Dear clubs and coaches,
After an exciting couple of weeks, British Fencing is pleased to accept Seb Coe’s challenge to “Inspire a Generation”!
During the Games British Fencing ran some GO/FENCE come-and-try sessions at both the London Pleasure Gardens and inside the ExCeL Centre. As part of this project we collected almost 1500 feedback forms from people of all ages who took part, with contact details and asking them if they wanted to join a club, give it a go again or let us know why it wasn’t for them.
With Sport England, we are working to “map” this information against all of our clubs so that we can point them in your direction if you’re interested to make sure that they have a fantastic experience and stay in the sport.
We want to work with you to do this and so want to know from you if you have the capacity to accept new beginners or “returners” (i.e. those who used to fence and want to come back to the sport)?
Just reply to [email protected] and let us know YES you want to be involved.
It would also help us if you could give us some further information to help us make this effective:
We will be focusing on a different club every week during the remainder of 2012 and promoting them on the home page – let us know if you want your club to be publicised in this way.
We look forward to your help with inspiring the next generation of fencers.
