Chloe Dickson, at 22 years old, has been fencing competitively for half her life. Her journey began by accident, when at the age of 10 she found a bag of her Dad’s old fencing gear under a bed.

Engaging with Parents - West Lothian Fencing Club

Engaging parents is often an important step in a child's long-term involvement with a sport. Fencing is a sport that can be enjoyed by people of all ages, who can participate together within our dedicated community clubs. This allows opportunities for parents to engage in our sport alongside their children, which has huge social and familial benefits.
