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.

Membership Categories

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.
