Natick, MA – The spirit of the Olympic Movement will roll into Natick, as Zeta Fencing hosts an Intro to Fencing Class in celebration of Olympic Day.
The popular weekly event series “Natick Nights” will feature a special Olympic Day event hosted by Zeta Fencing on Thursday, June 16, 2016. The fencing club is located in downtown Natick, at 11 South Main Street. At 6:00 pm, everybody is invited to join a free class that will introduce all ages to the Olympic sport of fencing.
Visitors will learn about the art of sportsmanship and its long history, take their first steps on a real fencing strip, and meet the Olympic US Fencing Coach Zoran Tulum, a Fencing Master and resident of Natick. The event will be co-hosted by Eli Dershwitz, a 2016 Olympian from Sherborn. Both look forward to answering questions and giving autographs.
Zeta Fencing’s introductory class is one of more than 2,000 events taking place nationwide during the month of June. The events, designed to engage youth and promote the ideals of the Olympic movement, feature athlete appearances, family-friendly activities and interactive learning experiences.
Around the world, more than 160 countries take part in the annual celebration. Olympic Day, created in 1948 to commemorate the birth of the modern Olympic Games, focuses on the Olympic values and ideals such as fair play, perseverance, respect and sportsmanship. In the U.S., Olympic Day events range from small gatherings to large, city-wide events.
