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.
We also have a number of special events and classes planned to help beginners get started. Check the dates below.
New to Fencing? Have a Go!
This Girl Can Week (March 18-24)
We are running 2 special sessions for This Girl Can Week! These are free for women of all ages, beginners are most welcome and we provide all the equipment.
Tuesday March 19th, 7pm-8pm
“Mums and Kids Session”
494, Whitehorse Road Mitcham
It can be hard to get out for sport when you have kids to look after. Our Tuesday session has kids and adult classes running alongside each other so the whole family can enjoy a little swordplay!
For this session, Mums and kids will fence in the same group and encourage each other. We recommend the kids be aged at least 7 if they want to sign up for a class, but Mums can be any age.
Saturday March 23rd, 10:30am-11:30am
“Come and Try Fencing”
Nunawading Community Centre
This session is suitable for women and girls of all ages. Come and join us for an introduction to the sport, you are also welcome to stay and try your new skills on the fencing piste after the class!
Our Saturday classes are also family friendly, with kids and the adult novice classes running side-by-side from 9:30am.
