New to Fencing?

The club looks to introduce the sport of fencing to beginners. We do this initially through a six week Beginners' Course that is followed by regular 1 to 1 tuition with or coach.

The Club is able to loan equipment to beginners free of charge so you do not need to invest in anything other than socks and sports shoes until you are sure that the sport is for you.

Following the Beginners' Course items of Club equipment can be hired for up to 12 months until you have assembled a full kit.

Fencing is great for fitness, stress relief (!), and mental agility… it is like playing chess at lightning speed! It suits all ages and makes no distinction between gender, age or physical size.

Our Club fences Epee: the original dueling weapon where whoever hits first wins the point. We consider Epee fencing to be the purest form of Fencing there is, although we are obviously biased. We use electrical equipment to register hits so there is no requirement for a match referee and no arguments.

Fencing sessions at the Club are good exercise, mildly competitive and fun. We are very much a social club, but do hold internal competitions geared to suit fencers of all abilities.
