World Record Attempt!

On Sunday 14th August 2016 we set up an Olympic-style Piste (courtesy of Leon Paul) in the café of Leicester’s Curve Theatre, where we attempted to break the world record officially called: MOST PARTICIPANTS IN A TEAM FENCING EXHIBITION MATCH.

We are proud to say that we achieved this and that Leicester Fencing Club is now an Official World Record Holder!

We want to say an enormous thank you again, to everyone who came down to fence, supported the teams, donated prizes and helped get the word out; without your commitment to our attempt we never would’ve made it. Fencers on the day were representing 17 different clubs from Leicestershire and beyond.

This record could not have been attempted without the fantastic support of the following.
