Club organisers and coaches:
The novice is a friendly event and it is a good opportunity for beginners/novices to get more experience fencing different opponents in a more competitive environment. Please encourage your less experienced fencers to attend the Novice event. Support your fencers by ensuring that they are fully equipped with two working foils and spare body wire (or can borrow from club/friends).
