Philip Stowell

Philip Stowell has been created by robots to be the perfect fencing club treasurer, An Olympian himself, he disguised his clear talent on the piste by being a top-notch figure skater. Ice, ice baby. He subsequently transferred to so-called ‘normal’ employment and moonlighted as a ‘fencing dad’ to Dom for more years than he cares to remember, and is now a uniquely-termed ‘performance fencing coach dad’, which is a new one on him as well as on the rest of us. If you have any queries about any aspect of the club’s finances, then you can email Philip at:

Head Coach

Dominique Szokolovics

Dominique Szokolovics is our head coach and represents all coaching staff on the committee.


Welfare Officer

Welfare Officer

Isidora Valetti

Isidora Valetti is a Serbian South African married to an Italian South African who lived in Paris. Try and beat that, Kissinger. Isi is therefore well-versed in complex international inter-dynamics and, to boot, is a trained and practising psychotherapist. We have put this genius of the understandings of the mind in charge of looking after our young fencers and their well-being, which is – of course – at the heart of what we do.

So if anything is wrong or even slightly not working to its optimum and affecting you or anyone else, then please email:

Other Committee Members

As well as the above committee members we have a number of members who ensure the smooth running of the club.

Fencing Liaison

Fencers Liaison and Fencers Representative

Claire Johnson

Unable really to classify any club staff as ‘yummy mummy’, we are resigned to Claire being our designated Fencers’ Liaison Personithingymajig. Indeed, she is very good at it. She has been on a ‘Fencers Production Programme’ which was 100% successful, and she now has four children who are clinically-proven to get on piste and fight for their life on the promise of a jam sandwich. Claire can help with … erm … lots of things. And if she can’t help, she will smile at you and make you feel better.

Armorer and Website Manager

James Joy

James is our Armourer as well as our Website Manager.

He is the father of one of our senior fencers, who was always breaking things, hence he decided to do an Armourers course. He is available during our Wednesday and Saturday sessions.

As well as fixing foils, he is also experienced in Cadet, Junior and Senior competitions and more than happy to answer questions as well as give advice and show fencers and parents how they can fix their own kit.
