Well done to all those who fenced for the assassins this weekend- excellent results for Oxford, boding well for the rest of the season. Special mentions must go to Becky Martin and Maddi Pearce, who accompanied the team and showed great support throughout the day and to Francine Robb, who continues to show encouragement and enthusiasm for OUFC, whilst being the Leicester coach. Also, to Rosa Chrystie- Lowe who travelled to Leicester at short notice to join the team.
All the best,
I hope you have all had a good first couple of weeks of term. A few important notices this week so please take note of below.
Please continue to get your membership forms and fees to Grace. This is due by this coming Saturday.
Both the paper membership form and payment is required to complete your membership, and the bank account details can be found either in the club (e-)mail-out, or through getting in touch with the treasurer.
Please remember to put all kit away tidily in the lockers at the end of each session. This is as a courtesy to whoever is going to use it next and means the coaches are not required to do a massive tidy up at the end of each session.
All jackets need to be put away, zipped up on hangers.
The Men’s Assassins recorded OUFC’s first team victory of the season last week with a crushing 135-72 victory over Loughborough last Wednesday. Special mention to go to freshers Sam Bradley and Liam Stigant, who performed very well in their first outings for the club.
Congratulations to Becky Martin and Idalina Baptista who finished 2nd and 3rd respectively at the Berkshire Buckinghamshire & Oxfordshire County Foil Championships last week. A great result for both of them.
I am pleased to announce that OUFC once again has a fencer ranked within the top 10 in the British Rankings with Emma-Tina Segall making it up to 9th place for the October rankings. A massive congratulations to her.
I hope you all have a fantastic week and to all those competing this coming weekend in either the Elite Epee or Leon Paul Foil Open, good luck!
