Fencer Dan set to represent GB in Romania
Daniel (Evans Y12) has been selected to join British Fencing's Cadet Sabre Squad to represent Great Britain at the European Fencing Federation's prestigious RIPOSTA CUP 2022 in Bucharest in Romania at the end of January. His selection follows his excellent performance in British Ranking Competition events across the UK over the national 2021-22 competition season. Daniel's achievement is particularly impressive as, due to Covid19 restrictions, he was unable to train for most of the 2020-21 season - this contrasts with the majority of the squad who attend schools with on campus fencing programs and were able to maintain training throughout. Dan trains locally with MX Fencing in Sevenoaks - they also run beginners taster sessions for both school age and adult fencers so if any pupil, parent or staff member would like to give it a go then they would be very welcome!
