ON guard! A budding fencer from Solihull Sixth Form College foiled her opponents recently to win a fencing tournament.
Claire Jones, aged 18, from Chelmsley Wood, entered the FESCo Fencing Tournament at Hereward College and won.
The tournament was open to young people of all abilities and involved a 30-minute ‘taster’ so that participants could learn correct technique and rules - and then they were left to compete to find a winner.
Run by further education sports co-ordinators, the competitions cover a wide variety of sport and are open to all, regardless of ability. To find out more, contact the college’s FESCo Martyn Phillips at firstname.lastname@example.org.
