Global Drug Reference Online
(GlobalDRO) - a way to check whether you need to apply for an
exemption for your prescription or over-the-counter medicine- I found
I did! This is a partnership including UKAD.
European Fencing Confederation
- This site hosts internet broadcasts of top competitions in Europe.
The fencing FAQ - unfortunately no loger maintained.
Randall's World - advice, links, and pictures (including one we use for publicity - thanks Randall!)
Here are some web sites, which give an idea of what is available and what you might pay. Don't assume the cheapest price is always the best value for you, though. I would advise trying kit on before you buy - fencing kit is cut differently to high-street clothes! Note that some of the club coaches can arrange to bring kit to the club on request.
PBT UK - based near
Guildford. Talk to Ian (one of our coaches) if you want kit from
PBT, as he will be able to save you postage costs - he may even have
what you want in his van outside the club!
Allstar-Uhlmann in Slough
Leon Paul in London (old-established, but take a street-map to find it!)
Blades Brand UK - good
value equipment by mail order, now has a shop in Slough
Sword Price Fighters
- internet only with keen prices. Note that British Fencing
issued a statement on 7th March 2012 that clothing from certain
now-discontinued Swordpricefighters ranges is "suspended", so take
care if buying second-hand equipment. The British Fencing statement
gives details and can be read at https://www.britishfencing.com/important-notice-regarding-sword-price-fighters-protective-equipment/.
St Peters School. We
have no connection with the school apart from hire of premises.
The Surrey Advertiser, now re-branded as SurreyLive, our local paper.
Krystal - our domain name and web site provider.
Vodafone - our domestic Internet Service Provider.
SmoothHound, when you need a good cheap hotel near a competition.
These search engines are fast and comprehensive - and they find Guildford Fencing Club!
DuckDuckGo - has a "do not
track" policy for your searches
I moved our website domain name in 2002 and - as happened two years previously - the search engines took weeks to catch up. Honourable exceptions were Google and NTL (now discontinued), which updated within 24 hours!
