Change 4 Life Fencing Club launched @ Ryton Comprehensive

Gateshead’s one and only Mini Fencing club was launched yesterday afternoon as part of the Change for Life Initiative being rolled out in Gateshead Schools.  It follows on from the success of last years Mini Fencing programme delivered in primary schools across the Ryton cluster.

The club will act as a stepping stone towards full on metal fencing with the aim of up-skilling pupils in this Olympic sport.  It is hoped that this will be the start of successful fencing career for all of those involved.
