Neale Thomas joins The Royal Tunbridge Wells Fencing Club

The Royal Tunbridge Wells Fencing Club is very happy to announce the appointment of Maitre Neale Thomas to the Coaching staff

 
Neale started fencing in 1971 under Prof Alf Mallard, competing regularly at schoolboy level for a few years in three weapons.  Having given up the sport through his university days it wasn’t until his 30’s he was bitten with the bug again and returned to the sport.  He competed on the Senior World Cup circuit and at the Commonwealth Championships in Malaysia 1998 & Australia in 2002.

When he stopped competing in 2003, he was asked to coach at a local club in Wimbledon.  His children started fencing and he eventually joined the cadet & junior GB coaching team.  In 2010/11 he joined the FIE coach education program & trained under Octavian Zidaru in Zagreb and Budapest, gaining his FIE Maitre D’Armes.  He is a BF level 5 registered Epee coach.

He has coached numerous fencers to Cadet & Junior World & European Championship level, his own children making ten Junior European & World Championships alone, and Gareth making a L16 finish at Junior Worlds.  From 2013 to 2016 was involved with the BF program as GB Talent coach.

Today he is a full time professional coach, coaching Fencers and Pentathletes in Epee at various clubs & schools through Surrey & the south east.

Neale will be running the Sunday session and working primarily with the Teenager and Adult members in preparation for competitions .We look forward to a fruitful and successful term under his tutelage.
