A WS going to Bristol wants to know what the sabre is like there. Who fences sabre there? Who coaches?

Thanks in advance.

Suggested contact - Bob Reeves, Athletic Facilities. Can't find his e-mail at present, but the admin could probably provide, and Neil coaches there. Hunt-Roeder's also near.

Sorry to be a bit of a heretic - but what's Bristol like for foil? Where's good to train? Hopefully will be there 08-09 for my PGCE.

Philip Wright is still at Bristol, and a good foilist.

He doesn't fence much at all at the University training sessions, though... Roberto Pinto fences at the University - don't know if he will have graduated by then: so much changes each year...

Best places for competitive foil fencing in the Bristol area are South West Foil Centre of Excellence (held at Westbury-on-Trim - which is part of Bristol) and Bath Sword.

Cheers boo. Bath seems quite a hike for a student type like me - no doubt it's well worth it.

The Centre of Excellence should definitely be manageable...

As far as Bath goes, see what happends when you get here: depending on who else fences at Bristol Uni at the time, you might be able to get a lift off of someone...

Feel free to come and see us at Bristol Fencing Club in Redland we do get a few good foilists in though it can be variable. A lot closer than Bath!
