On Sunday 19 March the ladies team from the Salle Coton fencing club, based in Tooting Leisure Centre, won the Surrey County team fencing championship held at Epsom College. In a thrilling final, the young Salle Coton team of Francesca (13), Remi (14) and Alice ((15) were pitted against the older and more experienced ladies team from St Paul's fencing club. The girls managed to fight back from a 12 point deficit to win the overall competition by 45 points to 42.
