An article in today's times shows that fencing has received 3.1 Million of Lottery Funding in 2008, it would be interesting to know where this money is being spent?

If you go onto the UK Sport web site, you can see how money has been spent on all the sports, and who the assisted fencers are ( top 2 tiers), tho' not exactley how the money is applied.

The under performing sports including FENCING will be the first have their budget cut due to the 100m short fall in funding :eek:
