Regional record-breakers

RTWFC’s fencers put in a great performance at the South East Regional Championships in Burgess Hill (4th February 2024) for the second year in succession. A whopping 19 of our 22 entrants – a club record – qualified for the British Youth Championships in Sheffield in May, the club’s royal blue adorned six of the eight podiums, and Eilidh Paterson was crowned U16 girls champion after fabulously holding firm in a nail-biter of a final. Huge congratulations to Eilidh, and fist bumps to all of our fencers for their character, camaraderie and competitive spirit.
