The club are holding a ‘come and try it’ event at the Castle Sports Complex (7pm-8pm) for anyone aged 8–13 years.

Thomas Bayston, a fully qualified fencing coach, will host the session.

He said: “The taster sessions are part of Fencing 4 Free 2012, which hopes to provide schoolchildren in Lincolnshire with the chance to learn about the sport of fencing.

“With support from a number of partners and other clubs within the county, we have been able to deliver a number of free sessions for children and young people in the area.”

Places are limited on a first come, first serve basis and children must wear suitable clothing (indoor trainers, a loose fitting top and full-length trousers). They should also bring a drink, while parents are welcome to stay during the session.

Lynsey Norris, Sport Manager at Lincolnshire Sports Partnership, said: “I hope children in the local area take full advantage of what’s on offer in Spalding.

“This is a great opportunity for young people in Spalding to try something new and exciting.”
