MEET THE COACHES
Hi there, my name is Conor Bateman and I am the head coach here at Warwick University Fencing Club. I am heading into my second year here at the club after moving to the area just over a year ago. I am looking forward to helping the club succeed in fostering greater fencing potential amongst experienced and beginner fencers. I look forward to meeting you all in September.
Hi! I’m Evan, a 3rd year maths student here at Warwick. I’m a qualified coach, and have been coaching here at the club for the last year, mostly in my primary weapon – foil, though I now teach all three weapons. I greatly enjoy working with our novice and intermediate fencers in particular – it’s extremely satisfying to see people new to the sport learn, develop, and ultimately prove themselves at various competitions. I can’t wait to see what talent the coaching team can bring out this year, in both our newcomers and returning fencers!
I'm Calum, a volunteer coach with the club for the last eight years. I am qualified in three weapons, and have coached international fencers across all age-groups. My career highlights include giving individual lessons to two Olympians, and being part of the team that won British Fencing's inaugural "Club of the Year award"
