Newham Swords Fencing Club

About the Club

Newham Swords was founded in 2005 by International and Olympic fencers Linda Strachan and Pierre Harper and has rapidly gained a reputation on the national and international fencing scene for developing young fencers, many from what would be called disadvantaged backgrounds, into international competition winners.


The club is open to all youngsters from about the age of 6 upward within Newham and the surrounding boroughs and has recently extended to teaching adult beginners one night a week.


Newham Swords is a community club of around 90 members aged from six to nineteen years and who are from mixed ethnic backgrounds.
