The spirit of Veterans Fencing!


Home Nations, Cardiff 2019


“Champions keep playing until they get it right”

Billie Jean King

Home Nations

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
