Prospective Members

Ready to Fence?

Whether you’re thinking of trying fencing for the first time, or an existing fencer looking for a club to join, we would love you to drop in to one of our training sessions and see what we’re all about.

As fencing is a sport most people have limited knowledge of, prospective members are welcome to have a go to see if the sport is right for them before signing up.  You can participate in a free trial session at the start of each term.

We also have a number of special events and classes planned to help beginners get started.  Check the dates below.
