An Interview with Serena Pivotti

Serena Pivotti was a successful international fencer who represented Italy at Women’s Foil, and is now a fully qualified international level coach at Ginnastica Comense. We have had the privilege of Serena’s coaching in Scotland on a couple of occasions now, and as part of our Coach Education Programme, Scottish Coaches had the chance to benefit from her knowledge, watching her give lessons and participating in a question and answer session at this year’s Scottish Fencing Summer Camp at SportScotland’s National Centre Inverclyde.

Wheelchair Fencing Introduction

Have you ever tried the challenge of wheelchair fencing?

Scottish Fencing, in partnership with the British Disabled Fencing Association, are hosting a two day event for the development of wheelchair fencing. Both days will provide opportunities for coaches, fencers and volunteers to learn the skills and rules necessary for wheelchair fencing and refereeing. 

Scottish Fencing is committed to inclusivity and to helping break down the barriers to participation by encouraging clubs, coaches and fencers to come and learn about wheelchair fencing at our forthcoming workshop.
