickbury and Sherrardswood Schools to their foil match in the Hertfordshire School Fencing Summer League. We thank our Academy fencers: Imogen, Jessica, Aiden and Ben who at a moments’ notice joined Jonah from Sherrardswwod to complete the teams. All young athletes showed great determination, sportsmanship and commitment. Throughout the match, we saw very entertaining and exciting points for all teams. Both matches seemed very evenly matched which is reflected in the final scores. These league matches continue to provide a valuable experience for school fencers who might be very new to the sport or they might have only competed within their school class. We thank our referees for the evening; Scott and our own PDFA Director Paul, both encouraged school fencers to use skills learnt at their school lessons and explained all awarded points to make sure all fencers learnt from the experience. We would also like to thank all parents for supporting the school league; we value their encouragement and cheering during the matches! Very well done fencers!
