Auckland had their first ever pre-UniGames training camp on Saturday 21st March at Rangitoto College, organised by the NZ University Fencing Council President, Nancy Liu. This camp is run for NZ university fencers, by NZ university fencers. The main aim of the camp is to prepare university fencers for their most exciting annual University event: UniGames!
The camp concentrated on fitness, basic foot- and blade-works. AUF and SJL club based Coach Andrew Imms, taking into the consideration of the expensive hall hirage (and poor university students), ran the training camp on behalf of the fencing council FREE OF CHARGE!!! This was most appreciated by all who attended. University fencers are very privileged to have Coach Andrew Imms based in Auckland and generously donating his time for university fencing.
