West Dorset Fencing Club championships got off to a spirited start on Thursday with eight young fencers under the age of thirteen fighting for the Junior title. Fencing being equally a sport for girls and boys, the pool was mixed, but it turned out to be the girls’ night. From five boys and three girls, the girls were 1st, 2nd and 3rd! The winner was 12 yr.old Ellie Baldwin, who fenced with tremendous determination throughout the evening and won all of her fights, thoroughly deserving her first place. She was closely contested by her friend, Caitlin Oldham, also 12, who was runner up after an exciting final bout. 3rd.place and this year’s style prize went to one of the youngest members of the club, Isabel d’Arrigo, and it was a delight to see neat and controlled fencing from a young lady of only 8 years old !

West Dorset Fencing Club held their third annual Club Championships last Thursday at The Sir John Colfox School, and the progression from last year’s competition was very noticeable.
The Juniors fenced first, with twelve boys and girls under 13 battling it out with huge enthusiasm. After thirty fights had been completed the winner was Aldo d’Arrigo, 12, who showed tremendous determination and boundless energy throughout. Second place went to 11 yr. old Sam Norton and third to Ellie Baldwin, who did extremely well to come in the first three after fencing for less than a year. There was a prize for the best stylist, which was won by Caitlin Oldham, (11) another fencer of less than a year’s experience. She was a delight to watch.
