A wheelchair user joins the others in a fencing activity at KepplewrayOn Guard!

Fencing, described as " a physical game of chess," is one of the sports that has featured in every modern Olympics, and remains popular in many schools and colleges. Fencers, irrespective of their ability, learn good sportsmanship, self-discipline, gain quick reflexes and how to compete independently.

Fencing is undertaken by both able bodied and disabled people and:

  • Encourages children to get fit – you can't "sword fight" without a good bit of movement!
  • Helps young people learn to pay attention and to develop their decision-making abilities.
  • Delivers a great lesson in responsibility. As Fencing is an individual sport the participants are solely responsible for their own success or failure.

Fencing is an activity that captures the attention of people of all ages, and often those who tend not to be naturally physically active.

  • Expertly delivered our exhilarating and challenging activities are what makes Kepplewray a memorable and rewarding experience whatever your age or ability. Kepplewray offers a very broad range of activities allowing our instructors to tailor your activity programme to meet the objectives of your entire group.
