Congratulations to Tommy, Paul and Nick from Brixton and regular visitor from Redhill & Reigate, Harrison for their fantastic performance in the U23 Championships in Minsk this week.
Beating favourites Russia, and subsequently Belarus they finally lost to Italy in the semi finals, to finish an eventual fourth after Poland.
This is by far the best result from an GB Epee team for some time - and we are very proud of them all.

See Oana celebrating the win below.
David and Tarriq are at the European Cadet Circuit competition in Bratislava - watched over by Brixton coach Kamil.
There is thick snow there today - so lots of opportunity for apres-fencing enjoyment.
Good luck guys!
Many congratulations to Tarriq Roach who has just got another last 16 place in a european fencing circuit international. Not only is he GBs top ranked epeeist, but he is now top 10th in Europe.
Erin Pedler was selected this week to fence for England in Poland in March 2017.
She is part of a team of twelve young women fencers including just four under thirteens who will compete at Challenge Wratislavia, an enormous international with over 400 fencers from across the world. The competition is held in Wroclaw.
Erin has had a great season this year and is currently ranked second in the UK.
Great work Erin!
A great weekend for Brixton at the Elite Epee series. In the U16 Boys competition Tarriq Roach took Gold. The Senior Men's competition was held outside owing to a power failure. This was no hinderance to Brixton fencers who won Gold, Silver and Bronze. Paul Sanchez Lethem beat Tommy Curran Jones 15-14 in the final and Nick Beaumont took bronze. Well done to everyone who competed.
