Port Elizabeth Fencing Competition (14 November)

Three Nemato fencers participated in a competition in Port Elizabeth with fencers from all over the province. Owethu Nqowana and Zanele Daka won their age groups and Thulani Magongo finished third in the senior group.

East London fencing (31 October)

We visited a small fencing event in East London. It was a training session for modern pentathlon athletes who wanted to start fencing. It might one day grow into a new fencing club in our province, what would be great! Coach for the session was Jessica Raper from Excelsior Fencing Club in Port Elizabeth, helped by our fencer/coach Thulani Magongo.

Eastern Cape Open (22-23 August)

The Eastern Cape Open Fencing Competition was the first ever national ranking competition held in our province. We were proudly involved in organising this great event at the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University in Port Elizabeth. We had Zanele Daka competing for Nemato. It would have been nice if we had a few more fencers participating, but most fencers realised too late that as Nemato member, you need at least 90% attendance to enjoy going on trips. (You snooze, you lose!)

Training with Ingubo (May)

The fencing club of the Ingubo youth empowerment organisation has been down for a long time. We are very happy that the club has started again. We are doing our sessions together at Ingubo, that is based at the other side of our township, and has more space than us. We hope this is the start of a strong cooperation between our organisations, and we are looking forward to seeing both our clubs at the competitions.
