We are looking for expressions of interest from any local athletes who have an interest in beginning the sport of Fencing in the weapon of Foil. The club will be working in affiliation with ZFW whose lead coach is Ziemek Wojciechowski. It is planned for these sessions to initially run on Monday evenings from 4.15pm.
Ziemek is one of the most respected and admired fencing coaches in the country and across the global fencing community. He has coached, and continues to coach, many of the country's top fencers, including the entire GB 2016 Olympic foil squad of Kruse, Davis, Halstead and Mepstead for a combined total of over 70 years! Ziemek, himself, is also a 10-time Olympian as both fencer and coach.
Additionally, ZFW hosts regular fencing camps, frequently attended by current international Foilists as guest coaches – most notably Andrea Cassara (2x Olympic Gold Medallist, 5x World Champion and 3x European Champion). Affiliated coaches of ZFW include Richard Kruse, Peter Barwell and Gabriella Varga.
