Yup - that's where the boy started - lunchtime Friday and then after school, too.

We did a demo at the school we fence in - to set up a juniour section - the school was so impressed thay asked the coach to set up a school class - it's now 40 strong plus waiting list.

I run a school club - Wed & Thur after school, plus Mon night when we're open to "outsiders".

I'm the secretary (and unoffical treasurer) of my school club.

The club was started on November 7th 2003, and I've been going ever since. At first just on Thursdays, but now another class runs on Mondays (both after school).

Last summer (during exams and stuff) there was often only me and another girl there, but before that it varied from 4ish to about 8.

This year we have to run a register, and there is about 10 people in each class (we have ten kits), with about 5 who overlap (going to both), menaing there's about 15 in total.

Last Friday we entered most of our newbies (been fencing since Septemeber at most) into a small friendly comp between local schools. It was great fun, they were very scared at first, but the second they started winning their whole body-language changed. It was wonderful to see them really enjoying it (especially seeing all these tiny- and that's coming from me- year sevens beating lanky great 14-16 year old boys!)

Are you asking about school clubs for any particular reason, or just curiosity?

Yeah the school i'm working at has a club, and its doing alright... not just restricted to school kids either - we get adults and littlies and all sorts coming to fence... so its really quite cool
