Coming to Swift Current this weekend is the Provincial Championship Fencing Tournament that will conclude this year's season.

The tournament begins on Saturday, April 6 from 9:30 am to around 5 pm and 8:30 am - 4 pm on Sunday, April 7 at the SCCHS gymnasium.

Denise Barbier, president of the Swift Current Fencing Club, is thrilled for the local athletes to showcase their skills. 

"Not a lot of people necessarily know Swift Current has a fencing club," said Barbier. "We'd like to get the word out and encourage people to support these young athletes."

Community members are welcome to watch the tournament, admission is free of charge and a canteen will be open as well.

"We have a small club here in Swift Current but our fencers are doing quite well," Barbier noted. "This is their opportunity to show what they do."
