Youth Fencing

Sainsbury's 2012 School Games

The Sainsbury's 2012 School Games  will be held from the 6th - 9th May 2012 in the Olympic fencing venue at Excel in London - it will be the last event held there before it is locked down for the main games.

Fencing will take place over 2 days but the squad are required to participate in other activities over the four day period - this is likely to be an exercise to test the spectator facilities for other sports, making it a truly unique experience!
