Fencing

Louis Jennings travelled to Wellington to compete in the Open Senior Men's Epee event at the Aust/NZ open championship. Louis came 6th overall and was the  3rd New Zealander. A commendable performance especially considering this was an open event and he was fencing against some competitors who had 30+ years experience.
