British Fencing looks to inner-city projects to stretch beyond London 2012 Olympics

Nice piece from the Telegraph today talking about Newham Fencing – a local club (more information about them to be found here).

Chief exec of British Fencing Piers Martin had this to say:

“We are looking to make the sport sustainable and we want our clubs to go out into the community and create a social network.

“Our vision is to make a world-leading fencing family and we want to shatter the image that fencing is a rich, middle-class sport.”
