On Monday2ndJuly, Paul Davis Fencing Academy welcomed St Hilda’s School to their last sabre match in the Hertfordshire School Fencing Summer League. The girls fenced against selected PDFA athletes from the Monday Academy session. We would like to thank Simon, Luke, Joshua and Felix for stepping up to the challenge. St Hilda’s girls performed incredibly well and showed how much they all have improved since their last match. Their increased confidence and determination helped them to overcome challenges throughout the match.

These league matches continue to provide a valuable experience for school fencers who might be new to the sport and or might be using Electric fencing for the first time. We thank our referees for the evening; Scott and Lucas who encouraged all 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 thank all parents and guardians for supporting the school league; we value their encouragement and cheering during the matches! Very well done fencers!
