We train in all 3 disciplines of modern Olympic fencing - Foil, Sabre and Épée. More about the club. We take a Christmas - New Year break, but otherwise we're unlikely to cancel except in the case of emergencies. Please get in touch if you are unsure whether to come along, or check Facebook for announcements.

Wednesday afternoon sessions run from 4:30pm to 6:30pm. The main class finishes at 6pm, and extra coaching is available from 6pm to 6:30pm. This new class is coached by Ralph Mills, aimed at young fencers aged 10-16. (Parents must accompany 10-year-olds.) Booking is essential. To secure your place on the Beginner Course, we ask that you pay the course fee in advance.

Wednesday evening sessions run from 8pm to 10pm. Junior fencers usually finish at 9.30pm. Every session starts with a warm-up, then we split the class - with some sparring, while others take group lessons or individual coaching.
Private coaching for non-members is available on request.
