Around the clubs


Fencing has come a long way. It has developed from an ancient an of self-defence into an exhilarating modern sport.

Fencing produces flashing reflexes and springing agility, but still lets you relax and enjoy yourself.

But it's no use just watching? come along and join the VUW Swords Club.

Victoria last year at Winter Tournament in the fencing competition was one of the leading universities. This year the results should be even better.

Meetings are held in the gym on Wednesday nights from 8 p m. on.

Beginners are very welcome. For more information phone Roger Hayman, 45-309, or Richard Clarke, 13 City View Grove, Lower Hutt, at 697-783.

Sport Page

Salient wants the results of all local sporting activities in which Victoria teams take part for publication in the form of a table showing the result, the oppositing team and position on the competition ladder.

Presidents and secretaries of the various clubs should send results and reports of club activities to Salient's sports editor, lan Stockwell.

If possible, advance notice should be given of sporting functions which could be of interest. It could be arranged for a Salient photographer to be present.

Salient can also process film taken by other people of sporting events which could be of interest to readers.

The sports page should be a reflection of sport at Victoria, so give it Your support.
