About Foilling Around
- I started fencing at the age of 24 in my final year at university with the late Prof Hawksworth. I only joined the club to help out a friend with numbers, but once I had a go I was hooked. I moved on the my MSc in Glasgow and fenced for Strathclyde Uni and at Bellahouston. Being coached by Derek Titheridge.
After my year in Scotland I was luck enough to find myself working in Fulham, just 5 minutes walk from the De Beamont Centre, then the BF HQ and meeting place of LTFC. I was even luckier to be able to take 3 lessons a week from Prof Brian Pitman
Having scraped into the top 20 in the National Rankings I backed off as a competitive fencers as my 3 children arrived on the scene. When they became old enough I took up coaching.
