Christmas 2021 Update

Christmas 2021 Closure and 2022 Restart Dates

The club's last sessions for 2021 will be Friday 17 December for Juniors and Monday 20 December for Adults.

If any of our younger fencers want to come along on that Monday for a bonus session and to try fencing a few adults or have a crack at epee or sabre, you will be more than welcome! 

The Club will restart on Friday 7 January 2022 for Juniors and Monday 10 January 2022 for Adults.


If anyone is struggling to think of gift ideas, we'd recommend that any fencer would be delighted to receive their own fencing glove and body wire for Christmas!


These are the two least expensive items of kit and it would help the club if more people had their own, especially as we want to continue to offer new members the chance to use our Club kit to get started in the sport.


Feel free to ask any of the Club committee members for more information if you are interested.  See the 'Club Shop' Link for branded Club clothing, and 'Other Links' for London and Slough based fencing kit and accessories retailers.


We hope you have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!


From all at Salle Eton.

 

Friday Junior Fencing in August is On!

The Club has decided to run Friday sessions in August, since there will be a number of our junior members who are around for some or all of August this year. 

If you have said that you are available then please make the effort to be there to keep the sessions busy and worthwhile for everyone.


There will be one change however, which is that our Junior coach Jacky Faulkner will no longer be with us. Her last night with Salle Eton will be Friday 30th July.

James Roberts our head coach will take the lead during August, and from September will be joined by Antonio Frullo, who currently works with James Roberts at our Senior sessions on Mondays.


So there's no shortage of support to help you improve your fencing!

See you on Fridays in August!

 

Club Kit on Offer

Breeches and Bags

9 October 2020

The club has a range of adult and junior club clothing kits to help out beginners and new fencers who will gradually acquire their own kit. Recently we have reviewed our stocks and identified that we have 13 pairs of white breeches - at both junior and adult sizes - which are surplus.  These items are not brand new but have had very little wear.  The majority are by Leon Paul, with some by Uhlmann.  

We are offering these on a first come first serve basis - see table below.   Note that one pair is clearly a female set of breeches since it has a right hip zip mounting. 


To receive a pair the club requests a donation of a minimum - it could be higher if you wish - 10 GBP. 


We also have 4 used small fencing bags - suitable for either 1-2 foils or one, possibly two epees which are available FREE on a first come first serve basis. See photos below.

In both cases please contact the club by email and write in the Subject line either BREECHES or BAGS and indicate which size / colour you wish to take.
