Mini Fencing Programme 2010


On Friday 9th July 2010, Gateshead’s first ever Mini Festival took place.  Nearly 50 pupils from Ryton Juniors, Emmaville, Blaydon West and Crookhill took part in the festival at Ryton Comprehensive School.

The day was the result of a comprehensive programme consisting of a Mini Fencing Teachers Course, a young leaders referees course and a lot of hard work from teachers to deliver the activity to pupils in schools.  Please find the results from the competition attached (Ryton_Mini-Fence_Table.pdf).

Thank you to everyone who participated, to the Young Leaders who refereed from Whickham School, to Beth Davidson and her team and to all of the teachers who have worked so hard to deliver sessions at school.

Fencing is one of several sports taking place at the UK School Games (UKSG) being held here in Gateshead and the North East between 2nd and the 5th September 2010.  For more information please visit the Fencing area of the UK School Games website UKSG - Fencing
