    Cesh

    If you read the section 'About LPJS' on their website it states clearly that the tournament series covers ages 7-17.

    It is not for me to tell you whether your daughter or for that matter...

    Cesh

    As I said already final decisions need to be taken by parents or guardians. The coach should of course be consulted but is not the final arbiter.

    One final point. I am surprised that you...

    Cesh

    I have reread the original post and I would suggest that the poster is talking about best practice, because he is suggesting that fencers aged 13 are too young to fence against seniors.

    I cannot answer your question, because Camden ran only Youth and Cadet Competitions.

    What I can tell you that whilst I was running the club we complied rigidly with all legal requirements.That...

    Cesh

    We live in a democracy and it is not illegal for a 13 year old to fence in an Open which is technically an adult competition.

    The question is however what is 'best practice'. The original...

    Before someone picks holes in the World Cup Results yes there may be others in Womens Sabre. Jo Hutchison and
    Sophie Williams won probably medals as well.

    I want to focus for a moment on the women's side of the sport, because as I wrote earlier young fencers can
    probably cope better in adult competitions, because it is less physical.

    Indeed they...

    I have always advocated that fencing needs to widen its reach beyond London albeit that I am a supporter of
    the case for quality rather than quantity programmes. Fencing is never going to be a mass...

    I am no longer running Camden. However, all the coaches agreed with me at the time when I was that fencers
    should concentrate on tournaments in their own age group. Fencers aged 7-12 competed in...

    Frankly I see absolutely no benefit in competing against opponents whose sole objective is to use their size and
    weight to beat an opponent. Many promising young fencers have been lost to the sport...

    I agree with this view both as a parent and former administrator of a large club producing competitive fencers.

    I agree entirely that it is 'brilliant' that people want to fence.

    However, fencing as Cesh and many others including myself have suggested on many occasions is not a 'game'.
    It is a sport and if...

    I am not clear why sponsorship is a problem. As I have pointed out GLL have supported the tournament for many years. GLL have also sponsored Camden FC and I negotiated with them several years ago...

    I don't follow your argument.

    First you implied that the tournament should not include GLL in title and ask what they offer for privilege. I gave you the answer.

    Now you suggest that we should...

    This is the dilemma. Personally I do think that the entry fees need to be raised to a realistic level rather than charge a levy, which applies exclusively to British Fencers. However, at the moment...
