We’re on an incredible journey with the Arsenal Foundation. Together, we’re making a significant impact on the local children in our community through fencing.
Arsenal has shown its commitment to supporting local clubs, and we’re thrilled to be among those chosen. Their support has been a massive help, supporting our vision of introducing this amazing sport to as many children as possible.
A hugely memorable day for our young fencers was when Arsenal stars Vivianne Miedema and Stina Blackstenius visited one of our classes. It was no typical session! Aside from practicing fencing moves with our students, there were also photo opportunities and mask signings. What made it even more special was when the children at the school were given free tickets later that week to watch the stars play in the North London Derby!
This session also featured in the 22/23 home kit unveiling video (meaning we got an exclusive look at the new kit before anyone else!) They even gave us 5 of these kits to give out to students as special prizes.
We also got a little feature in one of their matchday programs as well as on their website as club member Hugo shared his journey with Fence Club 43, his thoughts on how fencing has helped him as an athlete and what he enjoys most about our classes
