    Dear All

    The Epée Club established The Epée Club Charitable Fund in March 2015.

    As part of this strategy The Epee Club is supporting fund raising for a coach for the GBR Veterans Women’s Epee Team at the coming Veterans World Championships in Maribor, Slovenia in October

    A team of twelve veteran women epeeist will represent Great Britain. Ages range from 50-70+ years and all are self-funded. The Epee club wish to raise enough funds to send a coach with the team.

    Default Thank you

    A big thank you from the Veteran WE. Thanks to you all we managed to raise £500 and have Sue Benney as coach.
    It was a great help having an experienced coach steadying, advising and supporting. We nearly got an individual bronze through Jane Clayton who lost in the dying seconds by one hit and we did get some L8S and L16S.
    In the team we came 6/9 running into the USA who won the gold and had ex-Olympic fencers in the team.
    In the past we have come last.
    Onward and upward for next year
