Stourbridge Fencing Club has been working towards Swordmark status (see Club info page for more details) and had completed most of the steps. The requirements for this seems to have been largely superseded by other legal, NGB & Sport England requirements, so the process has been temporarily shelved. The club remains committed to its principles, as shown in our policy documents.
