We train most weeks of the year, except for long weekends and a Christmas break from late-December to mid-January.
On Saturdays, doors open at 9am, check the timetable on the Group Classes page for class details. Typically, classes include warm-up, physical conditioning, footwork and group drills, followed by fencing on the electric pistes. All of this is covered by your term fees.
On Fridays our after-school class for U12’s begins at 5pm. Club members and visitors can also set up pistes for bout practice between 5pm and 6:30pm.
Visitors are welcome; there is a $25 visitor fee. All visitors must be affiliated with their state or national fencing association. Club equipment is available for use if required – an additional hire fee applies.
During school terms, we have classes in sabre for ages 7+, and epee for ages 11+. Individual lessons and free-bouting practice can generally take place alongside classes.
Saturdays are our busiest session, so please note we can only accommodate new beginners at the beginning of term.
