Mitcham venue

Please Note: Our Mitcham venue is closed for renovation during term 4 2021.
We look forward to restarting Tuesday training early in 2022, but for now please check our other sessions.

We train at our Mitcham venue on Monday and Tuesday nights, 7pm-9pm.
The Monday session is a women’s only session, most suitable for ages 13+, and with particular focus on the Veterans (40+) age groups.
 
We train most weeks of the year, except for a Christmas break from mid-December to mid-January.

 

Tuesday training begins at 7pm for all fencers.  There is a group warm-up and footwork drills starting at 7pm.  These are followed by group drills, free-fencing practice and individual lessons. At the moment this session is predominately sabre fencing, but we have a few keen novice epeeists looking for more practice partners.

 

Visitors are welcome, there is a visitor fee of $25.  Visitors must be affiliated with their state or national fencing association.  Equipment is available for hire if required.
 
Location
Based in the city of Whitehorse, we can be found training at:
494 Whitehorse Road (Maroondah Hwy)
Mitcham
 
The school carpark is entered via the west-bound service lane, enter via Elizabeth street.  You can park anywhere on the asphalt – go to the left of the main gate toward the tennis courts to find us.
The hall is upstairs in the building nearest the train station, use the door near the tennis courts and the stairs inside the glass doors.  All exterior stairs are emergency exits only.

 

Please Note: At the moment construction works are disrupting access to the hall.  We recommend parking in the train station carpark behind the school, and locating the back gate on the exterior stairs to Durkin Hall.
Go past Elizabeth street, turn left at McGlone street, then left again when you reach the station carpark.  Park somewhere near the large construction works on your left and look for a small open gate in the fence.
