Hampshire Veterans Open 2019

Hampshire Vets

Why do people join the NVA? Everyone remarks on the spirit and the atmosphere at the competitions. This comes from our having a common love of fencing and interest in the skill of the sport. Vets have usually given up the regular competitive circuit but the fencing brain is still there as sharp as ever
