Such interesting times we live in!
Please check below for rescheduled beginner classes.
Beginner classes – in the event of covid restrictions preventing us from fencing, courses will be “paused” until we are able to resume. You will get all 6 sessions, and possibly a bonus revision session if we can fit it in.
We cannot take walk-in trial sessions. Please contact us about the class you are interested in and we will happily schedule a free trial session in that group for you.
Ready to Fence?
If you are already a fencer and have all your own kit, then you are welcome to join us either as a prospective member or as a visitor at any time.
Please let us know you are coming so we can conform to current covid restrictions.
Check our Membership page for more details and costs of membership.
We offer rates for people wishing to fence just once a week, multiple times a week, or just visit occasionally. Family discounts are also available.
New to Fencing? Have a Go!
Free Trial for Beginners
For beginners, we offer regular try-out sessions for people who are keen to try the sport and see if fencing is right for them. You will need to register in advance with name, contact number and e-mail.
We will need size information to provide you with appropriate equipment.
Please note that “12+” includes all ages teen and adult. “U11” includes ages 7-11.
Next Free Trial Days:
None scheduled at the moment. Probably September.
